The former was a native of Baden, Germany, and died in Saugeen, Ont., in 1856, and the latter, who resides now in East Zorra, Ont., was born in the State of Ohio in 1823, and married the second time, Harman Schmidt, who died in St. Louis in 1874. Mrs. Schuler's first husband had been a school teacher for twenty-five years, in New Hamburg, Ont., where he was keeping a hotel about the time of his death. The subject of this sketch was united in marriage, on 21st November, 1861, to Mary Ann Reynest, who was born in Paris, Ont., on the 6th Dec., 1845, and they are both members of the Church of England. Mr. Schuler acquired a good common school education, and engaged in the pottery business in 1868, which he changed into the manufacture of stoneware in 1873.
