I am looking for info on my great-grandfather, Claude Thomas Snider and his predecessors. Claude was born on 1 Jul 1896 in Idaho to Lillie Maude Moxey Snyder. I don't have his father's name. I know that in the 1900 census Lillie, Claude, and his brother Dudley were living with her parents and Lillie was listed as widowed. I am wanting to know Claude's father's name and anything farther back. Claude was a wagoneer in WWI and was said to had changed his name from Snyder to Snider to avoid being associated with the Germans. Claude died about 1944 in California. He was married to Ida Elizabeth Hiatt and had two daughters with her, Patsy and Claudine. Ida remarried to Ivan McMurphy.
