This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ignace Schott was born July 28, 1818 in Dabo, France.  He has sometimes been referred to as Ignace Schott de Dabo or Ignatius Dabo. 

Known primarily as a mural artist and stained glass artisan, it is also known that he was an etcher.  He signed his work, Ignace Schott, or used a mark created by his initials in the shape of an anchor. 

He studied in Paris under Eugene Delacroix, Paul Delaroche and Charles Gleyre.  In the 1850s, he taught and painted in the Saverne area, not far from Dabo.  In the 1860s he married Marie Madeleine Oberle.

Because of political unrest caused by the Franco-Prussian War, Schott moved his young family to Detroit, Michigan in early 1870.  Churches in Michigan, Ohio, and Ontario commissioned works by him.  He also spent much of his time in Detroit in the employ of Friederichs and Staffin, later known as the Detroit Stained Glass Works.  

He trained his two eldest sons, Leon and Theodore, as artists.  After Ignace died his sons ended up in New York City.  In the 1890s they created mural works in many Brooklyn churches under the names of Leon Dabo and Theodore Scott-Dabo. Unlike their father, both would leave mural painting and move on to landscape painting.

Several churches and religious buildings in and around Saverne, France and the Detroit, Michigan area are still decorated with paintings and windows created by Ignace Schott.  He died at his home in Detroit, Michigan on March 3, 1883 and was buried at Mount Elliot Cemetery.
