Joseph Shedler (April 27, 1813 - December 12, 1887) was a German American lithographer and engraver. Born in Enger, Baden, Germany, it is likely that Shedler immigrated to the United States after the 1848 revolution in Germany. Shedler and his family settled in Jersey City, where he established a lithographic and engraving business. Shedler may have had as many as twelve children.
