Elizabeth J. "Lizzie" Crossen Snyder
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 22, 1864
Death: Jul. 25, 1917

Family lore says that her name was Elizabeth Jane. The 1870 census also had her middle initial as "J" as well as family historian from that same era. Although her tombstone clearly has her name as Lizzie T., I believe that to in error and have chosen to use "J" as her middle initial since there are ample sources to support it.

The following was transcribed by Les Snyder from "The Wilhelms and the Wilhelm Charge" by L. Nevin Wilson 1919:
*****************
Mrs. Snyder was born February 22,1964 at Athens, Ohio. Her death occurred July 25, 1917, after a lingering illness of many months. She was brought up in the Winebrinarian Church, while Mr. Snyder was reared a United Brethren. When they located in the St. Paul section, they were both received into the fellowship of St. Paul's Reformed Church.

They were united in marriage, July 2, 1882, at Elk Lick by Rev. R. Smith, a Lutheran minister. To this union were born the following children: Albert F., Guerney, Lester E., Harry E. and Elmer S. Snyder.
