Jacob Ludwig Snider, Sr
Birth: Apr. 26, 1732
Weißenburg-Gunzenhausener Landkreis
Bavaria (Bayern), Germany
Death: Mar. 3, 1790
Berkeley County
West Virginia, USA

Jacob Snider is buried on the Old Snider Plantation near the Swinging Bridge over Back Creek. He operated a grist mill at this location. His grave marker is located near the location of the home near a farm implement storage shed.

According to Mr Donald Riggs (1980) there were more graves there but they had been trodden down by farm animals over the years. Jacob's son Abraham, who ended up with the farm after Jacob's death, is probably buried here also along with his first two wives and perhaps some children.

Jacob's widow Margaret Studebaker moved to Bedford Co., Pa. with her three younger sons after Jacob's death. She is buried there in West Providence Township about 1813 (now Snake Spring Township).

On October 6, 2007 a dedication service was held for Jacob Snider for his Revolutionary War service. The marker was provided by the Veteran's Administration.

It is believed that Jacob immigrated to Philadelphia from Germany arriving on the ship Fane on 17 October 1749. On board the ship were his father Jacob Schneider Sr, mother Anna Margaretha Seffer and siblings Christopher, Johan Jacob and Martin .
