Query from Janice Earliene Carr, March 3, 2015:
My husband is descended from the SNYDER FAMILY of Hunterdon, County, N.J., which I will get to later!
My husband James William Carr of Washington, D.C.,
his father is James Entwisle Carr of same; his Mother, Olive Ida SNYDER of Ridgewood, N.J.. (dau. Of Gardiner JOHNSON SNYDER & Elizabeth “Lizzie” Amy LAIR; – dau. Of John LAIR & Mary HANN, which both died young
Different family members raised her, but mainly
her grandparents, Edmund P. HANN & Elizabeth Maclone/ McAloan. As well as her father’s oldest sibling (Amy LAIR APGAR ( wife of Lewis B. APGAR) & her LAIR grandparents, Philip & Mary LAIR, both born in 1798. See 1850 N.J. Census.
Many people says MARY (Philip’s wife) was a SNYDER. WOULD ANYONE ON THIS WEBSITE KNOW?
I have her listed as the daughter of Leonard Snyder (b. 20 Aug 1773) and Rebecca Johnson, but no source for this, so it is only a suggestion. I looked for a marriage record for Philip Lair and Mary Snyder, but could not find one.
Also I have heard that Philip Lair’s Mother was a JOHNSON?
IF SO, IT WOULD CERTAINLY BE A COINCIDENCE AS MY HUSBAND’s MOTHER’s FAMILY ARE SNYDERS & JOHNSON’S as WELL! Her parents I have already listed. HIS parents were Wesley W. SNYDER & Emma JOHNSON (dau. Of Elias JOHNSON & Duttila GANO married 1844 in KINGSWOOD [sic] TOWNSHIP, Hunterdon Co., N.J..
I DON’t have ELIAS’ line any further back, but I have all his children. If interested, I will send later.
I do not have any information on the parents of Elias Johnson and Dutila Gano. I hope readers can contribute some.
