I'm not sure if this will help or not.I also have a Jacob and Margareta Schneider in my family tree. They came to the U.S. sometime around 1840. This is the info I have on them: Jacob Schneider born Sept 28, 1829 in Hessen Germany. died May 21, 1908, Pulaski Wisconsin. Wife:Margareta Schneider. born July 8, 1829 in Prussia, died August 25, 1911, Pulaski Wisconsin. I'm looking for names of all their children.I only have one listed, William Schneider born 1859, died 1946.
