      Death of Mrs. Levi Swarts.

      Mrs. Levi Swarts died at her home in Springwater Saturday, Aug. 10th, at 10 a. m. after a long illness. Mrs. Swarts was a daughter of the late Jacob Snyder and was born in the town Of Groveland near what is now Grovelaud Station, Sept. 20, 1825. At the ago of twelve years she removed with her parents to Pennsylvania where she remained until grown to women-hood. In 1846 she returned to Livingston county making her home with a married sister until her marriage to Levi Swarts in 1857, when she removed with him to the farm in Springwater where she died. By nature kind and sympathetic, Mrs. Swarts won the love and respect of all, and although for many years a sufferer from an incurable form of cancer, yet her sufferings were ever borne without complaint and with a firm trust in God. She leaves two children, Jacob 0. Swarts of Springwater and Mrs. W. H. Sterner of Sparta to mourn the loss of Gods best earthly gift, a tender loving mother. Monday, Aug. 12th, at Carney Hollow, Rev. Wm. Thomson officiating and she was laid to rest by the side of her husband and infant son in the cemetery at the Kiehle church.

    • 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.
