You are probably a distant cousin through Esther Blackmore Snider who was probably a sister to Caleb Blackmore who was I believe one of my 4th great grandfathers. I believe that Caleb and Cathrina had a daughter named Esther as well.When I was searching through my genealogy info I found a couple of items on Caleb. I will post a link to. http://home.wavecable.com/~mary-paul/calebblackmore.jpghttp://home.wavecable.com/~mary-paul/calebblackmore.jpg http://home.wavecable.com/~mary-paul/calobblackmar.jpghttp://home.wavecable.com/~mary-paul/calobblackmar.jpg I also have a CD on the early German Immigrants that came to America starting around the year 1700. I recall finding many Sinders, etc. listed on Ship manifests that came over through the Netherlands I think...this is from memory. I have since misplaced the CD and do not remember the name of the cd. I do recall it waslaborious to go though since there isn't an index listed on the cd. I will look at the Lyons-Richer genealogy on roots web. I wonder if my 3rd great grandmother Mary Snider was a daughter of John Snider the son of Anthony Snider...but I think the dates are wrong...Maybe Anthony had a brother...but My Mary might be from another Snider clan altogether. m.j.
