Birth information taken from bible entries in the hand of Miss Emma SPEELMAN, written July 1886 in Van Wert, Ohio for Jacob G. Snyder of Benton, Ohio.

     

      From Wayne and Holmes County History, p. 794.  Adam H. Snyder is a son of George Snyder, Jr., and grandson of George Snyder, Sr., who was born in Penn. March 7, 1778, and came to Holmes County, Ohio in 1816, where he purchased 160 acres of timber land in Salt Creek Township, Holmes County, for $7 per acre, and the 190 acres now included in the farm of Adam H. for $15 per acre, and moved his family on the first farm in the spring of 1817.  He died April 15, 1861.  His wife, Margaret Miller of Westmoreland County, Penn., died January 30, 1846.  He reared a family of ten children:  Jacob, Annie, Isaac, George, Jr., Elizabeth, Catherine, James H., Peter M., Susan and Nancy.  He had two brothers, soldiers in the War of 1812.  He gave each of his children a home before his death; in politics he was a supporter of the democratic party, and filled various township offices; was also a member of the Lutheran Church.  His children who are living are James H., in Paint Township; Peter M., in Salt Creek Township, Susan, widow of Michael FRY, in Paint Township, and Nancy, wife of Hezekiah LEEPER, in Iowa.

     

      From Biographical Record of Holmes County, 1889.  James H. Snyder was born in Westmoreland County, Penn., April 11, 1817.  His father, George Snyder, was born in the State of Maryland, and was of German descent.  He took up a preemption right (the right to purchase something before others/the right to purchase public land that is granted to one who has settled on that land) in Westmoreland County, Penn., and later married Miss Margaret Miller, a native of that county.  On May 14, 1817, they moved to Ohio and purchased a farm in what is now Salt Creek Township, in Holmes County, where he and his wife died.  Mr. Snyder was a supporter of the Democratic party and a prominent member of the Lutheran Church.  Those of his children who are still living are James H.; Peter M., of Salt Creek Township; Susanna, widow of Michael Frey, of Paint Township; and Nancy Leeper, of Iowa.

     

      "Know Your County's History" column by W.E. Farver in The Holmes County Farmer-Hub Newspaper:  Abraham and Susan Geeting are named as settlers in 1810.  Jacob Fry (married Eve Geeting) is named as a settler in 1811, as having built the first mill in Salt Creek Twp. on Martin's Creek in 1832.  In 1812, there were Henry Drushel and James Alexander.  Evidently brothers or father and sons, John, Thomas and Samuel Hays, in 1813.  In 1815, there were Richard Woodrow, Robert Knox, James Snyder; also Jacob, Daniel, George, Jonathan, Michael and David Snyder, apparently all of one family relationship, referring to the Snyders.  Of these last six named, 3, Jonathan, Daniel and Jacob lived together near the present Fryburg Church location.  Dan Snyder is said to have killed the last black bear that was taken in Salt Creek twp.  No date is attached to the story; undoubtedly the Snyders had some cows; no fences in those pioineer days, seems as if the cows had strayed away perhaps farther than usual; anyway brother Jonathan, while looking for them, tracked them to a swamp on a tract owned by Samuel Richards (owned in 1907); it must have been on lot 14, for the cows had strayed about a mile.  By the swamp Jonathan somehow treed a black bear, on a large swamp oak.  He managed to get word back to Daniel to bring his gun, which he hurriedly did.  Then the two brothers got into an argument about which one should shoot the bear.  Daniel succeeded in eluding Jonathan, for Daniel shot it.  Together they carried the animal home, the distance of nearly one mile.

Hope  The earliest church record in Holmes County Deed Record Books is for "Presbyterian Lutheran Good Hope Congregation in Salt Creek, Wayne County, State of Ohio."  Before the creation of Holmes County in 1824 Salt Creek was divided by the Greenville Indian Treaty Line with Wayne County (Wooster as County seat) on the north, and Coshocton County (Coshocton as County seat) on the South.  The line intersects Fryburg, formerly called Good Hope.  The site originally was part of "congress land" given or granted to one Daniel Snyder in 1819.  It came permanently into the possession of Jacob Snyder in 1823.  But he gave it to the trustees of the Union church for $20.  The trustees in the deed are William BELL, George Snyder and Jonathan Snyder.  Frank Snyder is also an early trustee in other records.  Both parties to the deed, Snyder and trustees list themselves as from Salt Creek Township, Wayne County, State of Ohio.

He died June 13, 1848 and is buried with his wife Elizabeth Schneider at the Glick (Brick) Cemetery, near Lithopolis, Ohio. He is age 67 years 5m and 6dys, which when calculated makes his birthday February 17, 1781. This is the date found in other records for his birth.

     
     
Records from Blanche (Snyder) Pederozolli:  Adam and his wife Elizabeth Snyder (dau. of Jacob & Ann Snyder; b. 11/12/1785; d. 5/15/1871) are both buried in Glick (Brick) Cemetery, Lithopolis, Ohio, they had nine children.  Adam died July 13, 1848 in Bloom Twp, Fairfield, Co., Ohio. Obviously there is a discrepancy here in the month that needs to be checked. No mention of Adam's wife, Ann Sparks, is mentioned in Blanche's records.

      Letter to Susanna about her mother's death from her brother William Snyder, Towanda, Kansas, 18 Feb 1885. 

Dear Sister, Your last letter was received in due time and I will proceed to answer it now.  You request a detailed account of Mother's death and burial which I will attempt to give you as near as I can.  I might say, Mother's health began to decline as she came here, and I think as soon as she was taken away from Ohio.  Homesickness has a wonderful influence over the system.  Her gradual decline was, however, not very perceptible until during the last three weeks prior to her death, but during this time I was able to see and make a change every day for the worse.  Her mind began to fail, and most of the time was delirious.  She did not know where she was, and was unable to recognize any of us; could not even identify herself.  She imagined all the time that she had a little child in bed with her, and gave herself much uneasiness about it.  Her appetitie remained good until a few days before she died, but as soon as it failed I knew she would not live long.  She was all the time able to get out of bed alone.  In the evening of the last day, about 10 o'clock, my wife assisted her out of bed.  She sat on the rocking chair until her bed was fixed.  We had no idea she would die that night but my wife and Irving sat up until midnight at which time I got up to relieve them, and observing her so quiet we went to the bed and found her dead.  She must have died suddenly, and without a struggle. I started out immediately and brought in some of the neighbors.  This was on Friday night.  On Sunday, at about one o'clock, we started to the grave yard at Towanda three miles distant.  The weather was extremely cold, and most people had not heard of her death, but the attendance was quite large.  It was her request to be buried here, and she had also told us to dress her in a shroud and we did so, in white flannel.  The coffin was a very nice one, cost $25.  The funeral expenses in all was about $35.  I paid six dollars for the lot she is buried on and have a deed for it, and will see that it is kept in decent order.  The weather was so cold we had no funeral sermon preached.  I have not succeeded yet in getting anything from Alf Snyder, he makes all kinds of excuses.  I may get enough to pay funeral expenses.  Emmesseno are very hard up.  They have built a small house in Millersburg east side on the hill.  I am told he does not drink so much now, too poor to buy it.  John's address is Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa.  Did you hear that old Isaac Snyder was dead?  I had a letter from the girls of lately.  Adda will write some to enlace with this.  We are all well.  Yours, William Snyder
