  • Notes 
    • Joseph B. Snyder, "was born December 2nd, 1833. After spending his boyhood on his father's farm at Bloomingdale he went to Winterbourne, Woolwich Township, Ontario, where he was engaged in the mercantile calling for some time. After selling out his interest in the business he settled on a farm about one mile south of Winterbourne where he is still engaged in farming. On April 12th, 1857, he was married to Naomi, daughter of Jacob D. and Jane (Dunbar) Shoemaker,. She was born June 2nd 1838. They have five children"


      Eby, Ezra E. (1895). A biographical history of Waterloo township and other townships of the county: being a history of the early settlers and their descendants, mostly all of Pennsylvania Dutch origin: as also much other unpublished historical information chiefly of a local character. Berlin [Kitchener, Ont.]: [s.n.].

      ________________________

      The death took place, Saturday, in Berlin of Mr. Jos. B. Snyder a well known retired farmer, who for the past nine years has lived in Berlin. He had been in failing health for three months, but confined to his bed for less than two weeks. He was in his 75th year. His birthplace was the old Snyder homestead near Bloomingdale, on the farm now occupied by Mr. Menno Koch, and after he had attained manhood he moved on a farm near Winterbourne, which he conducted successfully until about 9 years ago. Along with a brother, he was also interested in a general store at Winterbourne for six years. Throughout his long residence in this district he had built up a character that was respected by all who knew him, for his integrity and largeness of heart. He was a splendid neighbor and a kind father. He is survived by a widow, two sons, Norman and Nelson, farmers near Winterbourne and two daughters, Mrs. E.J. Shantz of near Heidelberg, and Miss Jane at home.
