I am a little confused. If they lived in Illinois why are you putting your query in Indiana? I did find a Samuel Snider in Vermilion, Il in 1850. There were none in Indiana in 1850.

No John B is listed in Indiana in 1860 nor in Illinois.
No Samuel listed in either place in 1860.
This is the only John B I found in the Indiana death records.
