Mystery Monda - George Schneitzer
I have another mystery man in the album I received from Margie Wasson. This fine looking fellow was George Schneitzer. He lived in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus had a large population in an area which became known as German Village. He was the godfather of George Joseph Geiszler (1886-1974). George Joseph was the son of Henry Joseph Geiszler who married Magdalena Hoppe 3 Jul 1882. The couple married at Zion German Methodist Episcopal, so it's possible that the godfather ceremony was done at this church.
These are all the facts I have to go one. One day I'd love to know why Henry and Margie chose George Schneitzer to be their son's Godfather and potential namesake.
