El Dorado County








      Ernest G. Scheiber, one of El Dorado county’s enterprising and progressive business men, is conducting an up-to-date general merchandise store at El Dorado and is meeting with well merited success.  He was born in Diamond Springs, El Dorado County, on the 24th of September, 1906, and is a son of L. J. and Bertha (Schneider) Scheiber, who are referred to in a separate sketch on other pages of this work.  Mr. Scheiber attended the public schools at Diamond Springs, the high school at Placerville and Heald’s Business College, from which institution he graduated in 1929.  He had striven hard to secure an education, working during the summers as a timekeeper and bookkeeper in the logging camps and attending school during the winters.  On January 1, 1930, there came to him the opportunity of buying his present business, and he wisely took advantage of it.  He carries a well selected stock of such lines as are demanded by the local trade and, with the able assistance of his wife, has built up a business which reflects very creditably on his judgment and methods.  He is also filling the position of assistant postmaster.        Mr. Scheiber was united in marriage November 30, 1929, to Miss Alice Niven, who is a native of Oregon and is proving a true helpmate to her husband.  Mr. Scheiber is a Democrat in his political views, while, fraternally, he is a member of the Free and Accepted Masons at El Dorado, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and he and his wife belong to the Order of the Eastern Star.  Mr. Scheiber is fond of outdoor sports, particularly of gold and baseball, and, socially he and his wife are popular in the circles in which they move.
