Antoine "Anthony" Sauter (May 4, 1848 – April 16, 1905) was a machinist, once foreman of various shops in the Roanoke Machine Works.


Early years

Sauter was born on May 4, 1848 in Mulhouse in Alsace, France, to French parents. There he attended public and private schools, and worked for the Koechlin machine shops from 1863 to 1867. On April 21, 1869, he married Catherine Senn in Mulhouse.


Following the Franco-Prussian War, the Sauters left for America, arriving in Jersey City on April 1, 1872. He worked in Jersey City for the Erie Railways Company until its shops were consumed by fire, and then he moved to Susquehanna, Pennsylvania to work for the same company. He arrived in Roanoke on July 4, 1882, staying for 13 years the foreman of its machine shops. Sauter moved to Lambert's Point where he was dubbed a "master mechanic" and to Norfolk. Sauter spent a short time with his son as foreman in Portsmouth, Ohio before he was taken ill. He died of endocarditis in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the German Hospital on April 16, 1905.
