Private Ferdinand Schneider was Killed in Action in France during World War I.

Ferdinand was born on 4 November 1887 in St. Louis, Missouri.[1][2] He was the son of John William Schneider and Caroline (Uhlik) Schneider.[3]

Ferdinand's World War I draft card noted that one of his fingers was cut at the first joint.[4] In the 1909 St. Louis city directory, he was listed as a cutter; perhaps he had an accident at work.[5]

He joined the United States Army on September 19, 1917 and was a private in Company I, 354th Infantry. On March 16, 1918 he was transferred to Company G, 38th Infantry 3rd Division, where he was a private and machine gunner.[6]

Ferdinand was killed by shell fire[7] on 15 July 1918 in the Battle of Château-Thierry, at Château-Thierry, Aisne, Picardy, France.[8][9] He was buried in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery on 15 July 1922, the fourth anniversary of his death.[10]
