About Peter L Schlee

Peter Schlee commenced his independent career in 1861 as a boatman on the canal, running from Bloomsburg, Pa. He took the first soldiers to enlist from Columbia County for the Civil War, the “Iron Guards,” from Bloomsburg to Harrisburg, to be at Camp Curtin, where they were accepted. On Feb 15, 1864, Mr. Schlee enlisted at Danville in Company H, Baldy guards, and was ordered to Brandy Station, VA, whence he was sent to the wilderness, participating in the lengthy engagement, and also in those at Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor and Petersburg, where he was in a skirmish and engaged in throwing up entrenchments. From that point the regiment embarked for Washington, D.C. and had a fight outside the city, and Mr. Schlee remained with his company until honorably discharged, June 29, 1865. After returning from the army, Mr. Schlee resumed boating, but after a year engaged with the Reading Railway Company, also for a year. He then began farming, being employed by Jesse Mensch, but after six years of agricultural life went back to the railroad work, engaging with the Pennsylvania Company, with which he still remains. Politically he is a Democrat. Fraternally, he belongs to the Knights of the golden Eagle. Mr. Schlee is married to Elizabeth Loreman, a daughter of Samuel and Mary (Everett) Loreman of Franklin Township. Mr. and Mrs. Schlee have become the parents of the following children: Mary Ellen; Samuel F; Harvey J and Margaret El, who married Edward Hartman; Peter L; George R; and Priscilla, who married T. Mensch. (Historical & Biographical Annuals of Columbia & Montour Counties, Pennsylvania; Vol II, J.H. Beers & Company, Chicago, 1915)
