Based on limited research I do find the family of Philipp & Katharina SCHNEIDER living in St. Louis, Missouri along with 5 children during the 1880 census. Philipp is listed as 43 years of age, born in Bavaria, a Machinist by trade and his wife Katharina age 42, born in Wurtenberg. The family included John age 17 born in MA, August age 12 born in NY, George age 10 also born in NY, Katy age 8 born in NY, and Annie age 6 also NY born.
I also find the California Death index includes George P. SCHNEIDER b. 18 Aug 1898 in MO, died in Los Angeles, CA 30 June 1975. George's wife Rita Mary CALLAHAN SCHNEIDER b. 17 Jan 1904 in MO, died 5 Nov 1991 in Orange Co., CA. Edwin William SCHNEIDER b. 13 Oct 1899 in MO, died 3 Jan 1983 at Los Angeles and his wife Dorothy Faye GAMBLE SCHNEIDER b. 4 Jan 1913 in CA, died 22 Oct 1997 in Los Angeles, CA.
I find two of George A. and Kath HOFFMANN's children in the California death index, Clement J. SCHNEIDER b. 4 Feb 1907 in MO, died 1 Nov 1991 in Los Angeles and Angela C. SCHNEIDER b. 2 Aug 1910 in MO, died 18 May 1972 in Los Angeles. I was hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful old treasure could be returned to its rightful place with family, however, I was not successful so I have passed the bible along to the St. Louis Genealogical Society in hopes that they might have better luck tracing the family.
If you are a member of this family or know someone who might be, please contact them.
