Elisabetha and Leonhard move into 566 Adams around 1867 or 1868. (First appearance of them there is in the 1868 city directory, which means they probably moved in within the year before.) They have all the children they're going to have, including their 17-year-old son, Philipp Leonhard. A few doors down from them, at 576 Adams is the widow fishmonger Regina Erhardt Fassnacht, with her three daughters, including 16-year-old Elizabeth. Elisabetha & Leonhard Schmidt's son, Philipp L. Schmidt, will marry Elizabeth Fassnacht in October 1872, a month before Leonhard, dies. Philipp and Elizabeth will live down the street at 614 Adams.

Elisabetha's daughter, Catherine, marries Frank Schueler (in 1871) and also lives down the street at 689 Genesee where Adams ends into it.
