Written by Mark Snyder (5th great grandson of Jost Snyder)

I do have all of the children of Jost's son George M. Snyder as this is who
we descend from. I also have several of the other children of Jost husband
wives and some children info. Along with a few old photos that I have
collected from various people that I have met along the way.

I am trying to piece all of this family together. If you have a connection to
any of this line please contact me. In search of the elusive photo of Jost
Snyder. I do have one of his son George Snyder that has to be before 1870
because there is also one of his wife Mary Ann Rex and she died in 1870. Jost
did not die until 1876 so I am in hopes that there is one of him that was
also taken at this time.
