Biography of Gerrie Schneider

Tracing my family history has fascinated me for the better part of thirty years...the stories and histories of my ancestors as I track them through the timeline of history.



Schneider: My Schneider's immigrated to America from Rheinzabern, Germany in 1882 and settled in Marathon Co., Wisconsin. Johan and Philipina Schneider had five children; only one remained in Wisconsin. The rest of the kids came west and settled in the Pacific Northwest.
Flynn: William Flynn came from Woodford, co. Galway, Ireland to Ontario, Canada sometime after April 1853. From his letter of reference, we know that he was the son of the protestant church sextant. William was a cabinet maker by trade and lived in Ontario, Canada. His father's name was William Flynn and his mother was Eliza Burke. William eventually headed south to Michigan where he married his second wife, Ruth Lum; they moved with their children through Canada, and onto Vancouver, BC and finally settling in Seattle, Washington.
Kettering: Johann Jacob Kettenring immigrated with his family from Germany to American around the mid-1700s to Dauphin Co., Pennsylvania. They must have come over with other Kettenring families or others may have followed around the same time because there was another Johann Jacob Kettenring who was born about the same time. Both families went to Montgomery Co., Virginia before the Revolution.
Halstead and Lum: In 1596 Susan Whitley of Halifax Parish, Yorkshire, England married Abraham Halstead. Abraham Halstead is my father's ancestor. After Abraham died in 1612, Susan remarried John Lum. My mother's family descends through John Lum. Centuries later my parents met in Seattle, Washington in 1943.

American Revolution Ancestors

  • Matthew D. Coe: Matthew Coe enlisted in the Second Regiment of the Orange Co., New York Militia during the Revolutionary War as an enlisted soldier. In 1787 he was promoted to the rank of ensign and he was again promoted in 1790 to the rank of lieutenant. Matthew served as a second lieutenant during the War of 1812.
  • Heinrich Bartholomew, Sr.: On Sept. 14, 1777, the Supreme Executive Council of the Continental Congress met and issued orders for the removal of important documents and money from Philadelphia before the British arrival in the city. Henry and a neighbor, John Snyder, were to drive a wagon with money and papers from the Public Loan Office in Philadelphia to Easton, Pennsylvania for safekeeping. Also, appointed to convey these important items were Mr. Lowden and Mr. Hope, to guard the money and papers; and two others to guard the wagon. In 1778, Henry and his neighbor, again, used their wagon to aid the cause, this time carrying ammunition and valuables from Pittstown, New Jersey to Easton, Pennsylvania.

U.S. Civil War Ancestors

  • John D. Coe was born in 1813 in New Jersey. He moved his family across the country from upper New York state in the early 1850s and arrived in Iowa in 1856. John volunteered in the 35th Iowa Volunteer Infantry Regiment when a country divided went to war. He wasn't a young man any longer and his health suffered. In the humidity and damp at Vicksburg, John's already poor health worsened and he was re-assigned to the army hospital in Illinois. By the summer of 1863 he was sent home on furlough to recuperate, but he never did. He died of the illness he contracted while fighting for his union. (See a transcribed copy of John's Civil War Widow's Pension file Caroline Ackerson.)
Also serving from Iowa and dying of illness contracted during the war, was John Coe's son, William Harrison Coe.
  • William Henry Lum was born in 1825 in New York. He moved his family from upstate New York, where he was born, to Michigan around 1853. William settled in Locke Twp. in Ingham Co., Michigan and worked as a mason while he farmed. On December 6, 1861 he answered the call to arms and enlisted in the 14th Inf Reg of Michigan Volunteers in the U.S. Civil War. In his later years, William applied for a veterans pension because of his rheumatism that he believed he developed during the adverse climate conditions at the siege of Vicksburg.
  • Robert Dunbar was born and raised in Pennsylvania. On 16 October 1862 he enrolled in the 179th Inf. Reg. Pennsylvania Volunteers as a private. During the nine months he served his country in the U.S. Civil War, he was at Newport News, Washington, D.C., at White House Landing, Virginia sleeping on the ground and where he took sick and at Yorktown. Robert mustered out of the army on 27 July 1863
  • Jasper A. Stewart, born in 1847 in Georgia, moved to Mississippi with his family when he was young. He fought for the Confederate cause in the War of Northern Aggression.
  • Whitfield Clifford Thrailkill was a native of Alabama. He purchased land in Mississippi and moved there prior to the U.S. Civil War. Clifford Thrailkill was on his way to join his regiment in the early morning hours of October 19, 1862. Clifford was headed to meet up with his regiment, Mississippi Infantry, Kings State Troops, Co. H, 1, which had just reformed. He, like many other Confederate soldiers were aboard a train outside of Duckhill, Mississippi; they were headed to or from their regiments. The southbound train had just left the Duckhill station and was slowly building up speed and the northbound train speeding to its next destination, the trains collided. The train was over-crowded; many of the Confederate soldiers were sitting on platforms between coach cars. There were high casualties, one of the deaths that early morning was Clifford Thrailkill. His body was recognized by a local resident and taken away for burial. Tragedy at Duck Hill Station, Collision of the James Brown & the A.M. West, by Norman L. Ezell)

My first Lum ancestor, John Lum came to Connecticut from Yorkshire, England around the mid 1600s. The family eventually settled in Derby, CT until my ancestor, Abel Lum headed to New York. His son, William Henry Lum was born and married in Cayuga Co., NY, but migrated to Michigan. His daughter and my g-grandmother, Ruth left Michigan with her husband and family in the early 1900s and settled in Seattle, WA.

Researching Grudzodolski (phonetic spelling) and Wishnenski surnames.
My g-grandparents came from Poland. They changed their name to Fisher when they arrived in the U.S., but my g-grandmother asked on her deathbed to be buried under the name of "Grudzodolski ". Since her children only knew spoken Polish, this is the name on her death certificate, the actual spelling of the family name is yet to be determined.

Hi Gerrie,

I note you are on the trusted list for Thomas Butterfield-334. He is waiting to be merged. Will you please take a moment to check out the profiles, as I believe it is appropriate that they be merged. Thank you. I will clean up the merge as I have been working on the Wood/Mitchell/Butterfield profiles. See G2G here: Thank you.

Gerrie, thanks for the response. The entire profile is wrong and will have to be changed. I used some Find A Grave data that had two different people with the same bio info who were buried in two different cemeteries! I finally found the researcher who posted the memorials and it will be corrected. I will then try to redo the profiles with correct data. I am very new to this so it might take me several stabs to get it right. Thanks Again.
