Heather,
Did a quick search of the Civil War Soldiers & Sailors site (www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/) and there were 4 Jeremiah Snyders and 26 John Chapmans that served in Ohio units. You will need more info to find out if they belonged to a certain GAR. If you know the unit, try to find out if there is a local re-enactment group doing that unit. They sometimes know the history of some of the unit members. Also, you could do a "Google" search on GAR to see what is available. You might also try the Portage Co. Historical Society (Betty Oneil is very helpful). They may have something on local GAR halls.
Good Hunting,
Ralph McCollum - former Civil War re-enactor
