  • Notes 
    • Henry Snider, "the youngest of old Jacob Schneider's large family, was born near Bloomingdale, Ontario, February 2nd, 1811. On march 27th, 1836, he was married to Elizabeth daughter of Jacob C. and Elizabeth (Cressman) Snider. She was born April 19th, 1817. Soon after his married he moved on his father's old homestead where she died January 13th, 1855. Some time after the decease of his wife he was again married to Margaret, daughter of Conrad and Margaret (Kraft) Brehm. She was born October 9th, 1836. Besides being proprietor of the large farm now in possession of his son, Josiah, Mr. Snider was owner of the large roller flour mills in Conestogo, now in possession of his son, Menno S. he and the late Samuel S. Shantz always took an active part in all municipal matters pertaining to their native township and county, Waterloo. Mr. Snider was one of the first parties advocating the necessity of forming a County Agricultural Society, and after its formation was chosen as one of its first directors which position he held for many years in succession. He died January 22nd, 1877. After his decease his widow moved to St. Jacobs where she still resides"

      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a history of the early settlers and their descendants, mostly all of Pennsylvania Dutch origin: as also much other unpublished historical information chiefly of a local character.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.].


      Death of Mr. Henry Snyder - The Berlin Telegraph says: - It is with feelings of sorrow that we record the death of an old and respected resident of the township of Waterloo, Mr. Henry Snyder, which took place at his residence near Bloomingdale on Monday last, the 22nd inst., after a lingering illness of about three months, aged 66 years. The deceased was one of the oldest residents of this county and was born in the old homestead, where he died, in the year 1810, his parents having settled there some four years before that date. He was widely known and highly esteemed in the community. He always took an active part in aiding every commendable public object, enjoying a large share of public confidence, and occupied the position of Councilor of the Township of Waterloo for several years and represented that township in the Provisional County Council at the time of the separation of Waterloo from the union with Wellington and Grey in 1852. For the last ten years he took an active interest in the affairs of the Agricultural Society of this riding, of which he was at one time the President. He was known as a warm and consistent Reformer. His death will be generally lamented, but especially by those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. His funeral, which took place at Bloomingdale, was largely attended.
