Notes for John Snyder:
Information on the Snyder family can be found in Volume 1 of Doris Rooney's "The Dockstader Family" (1983) as well as in Herbert A and EZrma B Schraeder's "Three Generations of the Mohawk Valley Families Countryman Snyder Alter" (1995), available in Fonda.A discussion of the early Snyder family can also be found in Hardin and Willard's History of Herkimer County (1893) p227-8.
He was a pioneer of the town of Minden, and appears in the Canajoharie census in 1790 (not in that area that later became the town of Stark.)The only evidence that he may have resided in Stark is contained in a Mar 10 1804 deed of 97 acres in Lot 3 in L'Hommedieu's Patent (just north of the Otsquago settlement.)However, he must have lived there only briefly, for in the 1810 census he lived two doors away from John Snyder, Jr. in a section of Minden remote from the part later forming Stark.He was a corporal in the Revolution and served at the Battle of Oriskany (DAR Patriot Index).
