I am looking for more information on my great-grandfather Casper Schneider (many spellings of Casper - Kasper, Kaspar and Schneider - Schnider, Schreider). I believe he was born in Russia around 1882 and moved to Chicago, IL (Cook county). Family legend has it that he's buried in Resurrection Cemetery. His wife was Marie Elizabeth Oelberg, and they had 10 children - David Schneider, Emily Schneider, Betty Schneider, Katheran Schneider, Frederick Schneider, Henry Schneider, Marie Schneider, Doris Schneider, Dorothy Schneider, and Wilma Schneider, in addition to multiple children dying as infants (my grandmother Wilma says they reused the names on other children). I would love to talk to anyone that has information or is willing to search records in Chicago. Thank you!
