Birth*29 January 1794Hannah Catherine Jacoby was born on 29 January 1794 in Hilltown Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.3,4
Marriage*24 December 1815He married John Snyder, son of Jacob Snyder and Elizabeth Croll, on 24 December 1815.1,2,7,3,4
Relocation*1819Hannah and John moved with their surviving daughter, Catherine, to Holmesburg, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, in the Spring of 1819.4
Census US 1850*1 September 1850Hannah and John Snyder were enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 1 September 1850 in Hilltown Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. John was 56 years of age and a farmer with real estate valued at $4,000, and Hannah was also 56 years of age. Four of the couple's children were enumerated in the Snyder household in 1850. Mary was 29 years of age; Alfred was age 27 and worked as a laborer; Wilhelmina was 16 years old; and Emma was age 12. Another boy, John Snyder, age 16, was also enumerated with the family and may have possibly been a nephew.

It's unfortunate that relationships were not included on the 1850 census. We can determine that he was not a son because of his placement in the family by the census taker. The first four children were all listed in descending order by age -- until John, who was listed after 12-year-old Emma.

Whatever John's relationship in the family was, he and the other two youngest children, Wilhelmina and Emma, had all attended school within the year. Hannah's mother, Catharine Jacoby, also resided with her daughter and son-in-law in 1850. Catherine was 92 years of age.8
Death*22 September 1854She died on 22 September 1854 at age 603,4
Burial* and was buried in Beulah Cemetery, New Britain, Bucks County.3,4
