Lewis Snyder Memorial #94369660
Thank you for your prompt reply. I don't know if this is the same Lewis Snyder, or if the newspaper confused the issue. That's why I was hoping you had an obituary from Henry, to compare what the Berks County paper published.

Lewis Snyder #94369660
Hello,

I see you have a Lewis Snyder Memorial #94369660 posted in the Henry Cemetery, Henry, Marshall Illinois. You also have a wife posted for him, Clara Brown Snyder Memorial No.94369737. I found an obituary for a Lewis Snyder who was born in Berks County, PA and died in Henry, Illinois, who was also married to a Clara Brown. But the Lewis Snyder I found (see below) was born in 1820 and died in May of 1904. I think something has gotten confused her and your Lewis may be a son of the Lewis Snyder I found. Might you have an obituary for Lewis Snyder, Memorial #94369660 that may reveal additional information.

Reading Eagle, Berks County, Reading, PA
May 19, 1904

Lewis Snyder who was born in Oley, died of the infirmities of old age, aged 84 years 6 months and 21 days, at his home in Henry, Marshall County, Illinois. He was next to the youngest of a family of 6 children, was left an orphan at the early age of 6 years and was placed in charge of and cared for by an uncle, Peter Snyder, until he was 15 years of age, when he was apprenticed to a harness maker for 2 years. When 19 years of age he left for the West. He was engaged in the harness making business in Henry, Illinois, for over half a century and had built up an extensive trade. In 1841 he married to Miss Charlotte Young, who died in 1884 and in 1885 he was married to Miss Clara Brown, who survives him. His sister Mrs. D. H. Fager, aged 82, lives in Kansas City, in good health. She is the widow of the brother-in-law of Maj. S. E. Ancona.

Someone just brought it to my attention that you created a memorial for Glenn Hattan many years after I did. The memorial number is 110282763. I would greatly appreciate it if you would remove your duplicate memorial. Thanks for considering.

Henry Cemetery - Abraham Snyder
Many thanks for getting Abraham's headstone onto Find A Grave. It's a great headstone to see.

I wonder if you'd allow me to use the pic in the family research, with credit of course?

Thx,

Transfer of two people
GWL,
Thank you for your work on Find a Grave; it is greatly appreciated!

I was wondering if you would consider transferring Bernard Rott (98648905)
and his wife Beverly Rott (98648934) to me?
Bernard Rott's grandfather (Seraphine Rott, Jr) as a brother to my greatgrandfather (Frank Rott). My mother's maiden name was Rott.
Bernard Rott and I are second cousins, once removed.

My number is 49041038.

Thank you again for your work with Find a Grave!
