Salome Snyder married Enoch Blackwell Chritton on October 8, 1841 in Montgomery County, Indiana. They had seven children:

The family moved to Saunders County, Nebraska in the spring of 1865. Salome was an invalid at that time and made the trip in the back of a wagon on a bed. See the excellent article on the Enoch B Chritton family at
