The following is taken from:

[http://freepages.books.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cooverfamily/album_98.html#snyder]

WILLIAM W. SNYDER, a progressive farmer and stock-raiser, residing on section 34, English River Township, was born in Monongalia County, Va., [now WV] March 14, 1832. He is the son of Jeremiah and Anna (Rich) Snyder, also natives of the Old Dominion, and the parents of twelve children, of which number nine are yet living: George and John are deceased; Abram is a resident of Greene County, Pa.; Rollo, deceased; Casandra is the widow of George Hogg, who was killed in the army; Jeremiah, Jr., is farming in Lime Creek Township, this county; Jacob, a retired farmer, is residing in Iowa City; Colby is farming extensively in Johnson County, Iowa; Samuel, in Adair County; Elizabeth is the wife of George Figgins, a farmer of English River Township, and W. W., the subject of this sketch.

The father followed the occupation of a farmer in his native State until 1842, when, hearing of the opportunities offered in the far West, and believing it would be for the advantage of his large family of children, he concluded to emigrate. He first proceeded with his family to Wheeling, thence by boat to Keokuk, Iowa, and from there overland to English River Township. He entered 250 acres of land on sections 1 and 12, and commenced to open up a farm. As one of the pioneers of this county, he became well known by all old citizens, and was a man held in high favor. Although not connected with any church, Mr. and Mrs. Snyder were strong believers in the divinity of Christ and took an interest in all Church work. The mother died in 1860 and the father in 1873. Both rest in the old Snyder Cemetery, near which stood the Snyder Chapel. Many lessons of truth, charity and integrity were presented in the lives of these good old people.

The early life of the subject of this sketch was passed on his father's farm and in attendance at the common schools until he reached the age of twenty, when he started out for himself, and began working for $8 per month. On the 9th of December, 1852, he was united in marriage with Miss Martha Gwin, a native of Menard County, Ill., born March 27, 1834, and the daughter of Richard and Nancy (Watkins) Gwin, the former a native of Tennessee and the latter of Kentucky. They were married in Indiana, whence they removed first to Illinois at an early day and thence emigrated to Iowa, settling in Des Moines County in 1836, thus being among the pioneers of the State. The father died Jan. 7, 1884, and the mother July 6, 1884, in Wilson County, Kan. They were well-known and useful citizens in the different localities in which they lived.

Mr. and Mrs. Snyder became the parents of five children: Ida, the wife of A. M. Turner, a farmer in Potter County, Dak; Charles F., pursuing the same vocation there also; Anna, the wife of S. A. Rodgers, a farmer of the same locality; Eva, at home, preparing herself for a teacher; Adella, at home. Mr. and Mrs. Snyder have given all of their children good school advantages, and all are members of the Missionary Baptist church, thus comprising a devoted Christian family.

After the marriage of our subject, he continued to reside on the old homestead until 1869; when he first took possession, it had only a small frame house on it in which the family lived and worked happily together until 1882. The old house was then moved back to give place to a more modern and convenient dwelling. Mr. and Mrs. Snyder are now in the evening of life, some of their children growing up around them and some leaving home to seek their fortunes in a new country, as did their parents before them. They have witnessed many and great changes. Their farm, which at the time of purchase was unimproved, is now under a high state of cultivation and one of the most valuable in the township. They have seen the building of the church upon the hillside and the school-house in the valley, and have taken an active part in all religious, temperance and public affairs. During the past five years Mr. Snyder has turned his attention to the raising of high-grade stock, having on hand a number of superior Clydesdale horses and a fine lot of Chester White hogs and Short-horn cattle. Politically, Mr. Snyder is a Democrat, and has held various township offices.

I don't yet know whether this is our Ida and A M Turner; however, everything matches, so I'll list the family and compare it to their 1900 (or 1885/1895, if possible) census entry, if I find it, to see where her parents were born--if in VA and IL, respectively, then I'll believe these are they.

When he first took possession, it had only a small frame house on it in which the family lived and worked happily together until 1882. The old house was then moved back to give place to a more modern and convenient dwelling. Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Snyder are now in the evening of life, some of their children growing up around them and some leaving home to seek their fortunes in a new country, as did their parents before them. They have witnessed many and great changes. Their farm, which at the time of purchase was unimproved, is now under a high state of cultivation and one of the most valuable in the township. They have seen the building of the church upon the hillside and the school-house in the valley and have taken an active part in all religious, temperance, and public affairs. During the past five years Mr. Snyder has turned his attention to the raising of high-grade stock, having on hand a number of superior Clydesdale horses and a fine lot of Chester White hogs and Short-horn cattle. Politically, Mr. Snyder is a democrat and has held various township offices.

Mr. William Snyder's alleged background:

 
3._--Jeremiah Snyder, d. 1873 in IA; m. Anna Rich (d. 1860 in IA; bd. IA); both natives of the Old Dominion, and the parents of twelve children, of which number nine are yet living (i.e., as of ca. 1887);

Jeremiah followed the occupation of a farmer in his native State until 1842, when, hearing of the opportunities offered in the far West, and believing it would be for the advantage of his large family of children, he concluded to emigrate. He first proceeded with his family to Wheeling, thence by boat to Keokuk, Iowa, and from there overland to English River Township.

He entered 250 acres of land in sections 1 and 12, and commenced to open up a farm. As one of the pioneers of this county, he became well known by all old citizens, and was a man held in high favor.

Although not connected with any church, Mr. and Mrs. Snyder were strong believers in the divinity of Christ and took an interest in all Church work.

The mother died in 1860 and the father in 1873. Both rest in the old Snyder Cemetery, near which stood the Snyder Chapel.

Many lessons of truth, charity and integrity were presented in the lives of these good old people.

Children of Jeremiah and Anna Snyder:

4.1--George Snyder, b. ; d. ;

4.2--John Snyder, b. ; d. ;

4.3--Abram Snyder, b. ; resident of Greene Co., PA;

4.4--Rollo Snyder, b. ;

4.5--Cassandra Snyder, b. ; widow of George Hogg, who was killed in the army;

4.6--Jeremiah Snyder, Jr., b. ; farmer in Lime Creek Township, this co.;

4.7--Jacob Snyder, b. ; a retired farmer, resident in Iowa City;

4.8--Colby Snyder, b. ; farmer in Johnson Co., IA;

4.9--Samuel Snyder, b. ; in Adair Co.;

4.10--Elizabeth Snyder, b. ; m. George Figgins, a farmer of English River Township;

4.11--William W. Snyder, b. 14 Mar 1831 in Monongalia Co., VA [now WV]

The following cannot be our WW Snyder; yet the 1880 census of the Dakota Terr. yields only him:

Richard Gwin has one of the Gwins married into the Gideon Bear family and one into the Jeremiah Snider and therefore into the Thomas family of Washington Co., Iowa.
 
Catharine Bush married William Watkins Gwin; that ties the four families togther.
