Bio

St. Vincent Cemetery "AKA Schnoebelen Cemetery" is a private cemetery. Everyone buried here are related somehow. Many of the family members would hand dig the graves and they also took turns mowing and the upkeep.
Today some of the families still hand dig graves and we have a cemetery clean-up the first Sunday in April and October at 1:00. The second weekend in June we have a Schnoebelen reunion/board meeting in the Riverside St. Mary's church basement. With a meal after Mass at 12:30 and meeting after. This page is not managed by just one person but by the Board members. That way someone is always able to manage the graves. We are all related to the members we have added.

We are all descendents of Joseph & Elizabeth Schnoebelen or married to a descendent
