I don't know much about my Grandmother Mary Ann Schneider Feldhaus. She was still alive when
her husband Henry died in 1931, but had passed on before I was born eary in 1937. Because her father arrived in the
U.S. from Germany when he was only 21 years old, it's likely that she was born in the U.S. She died in 1934 at 69 years
The picture to the right of Henry Jr. and Mary Ann and the picture below were
given to me by Ann Feldhaus Boulie's daughter Clara who obtained them from Clara Feldhaus.
Back Row: Henry Bernard Jr, Henry Joseph, Cate, Mary Ann

Joe Schneider, Mary Ann, Henry Bernard Jr., Charlie, and Lottie Schneider, Joe's wife. Probaby taken about June
of 1917 when Charlie registered for the draft and the war was well under way having started in 1914. Notice the American
flag. Germany was the aggressor in WWI and this was a German family showing their allegance to their adopted Country.
The war ended in November of 1918.
