I do not know anything about Joseph but I do know a little about Schneider's who live around Franklin county and columbus, ohio. They are decendints of John George Schneider 1824-1884 Saxony Germany and Elnora Barbara Metzger 1824-1902 Bavaria, Germany. They where Married 8 Aug 1850 in Columbus, ohio and move to Gahanna, Ohio. They had five children Edward F,George R, Charles H, Louisa L, and Franklin. That is the source of most Schneider central Ohio.
