In our "family tree" info that has been in the family for many years, we show that JOHN SNIDER was born in Germany. He married CATHERINE. Their children were:

HENRY Snider, b June 13, 1774, Germany; d April 6, 1832, Fayette Co OH.

HENRY married ELIZABETH HESSER, daughter of Andrew Hesser and Ann Miller, she was born June 3, 1771 in Germany, and died October 14, 1864 in Fayette County Ohio. In 1774 she came to America with her father. Children of Henry Snider and Elizabeth Hesser are:
PETER, born October 8, 1804, Virginia; d. Sept 21, 1889, Fayette Co OH. married Eleanor Ann Orr
JOHN married Delilah Beard
HANNA married Joseph Legore
NANCY married Samuel Orr
ELIZA married John Orr
WILLIAM married Tamar Young
CATHERINE died 1876, Fayette Co OH, married (1) Jacob Caylor; m (2) Robert Burnett, Jr.

Does your information agree with mine? Do you have additional information on these or prior generations?

The Orrs and Burnetts are main lines in our "tree" we only have Sniders for a couple generations. However, I wonder if you have any information of the German Sniders, perhaps more about John and Catherine?
