A lot of my family, (Snyders) lived in that area. I believe they moved in about 1840 or so. My Gr, Gr, Gr Grandfather, Benjamin Snyder, owned a farm right on 443, right at the Leb.County and Schuylkill County line. I believe Benjamin and a couple of his brothers were boatmen for the Union Canal..
Not sure if that helps or not..
