(son of AUGUST F.T. and JOHANNA A.C. SCHELL)
The headstone is nearly unreadable due to deterioration. However, Scharf lists a George Schull with the above birth and death dates. There is some confusion with the SCHELL and SCHULL surnames. It is not clear if there was both a GEORGE SCHELL and a GEORGE SCHULL. Thus, these dates may not be correct.
SCHELL, JOHANNA A.C.
(wife of AUGUST F.T. SCHELL)

Some of this information was taken from Scharf’s list of those buried in Percy Cemetery.

SCHNEIDER, ANNA MARIA KOCH

“The August Schneider and Anna Maria Schneider listed are man and wife and they are my great-great-grandparents. They are the parents of Elizabeth who married August Domdera. They were born in Iba, Germany. They had eight children, of whom only three survived. All were born in Germany. Their oldest son, Conrad, came to America in 1854 and he settled in Frostburg. As I said before, Elizabeth came in 1856, probably encouraged by her brother. I don’t know when the parents came with their younger son, Heinrich (or Henry) but they are living in Frostburg by the time of the 1860 Census. August Schneider also had the name of Justus. That is how he is listed in the church books of Iba and also on the 1870 Census and in his obituary in the Frostburg Mining Journal. He was rejected by the draft while in Germany in 1828 because he was ‘too small.’ He filed his ‘declaration of intention’ to become a citizen of the U.S. on Nov. 1, 1861. According to the records in Germany he was born July 23, 1810 ... and Anna Maria (whose maiden name was KOCH) was born Jan 24, 1810... Their son Conrad was a saloon keeper in Frostburg and he married a Lauretta ___? (rumored to be a Domdera). They had one daughter, Agatha Rose, who married Arthur J. Irwin (these are the parents of Arthur Irwin who had the gravestone business in Frostburg until recently). Their other son, Henry, married Anna Eichorn and in 1910 he owned a shoe store in Frostburg. They had 10 children, of whom 8 were living on the 1900 Census. Their names were Annie, John, Oscar, Conrad, Minnie, Jerry, Lavin and Melvin.” [letter from Mary M. Carrera, Reseda, CA, 11-23-1986].
