Lyons/Snedeker connection // Indiana

There appears to be another Lyons/Snedaker connection which I haven't fully sorted out. But it appears probable that siblings Georgia and William Lyons/Lines married into the Snedeker/Snedaker/Sneadaker family.

I located this in some old notes: "Georgia Ann Lyons married 1st James Thomas 2nd Gilbert Sneadaker" I also noticed that Gilbert Snedeker is found living with Lewis and Mabel Lines in 1930 and is listed as "Father-in-law". (see below)

Here's my working theory:

*Gilbert and Sina Ellen Snedeker were both children of John Arnold SNEDEKER and Mary BERRY.

*Georgia Ann and William Henry LYONS were both children of William Hiram LYONS and Julia Ann CULVER.

*Gilbert Snedeker (b.1850) married2 Georgia Ann (Lyons) Thomas (b.1845).

*Sina Ellen Snedeker (b.1863) married William Henry Lyons (b.1852) 9 MAY 1878 in Indiana.

*Georgia Ann Lyons (b.1845) married1 James Thomas; married2 Gilbert Snedeker (b.1850).

*William Henry Lyons (b.1852) married Sina Ellen Snedeker (b.1863) 9 MAY 1878 in Indiana.

Next generation:
*Lewis Ellsworth LINES (b.1865) married his step-sister, Mabel Mary (SNEDEKER) Shelhorn (b.1881).

*Lewis was the son of Georgia Ann (Lyons) Thomas and Mabel was the daughter of Gilbert Snedeker.

Georgia Ann LYONS, son of William Hiram LYONS and Julia Ann CULVER, was born 16 AUG 1845 in Decatur Co., Indiana, and died 1929. She married1 James THOMAS. She married2 Gilbert SNEDEKER.

Child of Georgia Ann LYONS and James THOMAS is:
i. Lewis Ellsworth LINES was born 17 MAR 1865 in New Point, Decatur Co., Indiana, and died 21 NOV 1946 in Decatur Co., Indiana. He married Antionette TRIMBLE 19 MAY 1891 in Decatur Co., Indiana. He married Mabel Mary (SNEDEKER) Shelhorn 23 JUN 1898 in Decatur Co., Indiana. She was born 27 SEP 1881 in Decatur Co., Indiana.

Gilbert Snedeker is listed as Father-in-law in 1930 census:

William Henry LYONS, son of William Hiram LYONS and Julia Ann CULVER, was born 18 JAN 1852 in Bloomfield, Davis Co., Iowa. He married Sina Ellen SNEDAKER 9 MAY 1878 in Indiana, daughter of John SNEDAKER. She was born 6 FEB 1863 in Newpoint, Indiana.

Children of William Henry LYONS and Sina Ellen SNEDAKER are:
i. Charles W LYONS was born MAR 1880.
ii. Pearl M LYONS was born JAN 1882.
iii. William LYONS was born AUG 1883 in Indiana.
iv. Clarence LYONS was born OCT 1886.
v. Bertie C LYONS was born ABT 1887.
vi. Mertle M LYONS was born NOV 1892 in Indiana.
vii. Miriam Kathryn LYONS was born 22 FEB 1906 in Rush Co., Indiana. She married MCGINNIS.

My interest in these allied family connections is through the "LYONS" line.

"William Hiram Lyons/Lines (1815-) Indiana"
