  • Notes 
    • Tilman B. Snider, "was born December 9th., 1850. On October 24th, 1871, he was married to Magdalena Groff. He was raised at Waterloo and when well up in his "teens" he entered the mills and followed the milling business for a number of years. He and his brother Amos were joint owners of the German Mills for some years. In June, 1890, he moved to Sanborn, Iowa, U.S., where he is now engaged in farming and stockraising. While residing at German Mills Mr. Snyder took an active part in municipal matters, having served several years at the council board as councillor, then deputy reeve for the township. His family consists of six children"

      ______________________

      T. B. SNIDER, Deputy Reeve of Waterloo Township, is a son of Elias Snider, and brother of E. W. B. Snider, M.P.P., and reckons among his ancestors some of the pioneers of this county, to whose efforts its development to its present high status is largely attributable. He was born in Waterloo Village in 1850, and there he grew to manhood. At the age of nineteen he assumed control of his father's extensive flouring mills, and later became a partner with his brother, A. B. Snider, in operating the large German Mills, an establishment which has been in commission about sixty years. He also participates in the promotion of agricultural matters, and has been largely instrumental in the improvement of the farm stock of the county by the importation of choice beasts from abroad. He has taken part as well in the conduct of municipal matters for several years past, and is now serving his third year in the township Council in the capacity of Deputy Reeve.
