Father Pierre Aloysius Schumacher

I was recently contacted by a cousin, on my Schumacher side of the family, asking if I knew anything about Pierre “Peter” Aloysius Schumacher.

Pierre “Peter” Aloysius Schumacher was born on 20 Feb 1844 in Eischen, Hobscheid, Luxembourg to Nicolas Schumacher and Maria Katharina Loesch.

He, along with his parents and siblings immigrated to the United States in 1856 and settled in Belgium, Ozaukee County, Wisconsin.


Peter was ordained a Priest in the Catholic Church on 18 Dec 1869 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.

I’ve searched for a connection to our shared Schumacher family and there is none that can be found.
