    E. N. SNYDER, a leading citizen of Newberry Township, residing on his valuable farm of eighty-seven acres, which lies on the Range line road, near the Shelby County line, about five and one-half miles north of Covington, was born in Preble County, Ohio , March 16, 1833, and is a son of Henry and Eva Parmelia (Mow) Snyder, both of whom spent their worthy lives there.

    E. N. Snyder attended the district schools and grew to manhood a practical farmer. Following his marriage he settled on one of his father-in-law's farms, in Montgomery County, but one year later, in 1858, moved to his present farm in Newberry Township. Mr. Snyder has resided on this place for fifty-one years, during which long period he has made many improvements in the way of erecting farm buildings, but the same house shelters the family now that stood on the place when he and wife moved here. Its appearance, however, is entirely different, but the foundation is the same. Its original construction was of logs and to the first structure Mr. Snyder added, later put in new floors ceilings, etc., and it has all the appearance of a modern house.

    On March 16, 1856, Mr. Snyder was married to Miss Huldah Wysong, a daughter of Valentine Wysong, and they had three children born to them, namely: Anderson Snyder, a prominent farmer in this township, married (first) Harriet Rhoades, who died leaving three children, and (second) Mina Stiver, and they have one child; Valentine, who died just as he reached manhood; and Lucy Ann, who married William Palsgrove, has had three children, two daughters surviving. From his long residence here and on account of his high personal character, Mr. Snyder has been one of the township's influential as well as useful men and it was mainly through his efforts that the mile of turnpike passing his house, on the Range line road, was finally built. He made three different trials before this public spirited enterprise was put through.
