Philip A Schoenung


Photographer: A. P. Schoenung
South Milwaukee, Wis

Philip A Schoenung
(Jun 1862 - 1912)

Following an unusual name like Schoenung in Milwaukee, WI, was not difficult. Unfortunately, no document, US Census or City Directory, connected him to being a photographer. According to records he was a teacher, a printer and an insurance salesman.

1881

1891
married to Christine Schoenung
1892

The only document found that states “South” Milwaukee, WI. is the birth of his son Peter in 1894. It is just a guess that the photograph was made around then.
