Hunts, Smoots all members of the Primitive Baptist Church. There they had their meeting house and burial ground for several years. The Sniders were German and had considerable land and owned many of the acres that were first purchased for coal development by the Newburg-Orvel Coal Company. These Sniders were Henry Snider, Sr., and his wife, Mary (Browning) Snider. They came from Fauquier county, Virginia, about 1800. Their children were: Jesse, married Lee Ann Hardis; John, married Nellie Corder; Henry, married Mary Ayers Hunt, March 1, 1811; Cena, married Job McCill; Elizabeth, lived 100 years, unmarried; Frances, married James DeMoss; Jane, married James Bell; Lucy, married William De Moss, January 16 1801; Polly (or Mary) married Benjamin Matthews; Nimrod, married Catherine Hall in Faquier county, Virginia in 1796; Sarah, married Eli Matthews; Caleb, died in youth; Harmon, died in youth. Henry Snider, Sr., the father of this family died in 1805 and is buried in the Old Baptist graveyard, on Scotch Hill.

Henry Snider, Jr., whose wife was Mary Ayers Hunt, to whom he was married in Monongalia county, Virginia, March 1, 1811 by Joshua Hickman, lived near his father's setlement. The children to this union were Harmon, who married a Miss Diamond; Elizabeth, who married Hiram Manear; Jane, who married a Miss Blackwood; Jackson, who married Miss Christina Craig; Enos Browning, who married Lee Ann Kittle; Mary, who married Daniel Fawcet; Ann, who married Joe Smith; Jane who married W. M. Paul (See Paul III)

This is NOT my Snider line ... I kept a copy because my Snider line was also in Monongalia County, Virginia and needed it to sort out the family groups!
