Possible Schneider variant? Schneyer

My Great Great Grandfather was Harry Albert Schneyer and I'm wondering if this is a possible variant of the surname Schneider. Harry was born in Ohio in 1881, his father was Ernest Schneyer born in Ohio in 1852. And his father (Harry's grandfather) was an immigrant from Saxony named John Schneyer (born 1814 in Germany), married to Elisabeth Roth of Switzerland (born 1821).

Does this sound familiar to anyone? At the very least Schneyer is a very uncommon surname as I've found almost no information on it, I haven't even found a surname message board on here for it. Because of its rarity, I wonder if it was a name changed upon immigration for one reason or another. Please let me know if anyone has any info on this.
