The SNIDER name on the web.

My great-great-grandfather John C. Snider came to the United States from Germany in the 1850s with the German spelling Schneider. Later in his life the spelling was changed to Snider, and we've kept it that way ever since.

John's wife was Martha Ann Murphy

My great-grandfather William Henry Snider and his wife Viola (née Viola Dunkleberger) lived in upstate New York, first Lockport then Ellicottville. They had about 14 sons and daughters, of whom my grandfather John Henry Snider was the oldest son, born in 1910.

We have a family reunion of all William's descendants (as many as can make it) around the 4th of July every three years in Ellicottville. The latest was 2008, the next will be 20011.
