I came across a George and Sophie SCHNITZER that are buried at Voegtly Evangelical Church Cemetery, Pittsburgh, PA. The information given about George SCHNITZER was he was born in 1833 and died 1915.  The information given about Sophie SCHNITZER was she was born in 1858 and died 1914.  I'm thinking that George and Sophie SCHNITZER changed the last name to SCHMETZER.  I have a George and Sophie SCHMETZER in our family tree that had the following children:
  • Frank Schmetzer of Coraopolis, PA;  born:  10/26/1898;  died:  4/1973                                  Frank has four children:  Frank Schmetzer, Jr., Elizabeth Schmetzer, Mary Jane Schmetzer, Harriett Schmetzer, and William Schmetzer.                                   
  • Nicholas Schmetzer of McKees Rocks, Allegheny, PA;  born: 1/14/1893;  died  6/1981;  married Marie Hetzer.  Children of Nicholas and Marie are:  Leo Schmetzer, Ann (Schmetzer) Milles, Frances (Schmetzer) Marlier, Clara (Schmetzer) Estock, Robert Schmetzer, Rose (Schmetzer) Sevick, Nicholas Schmetzer, and Marie (Schmetzer) Eritz.
  • John Schmetzer born:  1885;  died:  1933;  married Mary Elizabeth Bossey.  Children of John and Mary are:  Rita Elizabeth Schmetzer, John A Schmetzer, Marcella Schmetzer, Samuel Schmetzer, Henry Schmetzer, and Lawrence Schmetzer. 
  • Mary Schmetzer
  • George Aloysius Schmetzer of Pittsburgh, PA;  born:  1890 (?);  died:  11/13/??;  married Estella Ethel Watts and Ella Zinn.  Children of George A. and Estella (1st marriage) are:  Leona (Schmetzer) Doughty, Gertrude (Schmetzer) Evanko, Stella (Schmetzer) Ceck, and George Joseph Schmetzer, I.  Children of George A. and  Ella Zinn (2nd marriage) are:  Irene Schmetzer.
  • Andrew Schmetzer - killed at war.  He was shot down in Germany.
