Jacob Schneider, a German immigrant, purchased a large tract of land in 1853 from Alex Ingham. Jacob, a piano manufacturer, lived with his wife Christina (Graef) in a large home at the southeast corner of Denison Ave. and West 23rd St. This corner property (sublots 113 & 114 in the Jacob Schneider Allotment) later became the site of an apartment complex.
In the mid-1880's when he in his 70's, he began disposing of his holdings by selling off individual lots. Some were sold to his children: Mary Elizabeth (a spinster), Mary A. (wife of Charles Kroehle), Julia C. (wife of Edmund Nicolaus), and Herbert. Only Mary Elizabeth remained in the neighborhood until her death in 1915. Although an exact date of death has not been found for Jacob, he probably died around 1898 or 1899. His signature appears on a deed in 1898 but his wife's 1899 obituary refers to her as a "relict" (widow).
