On one page, we have the three McNeil sisters who married three Snyder brothers! The three sisters were daughters of George Thomas "Tom Pick" McNeil (1870-1930) and Clara Eva Hettie Ellen Jarvis (1873-1959). Tom Pick and Eva had eight children -- six girls first, then two boys.
Left: Mattie Lodemia "Demie" McNeil (1908-1997). She looks like a teenager here, so I'm guessing this photo was taken in the 1920's in Wilkes County, NC. Demie married Donald Vance Snyder(1903-1986) two days before Christmas 1928, in Millers Creek, Wilkes County, NC. Demie and Don had three children:
- Clara Louise (1930-1998)
Middle: Toyce Etta McNeil (1905-1969), with Nora Bessie McNeil (1900-1992) and Nora's son, James Neil Snyder (1922-1993). They are all dressed up in their Sunday finest! Since Neil is a toddler, I'm guessing this photo was taken in 1923 or 1924. Toyce married John B. Snyder (1894-1969) in 1930 in Millers Creek. Toyce and John had one child, Dorothy.
Nora married Wiley Thomas "Tom" Snyder (1892-1988) in 1919 in Millers Creek. They had seven children, but only five survived to adulthood:
- James Neil (1922-1993)
- Carrie Mae (1926-2001)
- Ralph Lewis (1932-1996)
