Laura. I don't have information on your father but am curious about earlier generations. My grandfather was Roman S Schneider (1883-1948), born in Cincinnati. His nickname was Rome. Roman's father was Franklin Schneider (1857-1898). Roman's grandfather's name was Charles Schneider. So when I saw your combination of Charles Rome, it made me wonder if there are any connections. We don't know if Franklin had any siblings which could have resulted in your father's line.
