Today, Naomi Ann Snyder would have turned 100.
John Case, our 10th and 11th great-grandfather in the Snyder line, immigrated to the New World in the first half of the 17th century.
Our 10th and 11th (and 11th and 12th) great-grandmothers Chidester both died around the same date, albeit a quarter of a century apart.
Today 58 years ago, (Great-) Grandma Naomi died.
Our 8th and 9th great-grandfather Studebaker died this week 292 years ago, only three days before his 66th birthday.
Between 1700 and 1900, one date shows up six times in our direct family lines.
Today we remember our 9th (and 10th) great-grandmother Elizabeth in the Snyder line, who was baptized this week 363 years ago in New Amsterdam, but who lived her life on the frontier.
This week in 1836, our 3rd and 4th Great-Grandfather Snyder was born. Happy 183rd Birthday, Grandpa William!
This October-week there are lots of ancestors to remember.
Not everyone who came over here lived in the New World for very long.
