Catherina Schneider

Lying flat on the ground in Oakland Cemetery is a tombstone for Catherina Schneider. Catherina was the wife of Andreas Schneider.

In SANDUSKY THEN AND NOW, we read in the Family Register of German Settlers in Sandusky, 1840-1852, that Andreas Schneider was born in 1809 and died on October 12, 1861. Catherina Schneider was born in 1815 and died on October 25, 1863.

The 1855 Sandusky City Directory lists three persons who could possibly be the Andreas Schneider who was married to Catherina. Andrew Schneider (Andrew is the English version of the German name Andreas) was a laborer living on Clinton Street. There are also two listings for A. Schneider, both stone cutters, one living on Market Street in Sandusky, and one living on Wayne Street.
