I too would like to know the answers to your questions, Roxanne. I am descended from
Jasper Snyder, Isaac's youngest son, born in Bethlehem, NY. He moved to Canada via
Buffalo (probably taking the then-new Erie Canal). He married Barbara Edward, they farmed
in Canada and then the family moved to Freeport, IL. When Iowa opened up to settlement, he
then moved his family there, in 1856, settling in West Union. I have been only able to
officially trace Jasper (also called Casper) back to his father, Isaac (mother Mary
Johnson) in Bethlehem, NY. But my hunch is that he is related to Johnannes Jost Schneider.
One of the clues is the name 'Philip' which has been passed down to me as being a
prominent Snyder family name. I found that name in the J. Jost line. Anyway, I'm stuck
and would like more verification on Isaac's family roots. Have you found anything more
since you posted this thread two years ago?
