     a prominent citizen of Jackson township, now serving as president of the board of township trustees, was born in Dinsmore township, this county, three miles northwest of Anna, on February 2, 1861. His parents were Louis and Madolena (Koahl) Schneeberger. The father, a native of Germany, came to this country after his marriage and resided here many years, dying at the age of eighty-one; he was buried at Montra, this township. He was a member of the Lutheran church and a Democrat in politics, though not active as a politician. He was the father of four children who are now living. After the death of his first wife, the mother of our subject, he contracted a second marriage.
     William Schneeberger was a babe of about eighteen months when he lost his mother, and at a comparatively early age he was obliged to make himself useful. He attended school for awhile in Auglaize county, and on arriving at a suitable age, learned the trade of carpenter, which he now follows, also being a contractor for the raising of barns, the moving of buildings and other similar work, in which line of industry he has been very successful. He owns eleven acres in the Montra special school district, with residence located on the Murphy Pike extension. As president of the board of township trustees he is now rendering efficient service in looking after the general interests of the township and is a man in whom his fellow citizens have full confidence. Mr. Schneeberger married Madolena Allenbaugh, who is now deceased. She was the mother of one child, Louis E. Mr. Schneeberger subsequently married Amelia Korn, a daughter of John M. T. Korn, and of this union there is one child, Wilma. Since his second marriage he has been a resident of Montra.
