Joseph A. Snyder1

b. 30 August 1909, d. 13 February 1979
Father*Charles A. Snyder2 b. 17 Nov 1880, d. 15 Mar 1923
Mother*Maggie Boyd2 b. 11 Nov 1882, d. 31 Dec 1957
Birth*30 August 1909Joseph A. Snyder was born on 30 August 1909 in Seattle, King County, Washington.3,1,4
Name VariationHis full name was Joseph Anthony Snyder5
Name Variation and he was called Joe.5
(Son) Death15 March 1923Joe was 13 years old when his father died on 15 March 1923 at age 42.6
Marriage License15 December 1934A marriage license was issued on 15 December 1934 in Yuma County, Arizona, to Joseph A. Snyder, age 25, a resident of Los Angeles, California and a native of Washington, and Vera Welcome, age 21, a resident of Downey, California and a native of California.1
Marriage*15 December 1934He married first, as her first husband, Vera Welcome, daughter of James Dowis and Lyndall R. Carner, on 15 December 1934, the same day their license was issued, in Yuma County, Arizona.5,3
Divorce*Joseph and Vera (Welcome) Snyder separated, and were probably divorced, very soon after their marriage. On the 1940 census, Vera reported she had lived in Phoenix, Arizona on 1 April 1935, and Joseph, who was enumerated in San Francisco, California, in 1940, reported on the census that year that he had live in Los Angeles, California on 1 April 1935. Vera probably married her second husband before October 1935 when she gave birth to a daughter whose birth registration recorded her surname as STEVENS, the surname of Vera's second husband. Joseph married his second wife in November 1939.7,8,9
(Biological Father) Research NotesThe birth registration for Emajean Stevens, who was born on 12 October 1935 in San Diego County, California, recorded her surname as STEVENS, and James Emery Stevens Jr. certainly raised her as his daughter. Her conception, however, probably occurred in January 1935, about a month after her mother, Vera Dowis Welcome's, marriage to Joseph A. Snyder, whom we suspect was likely Emajean's biological father.10,7
Marriage*27 November 1939He married second, as her first husband, Rose L. Lint, daughter of Claude H. Lint and Zora L. Hockenberg, on 27 November 1939 in California.11,9
World War II*14 January 1944He enlisted for service in the second World War on 14 January 1944 in Los Angeles County, California, and served with the Army Ordnance Corps.12,13
Occupation*1974He had a distinguished career in the newspaper business which began after his graduation from high school in Princeton, Missouri, when he went to work as a Printer's Devil for a Princeton newspaper. (We've learned that a Printer's Devil was a person, typically a young boy, serving at or below the level of apprentice in a printing establishment.) After his service with the Army Ordnance Corps during World War II, he settled in Los Angeles and became a linotype operator for the Los Angeles Herald Express, which later merged with the Los Angeles Examiner. In the late 1940s, he established a newspaper brokerage firm, buying and selling newspapers throughout the Western states and served as interim publisher of some, and at one time owned a portion of the Carpinteria and Cloverdale weeklies. His ownership of the Lindsay Gazette in Lindsay, Tulare County, California, began in 1974.13
Death*13 February 1979He died at age 69 on Tuesday, 13 February 1979, after suffering a massive heart attack in a Lindsay hospital, where he had been a patient since the previous Sunday.13
Burial*He was buried in Olive Cemetery, Lindsay, Tulare County, California.13

George Soule

b. circa 1600, d. circa 22 January 1679
Birth*circa 1600George Soule was born circa 1600 in England.
(Signer) Mayflower Compact11 November 1620George Soule was one of the 41 adult males who signed the Mayflower Compact on 11 November 1620 onboard the Mayflower which was at anchor in what is now Provincetown Harbor, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). All 41 of the adult male members on the Mayflower signed the Compact. It outlined the first written laws for the new land, determined authority within the settlement and was observed as "the law" until 1691. The Compact established that the colony of mostly persecuted Separatists was to be free of English law. It was devised to set up a government from within themselves and was written by those to be governed. When creating the Mayflower Compact, the signers believed that covenants were not only to be honored between God and man, but also between each other. They had always honored covenants as part of their righteous integrity and agreed to be bound by this same principle with the Compact. John Adams and many historians have referred to the Mayflower Compact as the foundation of the U.S. Constitution written more than 150 later.1,2,3
(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656George Soule was among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation. George Soule was one of those who never relocated his family and moved to Bridgewater.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share. To view the complete list of Bridgewater's Original Proprietors, click on the PDF icon; the photo icons lead to four early maps of the Bridgewater settlement.4,5,6,7,8
(Grantor) Land Transfer1660George Soule, Moses Simmons and Philip Delano never moved to Bridgewater and in 1660 sold their proprietor shares to Nicholas Byram who settled there soon after.9
Death*circa 22 January 1679He died circa 22 January 1679 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).
