I am still trying to locate living family members of Marie Schneider Brown, daughter of Joseph Schneider and Sarah Both for my elderly cousin. My cousin was adopted and has always wondered about her biological family. This is what I know: Joseph W.Schneider b 1869 Ohio(parents b.Germany),and Sarah Both b.1881 b.Ohio(father b.Germany and mother b.OH),had a son Joseph John b 1899 in Ohio;they came to Traverse City,Grand Traverse,Michigan where they had daughters Clara b 1905, Lorene? or Helena? b. 1909 and Marie E. b. 1901. In 1921, Joseph John married Josphine Allers daughter of Johns Allers or Allerse and Estella Bigelow. Marie gave birth to my cousin in 1919; In 1923, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Marie married George E.Brown (parents possibly Ora Brown and Margaret Judway (or Judaway), b.1899 in Petoskey, MI. I do know that they ended up living in or near Lansing, MI. George was a toolmaker for motor cars. Jospeh John Schneider may have moved to Detroit and had sons Robert,Joseph III,Charles and Margaret. Surely someone out there knows this Schneider family??
