    Eliza SNIDER GARDNER Obituary, Miltonville, March 3, 1908
    Submitted by Timothy S. Harris (Sep 12 1997)

    Mrs. Eliza Gardner, who died in Hamilton on February 18th, and was buried by the side of her husband in our village cemetery on the 20th, was born near Weston, West Virginia, in April 1825.
    In 1827, her father, Daniel Snider, emigrated with his family to Ohio and settled in Miltonville. In 1832, he moved back to his old Virginia home, and remained there until 1847, when he returned to his former Ohio home, and here he spent the remainder of his days which ended in 1863.
    Her mother was a sister of Michael SIMPSON, who for many years was the leading tailor in Middletown.
    For many years after her marriage to Jacob Miller Gardner, this village was their place of residence, and here they reared their family of seven children.
    On the night of September 1, 1866, during a terrible thunder storm, lightning struck their house, just north of town, and killed their oldest son, Neilson, then in his 19th year, as he lay in bed. In 1829, her uncle, John Simpson, was killed by lightning in his home in the village.
    Her husband, who was a member of Co. G 83rd O. V. I. in the Civil War, died in Hamilton in November, 1896 at the age of 71 (?) years.
    Her paternal grandfather, who was born in Germany, was a soldier of the Revolution, and had his first baptism of fire in the battle of Bunker Hill. Her brother, Perry Snider, who lives in Council Grove, Kan. was in the same company with her husband and was identified with the glorious career of his regiment, known as the GREYHOUNDS, from their first battle at the Arkansas post on January 11, 1863 to their gallant and successful assault on Fort Blakeley, near Mobile, on April 9, 1865, the day on which General Lee surrendered at Appomattox. For gallant and meritorious conduct the regiment was honored with a unanimous vote of thanks by the Ohio legislature -- a rare distinction.
    In the cemetery in which she rests, lie her husband, one son, Neilson, one daughter, Clara, her parents, two sisters, Ellen and Emma, two brothers, Worthington and Leroy, one aunt, Mrs. Mary LAW, seven cousins of the Law family and other more distant relatives.
    She is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Martha LONG and Mrs. Melvina BEAUCHAMP of Hamilton; Mrs. Alice WALLACE of California; two sons, Alonzo, of West Middletown, and Edward of Washington, D.C. ; two sisters, Mrs. Margaret VORHIS, of Clermont County, and Mrs. Mary Jane SAULS, of Webb City, Missouri; two brothers, George A. Snider (sic), of Council Grove, Kansas.
    Mrs. Sauls's husband, Thomas E. Sauls, died on June 17, 1907, aged 103 years, 8 months and 30 days.
