Where were William and Hattie married? That is the best place to start. Try to find other Schindlers married in the same church or courthouse. Look for Schindlers living in the same county during the census before their wedding date. Even if those Schindlers end up not being related to her, the information you have on them will help you narrow in on her.

From familysearch.org.  Hattie Schindler in 1910 is living in Galveston with parents Emile and Freda.  In 1920 she is living in Galveston with grandfather George Richnow.  So this may possibly mean that Freda Schindler, mother of Hattie, was born a Richnow.

Or is this a different Hattie?
