Elizabeth Snider was the daughter of Jacob Snider (1732-1790) of Back Creek, Berkeley Co., (West) Va. and she married John Henricks about 1785. They had at least nine children.
HENRICKS, Elizabeth--Will written February 2, 1826. Children: Jacob, Margaret, John, George, Samuel, Daniel, Peter, Elijah and Elizabeth. Executors: Michael Foght and Robert Wiley. Witnesses: Elijah Scofield and James Ward.
Info from Tom Neel - New London, Ohio:
Elizabeth (Snider) Henricks, widow of John Henricks of Madison Twp., Perry Co OH, made her will 2 Feb 1826 [Vol. 1, p. 349-350] which was offered for probate 27 Mar 1826. Micel Foght [sic] and Robert Wiley were executors, and Elijah Scofield and James Ward were witnesses. She asks for decent burial, funeral charges paid, and all estate sold with the money divided amongst her children: "Jacob, Marget [sic], John, George, Samuel, Daniel, Peter, Elijah, Elizabeth." A piece of her tombstone survives in the Mount Perry Cemetery along Jonathan Creek – "Eliz ---- the w --- Henricks ---- 5, 1826."
I believe that she died on 5 Mar 1826. The caretaker told me that it once stood about four rows up the center from the front of the cemetery. This was formerly called the Dunker Cemetery or Jonathan Creek Cemetery.
Unfortunately, the age is not on this piece so we do not have a birth date for her. Her first child, Jacob Henricks, was born 15 Jan 1788, so Elizabeth was likely born about 1770 or earlier.
