  • Notes 
    • Daniel S. Snyder, "was born December 5th, 1837. He was educated at the Bloomingdale schools and when old enough to give a helping hand on his father's extensive farm, the subject of our sketch had to put by his books and slate and go and drive the plow. Although devoting his attention chiefly to the agricultural pursuits, yet he found some spare moments which he very beneficially employed in posting himself in all political and municipal matters pertaining to his country. Soon after his moving to Woolwich Township he entered the council of that township and was councillor, deputy reeve and reeve in succession for a number of years. While in the council he was more noted for assiduous attention to business and a watchful care of the interests of the township than for oratorial display. He always gave his views, in plain but forcible language. During the many years he served in the council he was chairman of various committees, such as roads, bridges, claims, etc., and such was the confidence placed in him by his compeers that his reports and recommendations were generally adopted. In his habits he is plain and simple and at all times willing to accommodate and serve any person that requires his aid. On November 4th, 1860, he was married to Nancy, daughter of David and Mary (Mosser) Reist. She was born December 26th, 1840. Soon after their marriage they moved to Woolwich Township, about two miles north of Conestogo where he owns a farm of over 200 acres of land. To them were born eleven children"
