      Joseph Schepers of McBain, Michigan, better known as Jos., was born in Ackley, Iowa to Rev. John Schepers and Mrs. John Schpers in 1881.

      Rev. Schepers came to Missaukee county in January of 1862 and settled in Clam Union Township where he was pastor of the Christian Reformed Church. He was known as the father of that denomination in Northern Michigan, having been its first minister. Also, he had organized all the churches of that denomination in Missaukee County except the one at Vogel Center in Clam Union Township. He continued in the active ministry until his death August 13, 1902. He was the father of eight children

      On June 6, Mr. Joseph Schepers and Miss Katie VanDePol of Forward, Michigan were married. She was the daughter of Peter and Sarah VanDePol.

      To this union seven children were born: Mae Schepers (Young), Percy, Virginia who died in infancy, Hiram, Sarah Schepers (Brown), Raymond, and Bob.

      Mr. Schepers attended business college in St. Louis, Michigan. He was in the merchantile business for some time and later a cashier of the McBain State Bank for several years.

      He took a deep interest in public affairs and was involved in most city projects. He was mayor of McBain, on the city council, treasurer of the McBain public school board. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church.

      In 1917, he began selling insurance for AutoOwners Insurance Company which is now being sold by his son, Raymond, and grandson, Donald. This year is their 65th aniversary. It is now Schepers Insurance Agency, Inc. He was well known in the area and had many friends.
