Snyder Family, part 2

From left to right, Grover Snyder, Harry Snyder, Grandma Snyder, Josephine, Margaret (my grandmother), Jim Snyder, Avery Snyder. The above pic is undated, but appears to be late 1920s. Grandma Snyder died 1932 at age 79.

Uncle Avery had a home across from Grandma Myers.

There were 9 children born to Margaret and Amos Snyder. Two died in infancy, and one, Hattie Elizabeth died in 1917. Hattie Elizabeth was married to a Zachardy. Josephine was married to a John Zachardy. Not sure if the 2 sisters married brothers--or possibly the same man. Will look into this further.* Aunt Jo was older than Grandma Myers.

Here are Aunt Jo and Grandma together.
Here is Aunt Jo, I'm thinking around 1970.

Not sure how old she is in above pic. I remember Aunt Jo only as an old, woman lying in bed. She was completely senile--I guess today we'd say she had dementia. Dementia seems to run in the women that side of the family. I intend to break the cycle. Remind me of this vow next week in case I forget.

From the pictures above it also seems that WHITE hair runs in the family. I believe I once heard that my grandma greyed very early.

The following are all pics of Grandma Myers and in all of them she has WHITE hair.
undated
dated Aug 1941
dated 1942, at Mom's graduation
Grandma would have been 59 in the above pic. She appears much older. Sorry.

                                                                                         
 Myers house 1912, Margaret and Harvey Myers were married in 1910. Probably first house they lived in as a married couple. She was 27 at the time. Harvey and Margaret had 7 children. The oldest child was Mary Elizabeth born April 28, 1911. My mother was the youngest, born in 1924 when Margaret was 41.

Lastly, here is a pic of Uncle John and Aunt Jo. The pic is undated, but I would put it at between 1910 - 1917.

Looks like Aunt Jo married her brother-in-law. John H. Zachardy married 2 Snyder girls, sisters Elizabeth Hattie and Josephine.
