The body of Carl Schneider from Milwaukee, a tailor from Luxemburg, was found near J. Heilberg's farm, Iowa Township on Febr. 3. Since early January he was frozen by the cold and covered with snow. He was to be 45 years old and wore the insignia of the 37th Prussian Regiment on his arm. (1864)
This is one of over 1000 Schneider entries rescued from obscurity through the ongoing independent project called "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
