Adolph "Abraham" "Abe" ASCHER (1875-1941)
Berneice (c. 1892- )
Anna B. ASCHER
1971 (age 59-60)
Abe lived with his parents until after 1910. In 1900 he worked in a
tannery. In 1910 he was a salesman of suits and cloaks. By 1920 he
was retired and living at 164 Melbourne Ave. with his wife, Berneice,
and their daughter, Anna. They owned the house fully with no
mortgage. At some point, Abe ran a saloon in Detroit on Hastings
Street. He went into real estate with Sol and developed Ascher Beach
in Port Clinton, Ohio. He also was in politics and helped elect
Governor Grosbeck. Grosbeck in turn gave Abe a job as oil inspector,
and Abe got a state car to use.
Harry Ascher remembered visiting Abe and Berneice in "the house on
Montcalm," so maybe Abe continued to live there for a while after his
parents passed away or moved out.
