Rev William Morrison I1,2

M, ID# 10327, (15 Apr 1778 - 26 May 1854)
Father:James ? Morrison (6 Dec 1739 - 2 Aug 1829)
Mother:Mary Morrison (27 Mar 1756 - 26 Oct 1842)
Charts:Oma Lavinia Strong lineage
     Rev William Morrison I was born on 15 Apr 1778 at Iredell Co ?, North Carolina. He was the son of James ? Morrison and Mary Morrison. Rev William Morrison I married Elizabeth Snider, daughter of John B. Schnider and Elizabeth March ?, on 16 May 1804 at Blount Co, Tennessee. Rev William Morrison I died on 26 May 1854 at Randolph Co, Alabama, at age 76. He was buried at Shiloh Primitive Baptist Cemetery, Delta, Clay Co, Alabama.
      Rev. William Morrison and Elizabeth Snider are presumed to be Sarah Morrison's parents because they were living in the same Alabama county with Sarah and her family in 1850.

In 1819 a William Morrison was noted on the northeastern tip of Tennessee on Washington Co tax list. In 1820 a William Morrison, perhaps the same man as in the 1819 record and believed to be our ancestor, and a woman presumed to be his wife, both age 26-44, were residing the central part of the state in Murfreesboro, Rutherford Co, TN. Living with them were 1 male under 10 and 1 female age 10 to 15. By 1830 there was a William Morrison age 50-59 and a woman presumed to be his wife, age 40-49, living in regiment 98, Monroe Co, TN. Living with them were 3 males and 1 female under age 5, 1 female age 10-14, one female age 15-19, and a male age 20-29. The only way this family can be the same as the William Morrison in Rutherford Co in 1820 is if the female age 10-14 is not their dau bec she was not there in 1820 and the other children's ages are slipped a little forward and backward because the children's ages do not align exactly from the previous census.

William moved his large family, all born in Tennessee, to Alabama. William reported on the 1850 census he was born in North Carolina; in 1880 his daughter Sarah reported he was born in North Carolina; his son John stated he was born in Tennessee; and his sons Joel, Robert and George reported he was born in Virginia. Because of the consistent mention of Virginia, it is possible William's father was from Virginia. All the children reported their mother Elizabeth was born in Tennessee.

William and Elizabeth were married at the home of John Snider, most likely her father. During the War of 1812 William served as a private in Captain Cowan's Company, Tennessee Militia.

The majority of William and Elizabeth's children were born what was known as "Eastern Tennessee," which includes parts of three major geological divisions— the Blue Ridge on the border with North Carolina in the east, the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians (usually called the "Great Appalachian Valley" or "Tennessee Valley") in the center, and the Cumberland Plateau in the west, bordering Middle Tennessee.

William and Elizabeth's children with their birth dates were listed on find-a-grave with some overlapping birth dates, leading this researcher to carefully research the overlapping dates to attempt to discern if any were not the children of Elizabeth. The children noted in 2016 on the longer list of two lists on find-a-grave appear to all be William's and Elizabeth's, although this analysis does not preclude the possibility of a mistake. Although Sarah and George, for example, are shown born a few months apart, careful research in census records showed the find-a-grave dates were incorrect. However, better aligning Sarah and George's births with their census records caused conflicts with two other siblings births -- James and Andrew. Because custom is often to name some of the first sons after the grandfathers, this researcher realigned James birth to fall after the marriage of the parents when no children were shown born. In summary, the children's reported birth dates were not all accurate and this researcher has realigned the children and their birth dates to correspond with the available censuses, naming customs and common childbirth sequencing.

By 1850 William was living on the Alabama-Georgia border in Randolph Co, AL, adjacent to Cleburne Co, AL with their sons William and Robert, who were both farmers. William was noted as a Baptist minister and both William and Elizabeth were noted as born in NC. They resided next to their son Esquire Morrison, his wife Sarah and their child; their son John and his wife Louisa and children; and a Robert Morrison age 21 born in Tennessee with his wife Martha age 20 who is possibly the son of John; and residing very near their daughter Mary, her husband John Hatton and their family; who was next door to her brother Thomas, noted as the same age as Mary, and his wife Luretta and their family. Living next to them was the Robert Whitfield family into which their son Robert married shortly after. Four years later William senior died, reportedly in Delta, Clay Co, AL or in the adjacent Randolph Co, AL.

