We are try to discover the place in Germany from which Andrew Schneider came to the US?
in Genealogy Help by
Do you have any date/approximate date of his birth - or age at arrival?  Any names of parents, siblings, spouses, children?

Andrew Schneider was born in about 1850 and arrived in the US in New York from a ship that left from Breman, Germany.  He supposedly lived in Cooperstown and his son, George, lived in Hamilton.  His grandchildren were Kennth, Andrew, and Carolyn.


I think his wife's name was Elizabeth.  They arrived in the US in 1873.  Really trying to find the place in Germany he came from.  


Much thanks.  What great help.

This isn't your answer - but it might help.  His wife was Elizabeth Neufauer or Neubauer - from the records on George's siblings -  you might have better luck with the handwriting - and she was from Germany as well.  Maybe you can find their marriage record?  It appears that Andrew died sometime between 1886 and 1892 - as last child was born May 1877 and maybe 1892 - when 'Lizzie' is living with all 6 children - but no Andrew.  Doesn't specify widow on that census, but 1900 does.  So another possibility is finding his death record is Ostego, NY in that timeframe - I didn't find it online?  Some records below, links will bring you to those records or images.  Not all would fit here.  Good Luck
