2nd daughter of Johann Adam and Anna Marie
Susanna was born Oct 13, 1767. She married Reinhardt Schnepp before the death of her father in 1789. Records at Old Red Church show a daughter born on Nov 18, 1786 and baptized on Ascencion day 1787. A son, Abraham, was born July 13, 1789 and baptized on Sept. 18, 1789. Census records for 1790 indicate 2 sons and no daughters. Records for this family at St. Johns Lutheran and Reformed Church in Friedensburg start on March 18, 1797 when a daughter, Susanna, was born and baptism was on May 21.
A son Solomon was born April 2, 1804 and baptized on July 1. Reinhard Schnepp and wife were communicants at Summer Hill Reformed services when Catherine and Margaretha were confirmed. Maria Heiser (almost certainly mother of Susanna) was also present.
There is no record in the 1810 census of Pennsylvania for any Schnepp or any variant spelling.
For many years this was all of the information I had. However, Ethel Lawson has discovered that this family along with other Schnepps moved to Greene & Montgomery County's , Ohio. The first records in Ohio are in tax lists. Reinhart (other spellings are Rhinehart, Rinehart, etc.) in Montgomery Co. in 1808 and then in Greene Co. in 1810. The 1820 census for Beaver Twp., Greene Co., Ohio has a Rhinart Sinyp (later spellings become Snypp). The oldest male is over 45 as is the oldest female. There is a male at 10-16 and one at 16-18 and a female at 16-26. There is another Reinhart Schnep listed in Montgomery Co., who is the son of our Reinhar't's brother Leonard. I will use the name Snepp from now on although variations include Snip, Snep, Synep, Synp, etc.
Reinhart was born on Apr 14, 1757, he died in Nov 20, 1841 at age 86. He was the son of Joseph Schnepp and grandson of Lorentz Schnepp who arrived on Phil.,, Pa in 1733. Susanna was born Oct 13, 1767. She died Feb. 9, 1848. She is in the 1830 census with Reinhart 80 years, 3 mos. and 27 days old at her death. Ethyl Lawson has established their children as follows
