Hans Karl Schroeder was born in Clasin, Mecklenburg Germany in 1897 to Johann and Wilhelmena Kruger Schroeder. He was the third of thirteen children.

He served in the German Army during one of the deadliest conflicts in human history, World War I. He was shot, but unlike the 15 million who died in WWI, he survived.

After the war, he married Freda Wendt on December 12, 1925. They later migrated to America in August 9, 1926 and settled in Chicago, IL. He went to work for International Harvester Company, retiring from there in 1961 after 35 years of service. He relocated to Elberton, Ga to be near his only child's family. He enjoyed retired life for 25 years and stayed busy gardening and wood working.

Although he had his only child when he was 41 years old, he lived to see his great grandchildren. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was diagnosed with cancer in 1997. Hans Schroeder passed away in his sleep on August 8, 1988. He was 91 years old. He is missed by all who knew him.
