I am taking a chance by using Schneck to obtain info about my Schneickert ancestors from Germany. There are only two Schneickert families from Kansas and San Jose, CA. Henry Schneickert, my 2nd great grandfather, was born in Germany in 1847. He came out to San Jose CA where he worked for H. Messing and Son in downtown San Jose as a carriage trimmer. He married H. Messings daughter, Anna Messing. The Kansas Schneickerts go back' to about the 1840s as well with the last known Schneickert named George Henry.Any other Schneickert information would be of great help. Thank You.
