Snyder, George, was born on the Snyder homestead in the town of Dryden, October 16, 1842. His father, James Snyder, was a son of George Snyder, who was one of the earliest settlers in the town, coming in and settling about 1800. James Snyder, with his brother, Ira W. Snyder, owned the homestead in common and spent their lives side by side on the same property. Ira died in 1891 and James followed in 1893. James married at the age of twenty seven, Maria Fulkerson, daughter of Josiah Fulkerson, and they were the parents of four children, three sons, George, Giles and Hiram, and one daughter, Emily J., of whom one son, George, is now living. George was educated in the common schools and finished at the Ithaca High School under Professor Williams. At the age of twenty eight he married Sarah Albright, daughter of Jacob Albright, of Dryden. He takes the Republican side in politics and an active, intelligent interest in educational and religious matters. Our subject is a prominent man in his town, a descendant of one of the oldest families, who have always been connected with all the leading events of the town.
