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.
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.

|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.
