Joseph M Snyder

I'm looking for information on the first wife and family of Joseph M Snyder. He married a woman listed in the Michigan DiBean marriage index as Charity Snyder in 1857. Joseph enlisted for the Civil War in 1861, returned in 1866 and walked away from his wife anf two children Phillip and Libbie. Phillip was born in Oct 1859 and Libbie around 1861. I have Charity and the two children in the 1870 & 1880 census, but cant find them in 1860 before he left. Jospeh and Charity were married in Clarence Twp, Calhoun, MI, but it appears they lived several places between there and Branch County, MI and St. Joseph COunty, MI.

I'm looking for the families of the children. I know in 1890 Phillip applied for a pension on his fathers Civil War Service, but it was denied. They thought he was dead and he hadn't died yet. Charity aparently remarried (though never divorced) to a Mr. Doolittle in 1883.

Also trying to determine is Charity WAS also a Snyder or what her maiden name was.
