    1. Jacob Schnooer was born in Schleswig-Holstein January 12, 1867 and came to this country when he was sixteen. He worked in a lumber yard at Denison, Iowa before coming to Amherst in 1890. In 1891 he married Betty Kenney, a native of Austria but reared in this country. The couple had eight children. One daughter, Mayme Patterson, died and her three children, aged one, two and three were also reared in the Schnoor home. Mr. Schnoor was a stockholder of the Amherst National Bank and served on the school board. The Schnoors are survived by two daughters, Reba (Brown) and Neta (Plischke), both of Kearney.


    Jacob Schnoor, of Amherst, has been manager of the Gilcrist Lumber Company since its organization and is also the owner of farm property, on which he is engaged in live stock dealing. He was born in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, January 12, 1867, a son of Claus and Cecelia Schnoor, who spent their entire lives in the fatherland.
    Jacob Schnoor was thrown upon his own resources when quite young and was a youth of only sixteen years when he sailed from Germany for the new world, making the voyage alone, since which time he has been dependent entirely upon his own resources. He located first in Crawford county, Iowa, and in 1890 he arrived in Buffalo county, where he found employment with the Gilcrist Lumber Company, which had just established business in Amherst following the founding of the town. Mr. Schnoor has remained manager of the business throughout this entire period, has carefully directed its interests and has developed a trade of substantial and gratifying proportions. He is an enterprising and progressive business man, ready to meet any emergency, and his substantial qualities have made him well liked. In addition to his connection with the lumber trade he is the owner of two hundred and four acres of land in Grant township and he and his sons have engaged in stock farming. Mr. Schnoor has bought and shipped stock for several years and has made that branch of his business an important source of income.
    It was in 1891 that Mr. Schnoor was united in marriage to Miss Betty Kenney who was born in Austria but was reared in this county. They have become the parents of eight children: Arthur, who is married and has homesteaded in Wyoming; and Mayme, Walter, Frank, Theodore, John, Reba and Meta, all at home. In his political views Mr. Schnoor is a republican, well versed on the questions and issues of the day, but is not an office seeker. Fraternally he is connected with the Modern Woodmen of America but his interest and activities center chiefly upon his business, and his concentration, close application and
