Discussion & Documentation: 

Georg Heinrich Schneider, a hunter (Jäger), his wife Katharina, and children (Anna Eva, age 20; Peter, age 15; Maria, age 13; Elisabeth, age 12) are recorded on the 1767 census of Schönchen in Household No. 9 along with orphan Joseph Ebel (age 15) and a note that they relocated to the colony of Ober-Monjou in 1768. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Schneider and Ebel families.

The 1767 census records that Georg Heinrich Schneider came from the German village of Niederbrechen.