William Morrison is a fairly common name and there were other William Morrisons living in North Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama at the same time our ancestor was alive. In 1820 two William Morrisons were living in Dallas Co, AL; these were determined not to be our ancestor because in 1820 our William had between 3 and 5 sons under age 21 depending on their dates of birth and the Williams in Dallas Co had one son each under age 21. Secondary sources and tertiary sources report more William Morrisons in the southeast US. A Quaker named William Morrison was reportedly born 15 Sep 1779 in Orange Co, NC and married Mary Harlan in 1801 in Randolph Co, NC before dying in 1838 in Parke Co, Indiana. A William Hays Morrison was reportedly born in 1767 or 1779 in NC, married Mary Haynes in NC in 1800 and died in 1837 in Dyer Co, TN.

James and Mary Morrison are presumed to be William's parents; James was residing in Iredell Co, NC in 1790, and all of William's siblings were reportedly born in Iredell Co. Although a William Morrision was residing in Iredell Co, NC in 1814 according to the 1812-1814 muster rolls, this is inconsistent with our William and his family living in Tennessee during that period, and thus draws into question whether James Morrision is William's father instead of the father of a different man named William Morrison who resided in Iredell Co as an adult.

Elizabeth Snider1,2

F, ID# 10328, (1789 - 21 Jan 1879)
Father:John B. Schnider (1766 - a Oct 1842)
Mother:Elizabeth March ? (1770 - 1842)
Charts:Oma Lavinia Strong lineage
     Elizabeth Snider was born in 1789 at Tennessee. She was the daughter of John B. Schnider and Elizabeth March ? Elizabeth Snider married Rev William Morrison I, son of James ? Morrison and Mary Morrison, on 16 May 1804 at Blount Co, Tennessee. Elizabeth Snider died on 21 Jan 1879 at Randolph or Clay Co, Alabama. She was buried at Shiloh Primitive Baptist Cemetery, Delta, Clay Co, Alabama.
      In the 1850, 1850 and 1870 Elizabeth Snider reported she was born in Tennessee, thus this researcher ignored the report she was born in Iredel Co, NC. In 1860 Elizabeth Snider was living alone in Rockdale, Randolph Co, AL. Living next door was her son Robert with his wife Elizabeth and her son Esquire and his wife Mary and their families and nearby were her son Thomas, his wife Luretta and their children; her son Mary with her husband John Hatton and family; her son Major Morrison with his wife Kathrine and children; an A. G. Morrison age 26 [born ~1834] with his wife who was also born in Tennessee so he is likely Elizabeth's grandson; a W. E. Morrison age 20 born in Alabama, with his wife Sarah, who is four years too young to be Elizabeth's son William with his wife Sally, so W. E. is likely her grandson.

By 1870 Elizabeth was living in the household of her son Robert and his family in Delta, Clay Co, AL; the household was enumerated as Marrison instead of Morrison. Living nearby in 1870 was an M. J. Morrison age 51 born in Tennessee who was most likely her son Major Kager/Jager born in 1818 and age 51 in 1870. Major was residing with his wife and children.

This researcher believes in using data from unsourced online family trees and then working to prove the data is correct by finding primary and secondary sources. In general online trees -- ones without obvious error and inconsistencies -- used by this researcher have proved to be accurate over time as more records were found. However, for Elizabeth Snider, because she was not included in her reported father's will, there is no proof either her parents or any of her ancestors noted online at this time are correct.

John B. Schnider1,2

M, ID# 10329, (1766 - a Oct 1842)
Father:Johann Georg Schneider (a 1728 - c 20 Oct 1785)
Mother:Elizabeth Pence (c 1750 - a 1782)
Charts:Oma Lavinia Strong lineage
     John B. Schnider was born in 1766 at Dunmore Co, Virginia. He was the son of Johann Georg Schneider and Elizabeth Pence. John B. Schnider married Elizabeth March ? c 1789. John B. Schnider died a Oct 1842 at Monroe Co, Tennessee. His estate was probated at Monroe Co, Tennessee.
      The will of John Snider of Monroe Co, TN does not mention our ancestor, his reported daughter Elizabeth Snider Strong, who was alive at the time his will was written; that omission is a major concern for proving this John Snider was indeed her father. Even if he believed that his daughter was well provided for, it would be unusual not to mention her in his will. Elizabeth was said to have married at John Snider's home in Blount Co, TN, although the woman marrying could have been a niece of that John Snider's, as opposed to his daughter.

