Mary Ann Snyder born April 3, 1831, in Westomoreland County, PA (according to what she told her grand children).
She married Benjamin Franklin Young on March 18, 1852, in Allegheny County, PA.
In 1855, they arrived in Henderson Township, Sibley County, MN.When Benjamin was interviewed by the Le Sueur,MN, newspaper, he said he "married the butcher's daughter". I am looking for the name of that butcher :o)
On the 1850 census for Wilkins Township, Allegheny County, PA, there is one John Snyder with wife Katherine.
One "Mary Ann born 1831" is listed as their oldest daughter.
When my maternal grandparents died, my mother inherited some of their things. There was an obituary card for one John Snyder who died on January 17, 1893, at age 85.The funeral notice stated that the funeral would be held at the home of his son, Richard Snyder (born 1844 per the 1850 census),Can anyont tell me if this information all fits into the same puzzle, or if I shoiuld keep looking?
