On the internet at the address below is a list of people who came into Philadelphia in 1729 on the ship "Allen" from Rotterdam; it includes 4 Schneiders (incl one married woman).

Alexander Mack, founder of the present-day Church of the Brethren also came over on this sailing.

Is anybody out there descended from one of these Schneiders (Sniders, Snyders) ???

I think Mattias may be an ancestor of mine -- just speculation.

Has anybody investigated these Schneiders??
