Glendale Headstone Photographs



JACOB SCHOENAUER

born 1853
died July 4, 1887

Jacob Schoenauer,
was born in Switzerland sometime in 1853. Little has been learned of his early years in Montana Territory or just when he arrived. He had become friends and partnered with John G. Schmidt in the acquisition of the Glendale Brewery. Jacob had sleeping quarters within the structure and it was while he slept on the night of July 4, 1887 that the structure caught fire and burned to the ground, along with it, the life of Jacob Schoenauer. Jacob was not married at the time and no known next of kin were noted in local records.
