Sercomb was born in northern part of the city, and his first primary education was received in a select school in the home of one of the pioneer women. After that he attended a select school on the east side that was afterwards merged into the Milwaukee University, which for years held a prominent place among the educational institutions of the west.
Many of the leading men of our city and state were pupils of this university. After its dissolution, he attended the Fourth ward public school, of which the well-known attorney, DeWitt Davis, was then principal. Later, he attended the Second ward high school. Sercomb is a great admirer of the public school system.
Though having a good home and the best of parents, he, like many another boy, was anxious to enter the ranks of the wage-earners. To this his parents strongly objected, but finally yielded, and he left home to learn to be a miller, but found as boys of similar ambition often have, that this trade ws distasteful. He found that making one's way was not so attractive, and, returning home, entered his father's works, where he acquired the trade of a machinist and a full knowledge of the business at the same time, alternately attending to the duties in the office and taking a place at planer, lathe or vise in the shops.
Sercomb's first essay in business was in the grocery trade in the Third ward. Selling out his interest in this, he took a one-half interest in a grocery and commission store on the west side. Disposing of his interest in this establishment, he went west, working at various places as machinist, engineer, etc. Tiring of this life, he accepted a position with one of the leading railroads as engineer, and remained identified with railroad life for many years, occupying positions of trust on several different roads, so that he is well known in the west by railroad, men with whom he is a great favorite.

Sercomb served in the volunteer army against the rebellion, first in the nd Illinois infantry, and also in the 37th Wisconsin infantry, as first sergeant.
He is an interested member of the Wolcott Post of that fraternal and patriotic organization, the Grand Army of the Republic. Sercomb has always been a Republican, and a believer that all money is determined in its value by the ability of the government to redeem it in gold, and that free trade is a theory that will never materialize until all nations pay the same wages for the same labor.
