William Schuchman (1824 - 1864) was a German-American lithographer based in Pittsburgh. Schuchman was born in Hessen, Germany. Both his and his brother George Frederick Schuchman were '48ers' felling the failed Springtime of Nations revolutions in Germany. They immigrated to the United States in 1848, settling in Pittsburg in 1849. He is credited with issuing the first lithograph in Pittsburg, around 1850. Schuchman and his brother set up their lithographing studio in Pittsburgh in 1849. Their first advertisements appeared in the Pittsburg Daily Gazette on October 15, 1849. He was a Mason. Schuchman disappears from all records and presumably died in 1864 - in the Civil War?