Based on census and marriage records, John's brothers George and Frederick both moved from Shenandoah Co, VA to Monroe Co, TN no later than 1821 and 1830 respectively. Furthermore the son of John's brother Peter also married in adjacent Blount Co in 1831. Therefore it is logical our ancestor John was the John Snider living in Blount and then Monroe counties in Tennessee close to his brothers.

John Snider was noted on the 1800 and 1801 Blount Co, TN tax list. In 1819 he and his brother George were executors on his sister Mary's will in Blount Co.

Because John had already established a presence in Tennessee -- at least for tax purposes, it was unlikely but not impossible he was the John Snider, age 45 and over, on the 1820 Pine Forge, Shenandoah Co, VA census living with 1 male and 1 female under 10, a female age 16-25 and a male age 26-44; these children's ages align with the 1830 census of John Snider in Blount Co, TN, so these two records could represent the same man, but again it is unlikely. In 1840 there was a John B. Snider, age 40-49 noted as an engineer, in Shenandoah Co, VA with 1 male age 10-14, 2 males and 1 female age 15-19 and his presumed wife age 40-49; this John Snider in 1840 is too young to be the man present in Shenandoah Co in 1820, so there were at least two John Sniders in Shenandoah Co.

In 1830 John Snider, noted as John Eleneder age 60-69, which was consistent with his age progression since birth, was living in Blount Co, TN with 1 male and 1 female age 5-9, 1 female age 10-14, 1 male age 15-19 and 1 female age 20-29, and 1 female age 40-49, who was likely his wife.

By 1840 John Snider age 70-79 was still in Blount Co living with his presumed wife age 60-69 and 1 male age 10-14, 1 male and 1 female age 15-19 and 1 male age 20-29; this is the same family as in the 1830 census with the oldest daughters gone and one new child. Most likely the youngest child was that of his wife and she is now actually age 50-59, consistent with the 1830 census.

If the oldest woman in the household for both the 1830 and 1840 Blount Co censuses was John's wife Elizabeth, who was alive when he wrote his will in 1841, and she somewhat accurately reported her age, she was born about 1780. This means John and Elizabeth did not marry in 1785 and begin having a family then. However Elizabeth is thought to have under-reported her age for the censuses and was likely born in 1770.

The will of John Snider: I, John Snider do make and publish this my last will and testament. Hereby revoking and making void all other wills at any time made. First, I direct that my funeral expenses and all my debts be paid after my death as possible, out of any monies that I may be possessed of or money first come in the hands of my executor.

