We believe that the owners of Schapery & Company were Oscar Schapery (1857-1931) and/or his son Harry Oscar Schapery (1883-1971). Harry was married in 1910 to Fannie Berg Schapery (1893-1958) and they had two children. Fannie and Harry died in St Louis County and were buried at Temple Emanuel Cemetery in Duluth. Tree data for the family are shown in the three-generation descendents list for Oscar and his wife Fannie Ann Cherkosky Schapery shown below.
