Jane Catherine Snyder1

ID # 283, (1885-1922)
Descendants of Catherine Jones & William Coleman
     Jane Catherine Snyder was born on 9 November 1885 at Waterloo County, Ontario.1 She married Harry Leroy Coleman, son of Charles Coleman and Florence Nancy Mulholland, on 22 June 1904 at Galt, Waterloo County, Ontario. (notes: 18565-04 Harry Leroy COLEMAN, 22, mechanic, Troy - Wentworth Co., Galt, s/o Charles COLEMAN & Nancy MULHOLLAND, married Jane Catherine SNIDER, 18, Waterloo Ont., Galt, d/o Adam B. SNIDER & Agnes HEWITT, witn:Minor TEETZEL & Jane C. SNIDER, both of Galt, 22 June 1904 at Galt

It's interesting how records get crossed up along the way. In the marriage record book for Ainslie Street Methodist Church, later Wesley Church, the name of the first witness is poorly written. Minor Teetzel is a good transcription and, based on what I saw at the United Church Archives I can accept that. The other witness is given as Lillly Leutwein! Jane C. Snider appears on the marriage registration and is completely reasonable. What happened here, I don't know.).1
She married Thomas Clark on 23 July 1921 at Galt, Waterloo County, Ontario. (notes: 022287-21 Thomas W. Clark, teamster, bachelor, age 53, Presbyterian, residence Galt, born Haldimand County, parents Hugh Clark and Ina Calder. Mrs. Jane Coleman, widow, 36, Methodist, born and residing Galt, parents Adam Snyder and Agnes Hewitt. Witnesses: D.W. Hewitt and Jane Hewitt, both of Galt. Clergyman: W.H. Snelgrove, Galt, Anglican. At Galt, 23 July 1921.).1 She died on 17 September 1922 at Galt, Waterloo County, Ontario, at age 36.1 In the marriage book for Ainslie Street Methodist Church in Galt, Jane's parents are shown as Adam H. Snider and Agnes Hewitt.

A family story tells that Jane's brother, Emerson Snyder, took in some of Jane's children after her death. Along with a brother Emerson, Jane had a sister Mary Emma Snyder. She went by Emma and married William Himes of Galt. They had a son that they named Emerson who died in the Second World War. Will Himes' sister Lavinia married Alven Coleman, a first cousin of Harry Coleman.1
