Lori, I don't believe my Carl or Karl Anton Schöttler is your husband's direct ancestor. My Karl was born 03 Jul 1854 in Hallenberg, Germany and was one of 13 siblings born to Franz Josef Schöttler & Anna Maria Vogt.Karl and his brother Josef Eberhard immigrated to St. Louis, Mo. in 1876 and followed by brothers Joseph Heinrich, Joseph Hermann and sister Maria Emma Schöttler.Karl married Frances Wahle in 1881 in Cincinnati, Ohio and they returned to St. Louis.There was a son, Joseph Anton C. Schoettler, but no record of that he had any children.
Karl died in 1908 and is buried in Calvary Cem. in St. Louis as are his wife and son.If you still feel your husband is descended from this Karl, please let me know.
