On page 305 of SWINT, there's a copy of a photo of William SNIDER, his wife Lavinia E. SWINT and their family (4 children shown).It probably was taken before the last child was born.
Here is Lavinia's direct line, going back in time:
PARENTS:Joseph SWINT & Martha Ann Katherine HOOD GRANDPARENTS:Rev. Frederic SWINT & Rebecca HARRIS (d/o Edward) GREAT GRANDPARENTS:John SWINT &Elizabeth CARTLEDGE (Elizabeth's surname has not been 100% proven but many researchers accept her as John's wife.
Rev. Frederic & Rebecca were my 3rd great grandparents through their son Samuel SWINT; John & Elizabeth were my 4th great grandparents through Frederic.
