Anthony H. Schindler, a prosperous farmer of Cinque Homme Township, Perry Co., Mo., is a son of Raymond Schindler [see sketch].
He was born in Perry County in 1854, and was liberally educated in the county in both German and English, receiving the former at Snow Bush and the latter at St. Mary’s Seminary.
After finishing his education he began working on a farm, and in 1880 was united in marriage with Mary E. Baggett, a daughter of John and Elizabeth Welch) Baggett, of Kentucky. Mary E. was born in Kentucky in 1855, and came with her parents to Perry County in 1861, where she afterward grew to womanhood and received her education.
After his marriage Mr. Schindler took his wife to the home he had previously prepared for them, one mile southeast of Perryville and remained there three years, when he sold out and purchased where he now resides. His farm comprises 197 acres of the land on which are good improvements.
Mr. Schindler is a practical farmer and a respected citizen. In politics he endorses and supports the principles of the Democratic party, and in religious faith is a Catholic.
The Goodspeed Publishing Company compiled a series of histories of various counties in the U.S. in the late 19th century. The information in the History of Southeast Missouri, published in 1888, was provided by the contemporary residents of Perry County and her neighboring counties. The biographies are a valuable source of genealogical information, despite a few minor inaccuracies. We are glad to present the transcribed biographies here for anyone researching Perry County's history.
