Samuel Breneiser was a clockmaker at Adamstown and made a good many clocks, which are still in use in the northwest part of our county and over in Berks county. He was among the later manufacturers, and seems to have been located at different times at both Reamstown and Adamstown. His period was about from 1840 to 1860. We know of one of his clocks which had a price mark of $80.00, which is still in it, which was rather more than they cost in the earlier years. Quite a number of his works can still be found and indications are that he made more clocks than some of the better known makers. Samuel Breneiser also had a brother [George] in the business, at Womelsdorf, Berks county. His clocks are not rated as of a high grade of workmanship.

Samuel married Catharine. (Catharine was born about 1810 in , , PA.)
