Dewalt Snyder
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 9, 1792
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 16, 1864
Somerset County
Pennsylvania, USA

DOB used above is according to a transcription of a loose fly leaf paper in the Dewalt Schneider family bible. The death date is what the stone inscription looks like to me which disagrees with WPA records. WPA also stated that he was aged 72 yrs 4 days which does not compute, however after enhancing the monument pic to the best of my softwares ability it appears to me that his date of death was actually January 16, 1864 and the 72 years 4 days could actually be 72 years 7 day which does calculate properly.
