Date: Mon, 14 Oct 2002 22:37:43 EDT

I wanted to post on the Ridnour website, but it seems the space
is not available.

Elizabeth Snyder Ridnour Gallentine was in Frederick County Maryland abt
1772. If anyone knows anything about her siblings and parents or
others....please contact me. Kimberly Williams

Jacob Snider/Snyder/Schneider born June 1, 1725 in Grunwetterspach, duchy of
Wuerttemberg Germany. He came to America in 1751. In 1757 he married Maria
Magdalena Bissinger who was born March 15, 1731 in Ensweingen Wuertemberg
Germany, daughter of Michael and Anna Maria Bissinger . ( could be Michel
Beisinger who married Anna Maria Mayer May 9, 1725 in Evangelisch
Enzweihingen Neckarkreis Wuerttemberg Germany and had a daughter named Maria
Magdalena Bissinger who was christened March 26, 1731 at the same place her
parents married.

Jacob Snider's wife Maria Magdalena Bissinger came to America when she was 21
years old. ( abt 1750 ) Migrated to Frederick County, Maryland before 1773.
Jacob Snider died September 27, 1778 in Frederick County, Maryland . He was
buried September 29, 1778 at Graceham churchyard . Maria Magdalena
(Bissinger) Snider died February 13, 1810, and was buried February 15, 1810.

Jacob Snider died without a will. Michael Snider was administrator of the
probate records dated March 14, 1780 in Frederick County, Maryland. Michael
may be a brother of Jacob. If Maria Magdelina Snider did not remarry, she
may be listed in the 1790- 1800 census. It is also possible that she lived
with one of her children in the 1790 - 1800 census. Maria's widowed daughter
Christiana Collendine had a woman born prior to 1755 living in Emmitsburg
with her and her two young children. Christiana most likely was pregnant with
her son Samuel Gallatin when the 1800 census was taken.

Jacob and Maria Magdalena (Bissinger) Snider had the following 12 children.

1.John Snider born between 1757 and 1764

Maryland newspaper MCM; Peter Burkhart, Hagerstown, offers reward for
apprentice lad named Abraham Snyder, he ran away last spring and was in
Virginia till I removed from Owing's Creek, to this town.

Church is 2 miles east of Thurmont, which is about a mile from Apples
Lutheran Church )

8. Christiana Snider born between 1757 and 1768 married Unknown Gallentine
Christena Collendine was living in Emmitsburg Maryland in 1800. ( Some
researchers have Christina as the spouse of Abraham Gallatin born 1762 that
served in the war of 1812 and died in South America. The problem I have with
that is that Christina was listed as head of household from 1800- 1810
census. Would Abraham have left in 1800 for the War? )

Abraham Gallentine must have died abt 1800. ( He may have been the son of the
above Jacob Gallentine's uncle Frederich Abraham Gallatin and wife Maria
Philpoena. That Abraham Gallatin was born October 23, 1762 in Lancaster Pa )
