GEORGE C FLECK, a business man of Lawrenceburg, is a son of Casper and Marie (Centner) Fleck, who came from Germany to the United States in 1841. The father was born March 2 1822, was a miller, and was the only one of four sons who came to the United States. He drove the stage for some time, but in a few years became a boss drayman, and also traded in horses until his death, which occurred July 28, 1890, at Cincinnati, Ohio. George C. Fleck was born February 23, 1851, in Cincinnati, and is one of eight children, of whom Frank J. died at four years of age. George C. attended the common schools until he attained the age of fourteen, and then worked at the carver`s trade for four years. He next learned the carriage and buggy trade, and worked at that for twenty-five years, after which he engaged in the liquor business. He was married to Miss Carrie Schneider, a daughter of Joseph Schneider, of Cincinnati, and to this marriage have been born two children, George J. and Anna M. The family are members of St. Lawrence`s church, under the pastorate of Father Sondermann, and Mr. Fleck is a member of the Knights of St. John. The residence of our subject is above his place of business. He is a democrat in politics, but has preferred to devote his time to attending to his business affairs, rather than meddling with party contentions.
