Birth: Apr. 10, 1912
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Dec. 1, 1973
Lehigh County
Pennsylvania, USA

Catharine (Snyder) Williams was the daughter of Timothy Grant Snyder and Alice (Blake) Snyder.

Catharine's father, Tim, was a Spanish American War veteran who served on Admiral Dewey's flagship, the Olympia, before mustering out as a Corporal. He worked for the railroad system before passing away in 1925.

Catharine's mother, Alice, passed away in 1942. Tim and Alice are interred in the oldest section of the same cemetery (Section 1, Lot 404), approximately a football field's length away from their daughter Catharine's grave site. Also interred at the same plot with Catharine's parents were Catharine's brother, John Blake Snyder (1907-1990), and Catharine's sister, Lillie May Snyder (1905-1907).

In addition to providing dates of birth and death for Catharine (Snyder) Williams, the grave marker also shows the name of her husband, Ralph J. "Albie" Williams. According to SSDI and obituary records, Albie passed away in 2006; however, the grave marker provides no death date for him. The birth date carved for him on the grave marker was 26 Oct 1923.

In August 2012, a St. Mark's Cemetery official confirmed that the cemetery has no record of Albie's interment at this plot.

The administrative officers do, however, have record of the interment of Timothy Grant "Skip" Snyder at this location. Skip was the paternal nephew of Catharine. A Korean War veteran who was a son of Catharine's brother, Harry A. Snyder, Sr., Skip passed away 3 Jan 1992. He was cremated prior to interment.

Note: The spelling of the given name of Catharine (Snyder) Williams is consistent with other family members with this same given name within this particular Snyder line ("Catharine" versus the more common "Catherine"). For example, the paternal grandmother of Catharine (Snyder) Williams was Catharine (Boyer) Snyder, the wife of Civil War veteran, Timothy Matthias Snyder.
