Query: SPANGLE,VONNIEDA,DALE,SNYDER I am researching families related to Samuel VONNIEDA, married to Sarah SNYDER. They moved to Iowa and had several children at Jackson County, IA- Rosella & Matilda. Looking for any information on them. John SPANGLE, born 1800 in PA married Sarah Emma---------, and had a son, Samuel David SPANGLE, also born in PA, but they moved to Hamilton Co., Iowa. Any information on these lost souls?? There also was an Abraham G. SNYDER, born 13 Dec 1836, married 1 Jan 1861 to Matilda SPANGLE, born about 1843. This SPANGLE, SNYDER family also moved to Hamilton Co. Iowa. Could Samuel David SPANGLE, born 1849 and Matilda SPANGLE, born 1843 be brother and sister? Could Abraham SNYDER, born 1836, and Sarah SNYDER be brother & sister? (Sarah SNYDER VONNIEDA had a child in 1857.) I sure hope someone can solve my mystery about their relationships to each other and provide me with more data. Thanks, Janelle Martin
