When JOHN CALVIN SNIDER was born on 20 Oct 1873, in Dexter, Stoddard County, Missouri, his father, GEORGE WASHINGTON SNIDER, JR. (1837-1913), was 35 and his mother, MALINDA GODWIN (1843-1920), was 30. He was the 4th child out of 6, with 1 sister being first-born and 4 brothers:

•John Calvin Snider 1873–1963
•Joseph E 'Joe' Snider 1883–1969
•Albert Wesley Snider 1887–1950

He was 19 and his bride was 16 when he married NANCY LUCINDA BOYT on 21 Sep 1893, in his hometown of Dexter, Missouri, and they had 10 children in 23 years:

•Pearl Mae Snider 1894–1964
•George Thomas Snider 1896–1944 PFC, Coast Artillery Corps, World War I
•Lillie Melinda Snider 1898–1938

•Marion John 'Babe' Snider 1917–1999 SN, U.S. Navy, World War II

His wife, Nancy, was boss of the family. He was a soft-spoken, gentle man who never raised his voice or spoke a harsh word to anyone. He was the owner of a little store that sold everything from chickens, with a chicken coup out back, to chewing tobacco, which had to be cut off in chunks. The store traded one thing for another on the barter system. It was located in Frisco, but they lived ˝-mile down the road in Essex.

He lived 22 years following his wife's death in 1941. He died at the age of 89 on 2 Oct 1963, in Butler, Bates County, Missouri, and is buried in the Dexter Cemetery.
