    Snyder Family Crest
    Recorded in several spellings including Schneidau, Schneider, Schneidar, Schnieder, Scneider, Snyder, and Schnitter, this is an occupational German surname, although one also recorded in Austria, France and Belgium since the medieval times. It derives from the word "snitare", itself a derivative of the pre 8th century "snidden", and translates as "one who sews" - a tailor. This relatively humble, but highly important origin, does not seem to have been a bar to the success of the name holders, there being at least eight coats of arms granted to various members over the centuries. In addition the name received world-wide publicity in the years between 1912 and 1932, through the international air race, the Schneider Trophy. Early examples of the surname recording taken from authentic charters and registers of the period include Johann Christoph Schneidar, who married Maria Emig at Pleuzhausen, Rheinland on April 30th 1754, and Johann Gottlieb Schneidau who married Anna Marie Philip at Danzig Stadt, West Prussia on April 17th 1842. The first recorded spelling of the family name is belived to be that Rotcher Sniter from Greifswald, Germany, in the year 1302.This was during the reign of Emperor Albert 1st of the German Empire, 1298 - 1308. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop", often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

  • Notes 
    • From: Sharilyn Whitaker [mailto:sharilyn at northcoast. com) Sent: March 2, Dear Sandi, I don't want to overload you here with my problems, but I spent considerable time last year proving to my own satisfaction at least that Mary Snyder, Wife of Alexander Laughlen was a daughter of Simon Snyder and Mary Lane of Rumbout Precinct in Dutchess, where Alexander and Mary were married and had their first children. If you are interested in my reasoning, which involves the gap in Poughkeepsie records during the time of her birth, and also the identity of Marcus Snyder U. E. L., whom I believe to have been her brother, also born to Simon and Mary in that Poughkeepsie Roman Catholic black hole. The Peters connection to the two lines supports my view in my opinion. So, I have something to offer you I return for your assistance.

      Now, in shorthand form, there is an international Snyder Peters research group in operation, and we have a mysterious Scot named WATCHMAN (possible given name William) that enters into our research in a big way. Unfortunately, there is next to nothing to help us. Also involved, perhaps, is Israel Osborne, who was a captured Loyalist, and appears with his son, or perhaps sons, Alexander and Israel II on the same list of Loyalist prisoners moved out of state as does Alexander Mc Laughlen. Bear with me for a moment. Here is how it goes:

      About 1779, probably in Saratoga, New York, USA, DORCAS WATCHMAN is born. In 1795, as DORCAS WATCHMAN spinster, just a tad under 16 years of age, she married Joseph Peters. Then, shortly after this, she petitions for land as a daughter of a U. E. Loyalist, calling herself DORCAS SNYDER, daughter of Mark Snyder, U. E. L.,. This petition was denied, but nearly four decades later, she tried again, never mentioning

      Watchman, and the petition were granted. We have toyed with several ideas, a brief first marriage (how could she then have been a spinster at marriage?, adoption, but the option of her having been a step-child of Marcus Snyder, U. E. L., possibly Mary Snyder Mc Laughlen's brother, seems the most viable idea. Her mother's name might have been Elizabeth, which was the name of Marcus Snyder, U. E. L.'s Wife, and mother of his three known daughters.

      Now, one of our group recently discovered a Marriage Certificate for the son of Dorcas Watchman and Joseph Peters, and for his mother's name he gives DORCAS WATCHMAN (not Snyder), and she also found an 1824 record where a man named Osborn WATCHMAN witnessed a marriage in Elizabethtown. It is almost certain, considering the dirth of those of the Watchman surname, which Osborn Watchman was related to our Dorcas Watchman, possibly he was her brother, and this fits with other things we know, which I'll spare you.

      I got to thinking that Osborn sounded like a surname, and went into my large data base of Snyder Peters related people, and particularly into the Mc Laughlen information I had put together from you and your site, and other on-line sources, looking for clues to the identity of Mary Snyder, and found the following. I am trying to DOCUMENT and confirm the accuracy this information, and anything you can add or correct would be deeply appreciated:

      Eli Peters (brother of the Joseph Peters who married Dorcas Watchman and his Wife Phoebe Babcock have a son Eli Peters born 1824 that married Maria Elizabeth Mc Laughlen, daughter of Jacob, son of Alexander, and his Wife Ruth Johnson Johnston. Eli Peters and Maria Elizabeth have Thomas W. Peters b. ca 1851, who married Hannah Mc Laughlen.

      Hannah, b. ca 1851 in Wilton, Lennox Addington, Ontario, Canada, first Wife of Thomas W. Peters, was the daughter of JOHN Laughlen and Rosie Ann OSBORNE born about 1838. Hannah had a sister Hester who married Ben Mc Donald and died in childbirth with her first baby.

      John Laughlen, born about 1814, was the son of Jacob Laughlen and his First. Wife Almira, after whom he and second Wife Ruth Johnson named a daughter. This makes John and Maria Elizabeth half-siblings.

      Hannah Mc Laughlen and Thomas W. Peters named their first son ISRAEL.

      OK now. Taking that name, adding it to Osborne, the maiden name of Hannah, I came up with a proposed "ISRAEL OSBORNE", whom I theorized might have been her Father. I then went to the list of captured Loyalists taken out of state, from "New York, USA in the Revolution as Colony and State, and there found Israel Osborne, I, Israel, II and Alexander, and also, of course, Alexander Mc Laughlen.

      Before we do anything else, are there mistakes in any of the above scenario that you are able to correct, and most important, can you clarify whether Jacob had TWO Marriages, the first to Almira producing John, and the second to Ruth Johnson Johnston producing Maria Elizabeth. I found the two marriages in another source; you have only the one to Ruth. The name Almira among his daughters by Ruth seems to offer a clue, but I have never seen the Mc Laughlen genealogy used as a source by most researchers of this family.

      This takes me to another question; can you help me access a copy of this Mc Laughlen genealogy? Among the very few things we have been able to come up with about the surname WATCHMAN, is that it is Scotch. We have developing links now between the families of Osborne, Watchman, Peters, Snyder and Mc Laughlen in Saratoga, during the period of capture of Alexander Mc Laughlen and Israel Osborne, and then in Ernestown, Lennox, Ontario, Canada. Studying the Mc Laughlen source material seems to be imperative to our research at this point.

      Many thanks for your assistance. And, incidentally, forgive me calling everyone "Mc Laughlen". The variant versions of the surname still confuse me. Regards, Sharilyn Whitaker for the Snyder Peters Research Group
