    Jesse Snider born December 28, 1814. Greenbrier..or Monogalia Virginia. He married Catherine McGlaughlin.. Susan Gandy married Jesse Snider then Sam Hanway. You can find graves in Sparr Cemetery, Delaware County, Indiana. Do you know this families lineage. How does he fit into John snider Jr. Jesse Snider and Amos Gandy 1840 Census Preston. Jesse died in 1858 and my lineage is shown in his children listing. Most Children migrated to Iowa. Susan Virginia Snider married Wesley T White and moved to Neodesha, Kansas 1877. Do you know Jesse Snider or Catherines lineage.
