Wellington Enterprise 23 Feb 1910 pg 1

David Young Snyder, was born in Homer, Medina, Co. Ohio, Nov. 25, 1837.

n the 20th day of Nov. 1861, he enlisted in Co., A 72dn Reg’t. O.V.I. On Aug. 29, 1862, while little more than a boy, he was discharged, by reason of physical disabilities. Discharged from the Army of the North to join the great army of sufferers who for 50 years have borne in their bodies the marks of the most terrible war that history records.

Mr. Snyder came to Wellington, soon after leaving the army. He was united in marriage to Rhoda Renouard. To this union three children were born. Of these only one, Mr. Fred Snyder of Cleveland, survive the father.

July 23, 1873, he was united in marriage to Maryette Forbes Renouard. To this union was born one child, Mrs. H. C. Herrick of Wellington.

For many years Mr. Snyder was an active member of the I.O.O.F. and for the past three years he has been an almost constant sufferer and on Feb. 15, 1910, he looked into the face of the Angel of Death and said farewell to the scenes of earth. The wife and two children are left to mourn his loss.
