Second of eight children of Johannes and Katharina Elisabetha Angst Schneider, she was born in Morschheim, Pfalz, Bayern and married Valentin Eschenfelder there in 1845. They had two sons whose names are not known.
She emigrated with husband, sons and her widowed mother's family to New York on the Prince Albert, arriving on Dec. 1, 1850. Shortly, her husband and sons succumbed to the Cholera Epidemic which swept the German immigrant population. They were buried in New York.
Widow Louisa married Heinrich Schultze in 1852 in Chicago. With the help of her older sister, Anna Margaretha, and brother John, she and her family had moved to the Chicago area where her husband worked and she bore five children, several of whom died very young.
She died, a beloved mother, in her home. Her entire family was deeply committed to the German Evangelical Association. A brother, several cousins, nephews and one son became ordained ministers.
