Additional commentary.
1. John Ludwig Snyder
JLS is my 3rd great grandfather. I am 91 years young and have been interested in learning more about him. A cousin in No. Dakota has done all the research over the years. The most interesting thing was his travelling to France to attend the funeral of Lemarque his war time friend. He had to have a very strong constitution to have lived so long and had done so much. Were veterans of the Revolutionary War given compensation or land for time served ?
