Re: Margaret Snedeker - Brooklyn>New Orleans>Indianapolis. Posted by: Marie Reedy (ID *****8934) Date: April 04, 2003 at 20:38:31 In Reply to: Margaret Snedeker - Brooklyn>New Orleans>Indianapolis. by Robbie Oxier of 139

I am researching the family of Ellen/ Elnor Snedeker and her husband Rafe/ Ralph R. Conover. Ralph Conover was born in 1811 in Middlesex County, New Jersey . In 1835, he is a resident of Newark, New Jersey and is married to Elnor. They have 2 children in New Jersey before moving to Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana in either 1838 or 1839. Aaron and Mary Jane. Ralph R.and Elnor are buried with my gg grandparents, William and Catherine Warth Conover in a Terre Haute cemetery. A 3 rd Conover brother that I have documented was Samuel, married in 1835 in Newark to Sarah Frances Weeks. They are buried in Rahway ,New Jersey.

I have a very small amount of Snedeker research on this line but can tell you that Elnor Snedeker Conover's mother was Margaret Smock Snedeker. She is buried in Cranbury, New Jersey and her husband was John Snedeker.The grandfather was Isaac Snedeker and I believe he is from West Brunswick, New Jersey. There are several other children , a son James, but will need to read the Snedeker book to give you more info. Our cousin , Kathryn Conover, was researching Elnor . I will go through her info. There are several Snedeker families in Terre Haute today.

My sister may be able to answer more of your questions. Kathryn Mereness

Note

Clark County Democrat July 20, 1938 DARTHULA FORSYTHE (Obituary) Darthula, daughter of Peter and Prior Snedeker, was born in Mr. Vernon, Ohio, January 20, 1854, and passed away at the home of her son, Wade Forsythe in Terre Haute, Wednesday, July 13, 1938, aged 84 years, 5 months and 23 days. She came to Clark County when a small child and most of her life was spent in Clark County. As will be seen by the dates of her birth and death, her life stretched over the most remarkable period of progress of our country and her memory of the stirring events she had witnessed was clear and she talked of them interestingly. At the age of 18 she was united in marriage to James Nichols. One daughter blessed this union. Mr. Nichols died soon after the child's birth and a few years later she was united in marriage to Clen Forsythe. Two daughters and one son were born to this union. She with her husband was baptized into the Church of God at Oliver on June 24, 1904. She remained a true and faithful member of the church of her choice until death. The deceased was an estimable lady possessed of those traits of character that win friends and retain their friendship. She was devoted wife and mother. Mr. Forsythe preceded her in death July 31, 1904. She is survived by the four children, Mrs. Fairy Gobert, of Olda, Alberta, Canada. Mrs. Ora Loser of Peoria, Ill., Mrs. Ophia Poindexter of Los Angeles, California and Wade Forsythe of Terre Haute, Ind., also several grandchildren and several great grandchildren and many other relatives and a large circle of friends who will miss her as she was always jolly, accommodating and kind hearted- she was a favorite. She possessed many beautiful qualities of heart and mind. The funeral services were conducted at the Oliver church on Saturday afternoon, following her death. Rev.James Kelley of Terre haute, officiating. Burial was in the Forsythe cemetery, where so many of her loved ones are resingl

Text:

Note: Darthula's date of birth on this document differs from most other records. I will conclude that since Mr. Catt's dob is in 1859, Darthula concealed her true dob as to not appear older than the man she was to marry. RF
