Need Help Finding Schneider home in Iowa County

The following biographical said that the Schneiders moved about 1861 to a home east of the "Ervin Schmuecker" residence in Iowa County. I am trying to find the location of their house/land in Iowa County. ( I believe Ervin Schmuecker lived in Iowa County in 1930s. And that this is just a modern reference to the Schneiders home).

The following biographical material is copied From Years to Remember Centennial Book, page 150:

"A.S. Kimm farmed the place bought by his father on the west edge of Watkins for two years before he married Caroline Schneider in 1881, who with her parents migrated from Morgan County, Ohio in about 1861 to a home east of the Ervin Schmuecker residence in Iowa County. (Caroline is a sister of Emma Schneider who married Justus Heinrich Kimm 1.7) "Gus" and Caroline Schneider had two sons - Ira A. and Frank. Frank died with pneumonia on February 14, 1885.

I believe the following is about the Schmuecker reference above.

Hazelle Keir, schoolteacher and artist, was born September 8, 1907 in the town of Nemaha, in Sac County, Iowa. Upon graduation from high school she taught in a rural school for one year and then attended Iowa State University from which she received a bachelor’s degree in 1931. She married Ervin J. Schmuecker in 1932; together they farmed, raised Angus livestock, and reared three children. Schmuecker taught school in Blairstown, Iowa for six years and Norway, Iowa for fourteen years, retiring in 1972. In 1982 Schmuecker attended a writing class. She and several classmates continued the group, naming it “Way with Words,” meeting for breakfast and then critiquing each other’s writing. Schmuecker’s prodigious writing grew from this experience. http://sdrc.lib.uiowa.edu/iwa/findingaids/html/SchmueckerHazelle.htm

Caroline Snyder (Schneider) b 29 Aug 1851 Zanesville, Morgan Co, Ohio dau of Gregory George Schneider and Regina Rothenberg. Married to Augustus Silas Kimm3
