    ”Maria was the daughter of Jeremiah/Jeremias Snyder and Annatje/Annaatje/Anna Hannah Hommel.”

    Can I get a source on this?

    There’s a couple named Jeremiah Snyder and Annatje Hannah Hommel, that have a daughter named Mary, married name Bostwick, but it’s a different woman. This Mary is 30 years older than Barry’s gggrandmother, and she’s born in NY, not PA.
