SNYDER, Charley "Buddy"

UPDATE - This photo of Charley Snyder has been claimed by a relative and is going home!  This photograph of CHARLEY SNYDER was located at an antique fair in Florida.

The stamp on the border indicates that the photograph was taken in Marion Indiana, at the Hartsook Photographic Studio.

The fashions worn by the young man point to a time period probably around the mid-1910s.

In the 1900 Census for Marion, Grant County, Indiana, I came across a photographer named John Hartsook, so I definitely had found the right town. 

I then found a family named Snyder which consisted of parents James (born 1860) and Katie (1864), as well as children Pearl (1888), Arlie H. (1890), Charles (1897) and Estey (1900).

From other sources, I find that the children's mother Katie was born Catherine York. Sister Pearl lived until 1971 and married a man named Ray Barney. They had a son named Marshall. I do not know what became of Estey (Ester).

Arl H. married Anna Herkimer and had a daughter named Anna Louis Snyder. Arl died in 1923, at age 33, but I have not found the reason for this. Charley married Helen Lynn Palmer and the couple made their home in Princeville, Peoria County, Illinois. Charley died 21 Sept 1963.
