I seek info on Charles Frederick Schneider, born 1815 somewhere in present-day Germany. In 1815 Germany was not yet a unified country; I don't know in which state or town he was born.
He did military service somewhere between 1835-1840 after which he emigrated to Canada, changing his name to the anglicized Snider.
He settled in Collingwood, Ontario and married Jane Kettles from Collingwood. Charles F. became a baker, and he and Jane had several children. Jane died in 1857 or 1859. The family moved in 1859 to Bruce Mines, Ontario.
Charles Frederick Snider died 3-31-1888 in Bruce Mines.
I would like to know the names of his parents and in what state and town was he born. Also, I'm especially curious if he might have a Jewish lineage through one or both of his parents.
