Jacob Snyder, my 5th great paternal grandfather, thought (although I have no sources listed) to be the son of Andreas Snyder & Mary Magdalena Linn, was born April 5th 1802 in Snyder County Pa.  He married Elizabeth, as we can see in the 1850 & 1860 census records, but I have no idea what her maiden name was. In the 1860 census, Jacob's occupation is listed as Stone Mason.

Jacob & Elizabeth had at least 10 children - George, David, Susannah, Elizabeth, John, Catharine, Jacob, Sarah, Samuel, & Emmalina.

Samuel's middle name was Hartman.  Several of the boys have H as their middle initial, which makes me wonder if Elizabeth's maiden name might possibly be Hartman?

Both David (My 4th great grandfather) and Jacob married Sholly's.  Davids wife, Susan Sholly, was the daughter of  Jacob & Lydia Sholly.  I am not sure how Phoebe was related. Susannah Snyder married Benjamin Fisher. Elizabeth is buried in Grubbs cemetery, where most of this family is buried, she died in 1875 and appears to have never married. I  I know nothing about John, Catharine, or Sarah beyond them being listed in the census with their parents in 1850.   Sarah is still with her parents in 1860.  Samuel married Susan Heintzelman.

Emmalina, the youngest daughter, married John Sweigart and it is with this family that we find Elizabeth in 1870, after Jacob's death in 1861.  Elizabeth died in 1875, according to her tombstone.

Most of the family is buried in Grubbs cemetery, Mount Pleasant Mills, Snyder County PA.

1823, Abt - Daughter Susanah Snyder is born

Elizabeth, Sarah are possibly Samuels sisters? Emma is NOT Emmalina, as she is married in 1870, and her mother lives with her.  I'm not sure who Emma is.


Just a few lines down on the same census page we find Susan & Emmanual Fisher with 72 year old Lydia Sholly living with them.  Lydia Sholly is the mother in law of David Snyder, son of Jacob & Elizabeth. David & Susan (Sholly) Snyder are alive and well in the 1870 census, so I'm pretty certain this Susan (Snyder) Fisher is the daughter of Jacob & Elizabeth Snyder here. But I'm not sure why David's mother in law is living with his sister...
