"This desk was made by Mr. C. J. Scheuberger in Houston Texas about 1865 or 1870. The Scheubergers lived on Tennessee St. since 1905. Mrs. Scheuberger passed away at the age of 96 this past Sept. These people owned a store in the early days of Houston and were Penn. Germans who settled in Texas in the 1840s & 50s. The desk is made of native curly yellow pine."
