Family lore says that her name was Elizabeth Jane and several documents state her middle initial as "J", the only place it appears as a "T" is on the gravestone. One can only guess as to how the stone came to be engraved incorrectly but it is possible that the engraver simply mistook a block letter "J" for a "T" on the work order.

The following was transcribed by Les Snyder from "The Wilhelms and the Wilhelm Charge" by L. Nevin Wilson 1919:
Mrs. Snyder was born February 22,1864 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.
