     FRED T. SCHEIBNER resides in the vicinity of Lincoln postoffice, Douglas county, and is one of the prominent farmers and fruit raisers in that section.  He is the son of F. M. and Johanna (Wollersdorf) Scheibner, natives of Germany and pioneers to the Big Bend country.  A review of their lives appears elsewhere in this work.  Our subject was born on June 21, 1872, in Roane county, Tennessee and there and at the graded schools in Wilbur, he received his education.  He remained with his father until of age assisting in opening up the frontier farm and had the satisfaction of seeing almost the entire estate broken up before he started in life for himself.  For a time he labored for wages on the farm in the Big Bend and Palouse countries and then bought three hundred and twenty acres of land, from the railroad company, which lies nine miles northwest from Almira.  He devoted himself to the improvement of this until 1902, when he sold the estate and took a homestead in Grand Coulee, in Douglas county.  He purchased one hundred and sixty acres adjoining the same, making him a very fine estate, valuable and fertile.   He has erected commodious buildings and improved it with everything necessary for a stock and grain farm.  Mr. Scheibner has a twelve acre apple orchard and displays marked thrift in all his labors.  He is one of the Big Bend's stirring, progressive and substantial citizens and has passed through all the ups and downs and hardships incident to a pioneer life.  He has the following named brothers and sisters, Charles F., Laura, wife of J. S. Jenkins, William F., Louisa, wife of E.T. Eckel, Lilly M., wife of Oscar Osborn, Oswald R. and Henry.
     Thus far in life, Mr. Scheibner has not seen fit to take unto himself a wife but is still a jolly bachelor.
