UPDATE: Added a fifth child, Phillip, born in 1875 but have no other information.
Agatha Schneble, Max Laskowski’s wife and grandmother of Mary, came from Dayton, Ohio. Her parents were Fred “Fredolin” John Schneble and Victoria Schwartz. They are buried in St. Patricks Cemetery in Bay City, Michigan.
Fred was born January 1846 in Germany and arrived in the United States shortly after in 1849. The arrival date is based on information from a census and I have not found a passenger list for him yet.
He appears to have lived for most of his life in the Dayton, Ohio area until 1900 when he appears on the census in Gaylord, Michigan. He lived out his remaining years in Gaylord where he passed away on January 7th, 1908.
Fred and Victoria were married in 1870 in Ohio (presumably Dayton area).
Victoria (maiden name Schwartz) was born in Dayton on November 6th, 1848. As mentioned above, she married Fred in 1870 and they moved to Gaylord some time before 1900.
Some time after Fred passed away, Victoria moved to Bay City and appears on the 1910 census with two of her daughters (Cecilia and Julia) living with Max and Agatha at 917 21st street. (Hmm, where I have heard of that address before…)
Her parents appear to be Max and Cecilia, who immigrated from Germany also. I have a request in to the Dayton Public Library for a copy of Cecilia’s obituary who passed away in 1903, if one exists. If this information is good, then Max and Cecilia Schwartz would be Mary’s 2nd great grandparents.
Victoria passed away February 13th, 1912 in Bay City, Michigan.
Fred and Victoria had five children I could find:
Phillip Jacob Schneble, born May 1 1875
Matilda P. Schneble, born September 1878
Agatha Cecilia Schneble, born 15 Sep 1880, died 9 Nov 1962
Cecilia A. Schneble, born Dec 1883
Julia A. Schneble, born Nov 1889
Cora was the sister of Max. My Grandmother. Used to talk to him and called him Uncle Max. Cora was married to Frank Jablonski. Lived at 917 So. Madison in Bay City. Passed in 1964. Have pictures of her and entire family
Great to hear from you. My wife Mary (Laskowski) is your second cousin. She would be interested in talking to you about your family history and maybe comparing and sharing pictures. We still live in Bay City, Michigan. Mary remembers the Jablonski names but that was a while back.
