Clement paid $1200.00 recorded in Deed Book 42 to Clemens Vonnegut Jr. from George Peeples and
Catherine E. Peeples and the home was built about 1889/1890.
One says Henry Schnaull was owner of the property but all plat maps show that C. or Clements Vonnegut as the owner
The only thread of truth in this is this statement:
The Schnull daughters - were established on the east side of the lake by their - father, as quoted by "Catey" Catherine Matilda
...a relative, great-grandfather, Henry Schnull had established his three daughters - Emma, Nannie, and Julia, in cottages on the
East Shore which became famous for their tennis court about 1904. One of these, called "Hilarity Hill", is where eleven little
Vonnegut - Mueller - Schnull cousins grew-up
Emma Schnull married Clemens Vonnegut
Nanette Schnull married Bernard Vonnegut
Julia W. Schnull married George J. Mueller
|1898 - Shows C. Vonnegut as owner of this parcel and that George Peoples still
owning considerable acreage and one lake lot in between P. O. Vonnegut and C. Vonnegut
