    2. [S21639] History Effingham County, Illinois, William Henry Perrin, 1883, 146.
      JOHN F. WASCHEFORT (deceased), was born in Essen, amt Cloppenburg, Oldenburg , Germany. He emigrated to America in 1832. After prospecting for some months over various parts of Ohio, he finally located at Cincinnati. He devoted himself to learning the trade of rope and twine making, and in 1835, formed a partnership with John H. Hakman and George Venneman, for the purpose of manufacturing rope and cordage.

      Soon this young firm began to prosper, their business assuming larger proportions from day to day. A few years of success at Cincinnati induced them to establish two branch houses; one at Evansville, Ind., under the management of George Venneman, which, in addition to a well-selected stock of ropes and twines, had a large stock of groceries added, which, in a few years after its establishment, ranked as one of the largest jobbing houses of that city.

      The other house was established at Teutopolis, Ill., under the control of J. F. Waschefort. The original partnership, formed in 1835, continued until 1857, when the same was dissolved by mutual consent.

      During the existence of this partnership, which continued during twenty-two years, Mr. Hakman managed the Cincinnati house, Mr. Venneman the Evansville branch, and Mr. Waschefort the one at Teutopolis. At the final dissolution and in the division of property, each partner retained the business under his respective management.

      To the Teutopolis house Mr. W. lent all his energy and business ability, starting with a small stock of goods usually kept in country stores, he soon enlarged the same and made it the trading place of the surrounding country. He soon added the pork packing business, making a market for fat hogs. The product was in those early days transported by wagon to Evansville and St. Louis, finding a market at New Orleans.

      In 1856, he built at Teutopolis a large steam flouring mill, to which he added a complete saw-mill. In 1860, he opened a branch store at Effingham, that city having been made the county seat. All these various enterprises, which tended so much to develop this neighborhood, were kept under his immediate supervisons up to the time of death, which occurred in January, 1879, he then being sixty-eight years of age.

      He was of a quiet and reserved disposition, assisted the needy, and to all who were willing to work he extended a helping hand. Many remember him as having received through his generous assistance their first start in life. His wife, Mary, to whom he was married in 1839, was a noble-hearted lady. She died in January, 1873.

      They have four children now living—two daughters residing at Cincinnati, one daughter lives at Teutopolis, the wife of Dr. H. Eversman; and an only son, Ferdinand, who succeeded his father's business at the old homestead. Mr. W., being one of the original organizers of the colony of Germans who settled at Teutopolis, was intimately associated with its development and progress. All public enterprises received from him substantial support and aid. Their fine brick church, large college for higher education, a fine sisters' academy and parochial school attest the regard he paid to education in that small village.
