  • Notes 
    • “Mr Snyder was a lumberman and farmer by occupation and was drafted in the war of 1812, but furnished a substitute.  He ran a sawmill, bought and shipped lumber down the Susquehanna river to market and was a very extensive dealer.  In the early days he freighted from Pittsburg to Philadelphia, owning and running six six-horse teams.  He was an enterprising, broad-minded and capable businessman, widely and favorably known all over Pennsylvania, being rated among the solid businessmen of his day.  In addition to his other lines of business, he ran distilleries.  In the early days he was colonel of the militia, and well known as Colonel Snyder.  He served as a justice of the peace of the German district for forty years, and died in Pennsylvania, a consistent member of the Presbyterian church.  The marriage of Mr and Mrs Snyder was blessed with seven children, namely:  George; Thomas; John; Elizabeth, the mother of our subject; Peter; Sarah; and Adam.” [1]
