Bill I was pretty sure that Henry belonged to Joseph and Margaret but mention in the Marcus Snapp obit as a half brother was the clincher.Joseph married Margaret Bushong in December 1824, they appear in the records at Friedens Church 1825 and '26 and then Margaret apparently died and Joseph left.Henry H. Snapp appears as age 24 in the home of John Jacobs and Sarah in the Toms Brook area in 1850. He married Anna Maria Miller in Shenandoah Co. 29 Dec. 1852 and by 1860 he is living in Winchester as a retail merchant near Joseph Snapp.I find him in Frederick Co. in 1870 and 1880 but cannot find him in 1900, though his son, Eugene D. Snapp, age 46 is in Staunton, VA. in 1900. John Jacobs appears in the Friedens Church Record in the 1820s and married Sarah Bushong, Oct. 1832- so Henry was living with his aunt and uncle in Shenandoah Co. in 1850. The children of Abraham, as named in the will of Philip Snapp were John, Joseph and Jacob.In Jan. 1815 John Snapp, orphan of Abraham, chose Henry Browning as his guardian (Browning was married to Margaret Snapp, daughter of Philip). In Apr. 1818 Browning bound John Snapp, "age 17, 27 Nov. last" to Samuel Few of Woodstock,to learn the tailor's trade. In 1821 and ad appeared in the "Woodstock Herald" that John Snapp was setting up a tailor shop. John married Catherine Newland, 20 Nov. 1822 and by 1830 was in Augusta Co. VA, by 1850s and 60 in Princeton,Mercer Co (now WV)and by 1880 was living in Bristol Tennessee (and listed as a tailor!). He died there 15 May 1882.Catherine died in 1890. We know this is John son of Abraham because the birthdate on his tombstone is exactly the same given in the court record in 1818. Joseph was the second son, and we have his dates from his tombstone in Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Winchester. Jacob was the third son, b. 24 July 1806 and baptized in the Strasburg Lutheran Church, 1 Oct. 1807, His father was already deceased and he was sponsored at baptism by his grandfather, Philip Snapp.Jacob was appenticed to Samuel Windle to learn cabinet making in February 1824 and he was indeed later a carpenter in Edinburg. So the record is pretty clear- the obituary was wrong about the parentage of Joseph Snapp, but we must remember that these boys were orphaned young and had no close Snapp cousins or aunts and uncles. Philip's other children were daughters. They did apparently know that they were descendants of Lawrence Snapp, a fairly prominent man in Shenandoah County and generation or two before them.
