He united with the Soul Sleeper church in early life and has lived a consistent Christian ever si nce that time. His Bible was his constant compan ion and his study.

      Forty seven Years ago, he with his family moved to Indiana, where as one of the early pioneers he endured many privations and hardships. Indeed, privations seemed to be his lot all down his long like, but a trust in his Master made his burden li ght; none lived nearer to the cross than Grandpa Snyder. His lot was a poorly one and all his life he destined to hard labor with which to earn his bread, and even received his death blow from a limb or tree a week before he died while in the ta marack swamp clearing away the brush.

      He leaves an aged companion, 3 daughters and 1 son to mourn their loss which is his eternal gain. The funeral occurred from the Christian church last Monday afternoon conducted by Rev. Fuller and the body laid away in the Odd Fellows cemetery.
