My GG Grandmother was Mariah E. Snider, daughter of Ira Lewis "Louie" Snider & Mahala (Sellars ?). Mariah was babt: 1842-45 her siblings were listed in the 1850 census as: John A, William, Sarah F., James, Mary, Henry F., Virginia, Collins, and Sissy. The 1880 census has a John & William Snider listed as brothers staying w/ Mariah and her husband Melvin Garner (son of Abraham & Nancy Garner). Louis Snider was the son of John M. Snider who was in the group of Sniders that migrated from SC to AL by covered wagon., any information on Ira Louie Lewis Snider is appreciated...

Hi Joyce, I have a copy of a marriage cert for James L. Snider who married Nancy Francis "Frannie" Garner on May 25, 1876 in Tuscaloosa County. I believe this James is the brother of my GG Grandmother Mariah Snider, he was born 1843. Mariah Snider married Pinkney Melvin Garner on the same day as James Snider married Frannie Garner whom I believe is Melvin Garner's older sister. In fact their marriage records are on the same page. On some census records I see what appears to be James J. Snider although clearly on the marriage record it is J L Snider. I do not know the names of their children yet. James Snider's parents were Jacob & Elizabeth (Riley) Snider and they are buried at the Old Center Cemetery in Northport, Ala., I have photo's of the Cemetery & headstones, I did not see James there nor Mariah, but if they were living in Cottondale, AL, they might be at the Hopewell Cemetery or the Big Sandy. I have the history of the Sniders/Snyders going back to Wurrtenberg, Ger, their arrival in Charleston SC in 1742 and the migration of Sussanah Snider (Mother of Matthias, John, George & others) would be happy to share the info I have...I do research trips to Tuscaloosa several times a year and will look for James & Frannies' Children...Carol

I know my James Snider's wife was Eliza, C.___ and I suspected he was not Jacob's son. If the James you know to be Jacob's son married someone else (Fannie and...) that seems to confirm that my James is of another Snider family. Alas, I have no clue as to which one. In addition to Dovey, Collins and Ebenezer, there was a Sampson or two in their naming choices. Thanks for your reply.

Joyce, I am looking for a James L. Snider b. abt 1849-1851 maybe in GA. He married in TN in 1872 but I lost track of him after the 1880 census. Do you know the middle name of the James Snider you are looking for? Also, could your James Snider have been married more than once?

Hello, My James Snider was probably James T. Snider. I don't know the name. The census was a bit hard to read and it could have been James J. Snider. Joyce Louis
