    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 (Glossbrener_ Rasmussen:
    ...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
