A. Morris Snyder, son of Daniel S., is a prosperous farmer. He was born on the homestead in Upper Mahanoy Township March 19, 1873, and received his education in the local schools and in the academy at Berrysburg, Dauphin County. Farming has been his life work, and in the spring of 1890 he began farming on his own account at the homestead, where he continued to live until he sold the place, in 1910. He and his brother Charles purchased the farm from their brother Daniel in 1890, and owned it in partnership for nine years, at the end of which period A. Morris Snyder purchased his brother's interest. In 1910 he bought the nice level place in Rockefeller Township where he moved Nov. 24th of that year, and where he now lives. He is a successful agriculturist, owns a full line of up-to-date date farm stock, and markets his produce at Ashland and Girardville, sometimes making as many as four trips a week.
On July 8, 1899, Mr. Snyder married Bella Jane Hetrick, daughter of Samuel and Hosanna (Dunkelberger) Hetrick and granddaughter of John Hetrick and of Joseph Dunkelberger. Three children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Snyder: Willard D. (who died in infancy), Henry Alvin and Esther Pauline. Mr. and Mrs. Snyder are Lutheran members of St. John's Church.
