In your searches for Snyders in Stephenson County, IL have you come across the family of Henry (1825-?) and Caroline (1827-?) Snyder. They were there at least between 1860 and 1870. Henry was born in Lancaster Co, PA.
I'm looking for marriage of oldest son, Henry G. Snyder and maybe a Fredrick Snyder, whom I've heard of but haven't traced. Birth or Baptisms of the children born in IL, especially Maria H. Snyder, my GG Grandma Musselman.
