Tombstone Tuesday: Carl Joseph and Christina (Nagel) Schneider
My 2nd-great-grandfather Carl Joseph Schneider was born on 22 Jan 1855 in Erpel, Neuwied, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. (The birthdate on the tombstone is incorrect.) He married Christina Nagel on 31 January 1878 in Bonn, Germany. She was born on 27 Feb 1851 in Kendenich, Rhein-Erft, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. They moved to Remagen, Ahrweiler, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany after their marriage. In 1892, they immigrated to St, Louis, Missouri with their children. Carl died in St. Louis on 5 November 1901. Christina died on 16 January 1934, also in St. Louis. They were buried in Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri, in Section 035, Lot 0160.
