2 calling cards for C. Schoenheider, Pastor German ME Church, St. Paul Park, Minnesota

Two calling cards for C. Schoenheider, Pastor of the German Methodist Episcopal Church of St. Paul Park, Minnesota.  As you can see, Park is misspelled as Prak.

Brief online research shows that this may be Charles Rudolph Schoenheider, born in Minnesota in 1868, the son of clergyman Karl August Gottleib Neuport and Elizabeth (Veith) Schoenheider, both German immigrants.  Charles married Meta L. Rolfing, who was born in Minnesota in 1882, the daughter of John and Caroline (Niemeyer) Rolfing.  Charles and Meta married sometime after the 1900 Census and had 4 children together.  He died in 1933, and she died in 1956.
