Personal Information    |    Media    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All
  • Name John William Snyder  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5
    Notes 
    • Some genealogies list Michael Snyder as a child of Jacob and Catherine Houseknecht Snyder, but his birthdate conflicts with John William Snyder (too close in date), and we know from John William Snyder's death certificate that he is a son of Jacob and Catherine. It's possible that one of them was adopted. For now, we do not list Michael Snyder as a child of Jacob and Catherine Houseknecht Snyder.

      [Note of Jeffrey Vitter: The inscription of 96y9m2d, which appears on the Michigan death certificate, seems to be wrong (assuming the birth date listed of 27 Jun 1814 is correct); the correct age at death should be 95y9m2d.]