Johann Georg Schneider1,2

M, ID# 10331, (a 1728 - c 20 Oct 1785)
Father:Unknown Schneider (a 1702 - )
Charts:Oma Lavinia Strong lineage
     Johann Georg Schneider was born a 1728 at Wuerttemberg ?, Germany. He was the son of Unknown Schneider. Johann Georg Schneider married Ursula (Unknown) c 1749. Johann Georg Schneider immigrated on 17 Oct 1749 to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He married Elizabeth Pence, daughter of Peter or Petter Pence and Mary (Unknown), on 17 Dec 1765 at Lancaster, Chester or Lycoming Co?, Pennsylvania. Johann Georg Schneider died c 20 Oct 1785 at Shenandoah Co, Virginia. His estate was probated in 1785 at Shenandoah Co, Virginia.
      Only online family traditions and circumstanial evidence provided information about Johann Georg Schneider. Faye Burrows Hedgepeth composed the family story that provides the only and best data on our ancestor. Family legend is the immigrant ancestor, Johnn Georg Schneider, was born before 1733 in Wuerttemberg, Germany and died circa 20 Oct 1785 in Shenandoah Co, VA. The tradition was Johann Georg Schneider with two brothers Johann Jacob and Martin migrated from Germany about Jan 1749 to Rotterdam, Holland and thence to Cowes, England. In Cowes it was stated they worked as shipbuilders under the sponsorship of the Quakers (Friends) for a period of about seven months. From this employment they were able to pay for passage to Philadelphia, PA, debarking there 17 Oct 1749. Two ships landed in Philadelphia on 17 Oct 1749, the Dragon with Daniel Nichols, Master, and the ship Fane, mastered by Captain William Hyndman. Johann Georg and his brothers were listed in Pennsylvania German Pioneers (Strossburger and Hinke, Vol I, p. 424) as being on the Dragon. Georg was assumed to have been born circa 1728/33 as the law at that time required a ship captain to list, by name, his male passengers above the age of 16 years. Since Georg and his brothers were listed by name, they were probably born by 1733. The birth of Georg would have occurred by at least 1728 if Georg was of legal age (21) in 1749. Family tradition continues that this Schneider family moved inland from Philadelphia to the Susquehanna Valley, PA, locating near a Quaker meeting house in Columbia, PA, where they stayed for 10 years. In early 1760 they moved to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where they bought property, their children were born, and they remained the rest of their lives. (History of Johann Georg Schneider by Faye Burrows Hedgepeth, http://mv.ancestry.com/viewer/00ce8629-a7d3-49bc-85bc-4479223223b0/3895958/-1351160537)

In addition to the tradition that Johann Georg arrived in Philadelphia in 1749, a man in Philadelphia by the same name married an Ursula about 1749 and had at least four children. A 1755 St Michael's Lutheran Church register in Philadelphia, PA shows Joh [sic] Georg Schneider age 26 and his wife Ursula age 27, noted as having been in America 6 years and having 3 sons and 1 daughter; thus this was likely our immigrant John Georg Schneider whom the family tradition stated arrived in 1749. This researcher was always concerned our ancestor's reported marriage to Elizabeth Pence came too late in Johann George's life, so Ursula was likely a first wife. Or this could be a different Johann George Schneider.

Nothing is known about the woman presumed to be Johann Georg's second wife Elizabeth Pence or their children from Virginia records; only when Johann Georg and Elizabeth got to Tennessee were records available. With insufficient data, nothing more can be done to solidify Johann Georg's data or identify his parents at this time. Once his birth date and town of birth are proven, more research can be accomplished on this line based on already available data.

Georg reportedly married Elizabeth Pence circa 1765, probably in Lycoming Co, PA. Elizabeth was born circa 1750 and died after 1782 probably in Shenandoah Co, VA. Georg and Elizabeth reportedly had at least seven children and all were believed to have been born in Dunmore Co, later named Shenandoah Co, VA.

Georg was a farmer and reportedly served his country in the Revolutionary War as a patriot by supplying meat to the militia. George was approved by the DAR as supporting the revolution in 1967 (Vol. II DAR Patriot Index) but this approval was revoked later due to lack of documentation.

Georg could be the John Snider enumerated on the 1783 Shenandoah Co, VA census, but he generally used the name George as opposed to Johann Georg or John. The 1783 record is not that of his son John because his son had not reached the age of majority. A John Snider was on the 1820 Pine Forge, Shenandoah Co, VA census and before then George's son John was already noted living in TN, so either


there was a second John Snider in Shenandoah Co.

Georg left a will dated 9 April 1781: Will of Johann Georg Schneider, In the Name of God Amen, I George Schneider, being affliked by sickness being indisposed do make my will being in my right sences-Thanks be to God for it-I do leave my estate as follows. I do bequeath to my lawful wife Elizabeth Schneider my hole estate and prosestions that I do persefs. My eldest son, I do bequeath to him one shilling strling a demand to be paid out of my estate this being his legacy after my death. I George Schneider do acknowledge this my desire being my last Will and Testament in the Name of God Amen. X (George Schneider's mark.) Witnesses: Jacob ??, Phillip Summer, Conrad Bennton. Will probated in 1785, Shenandoah Co, VA.

Johann George Schneider was a popular name in the 1700s with numerous same-named immigrants coming to America simultaneously with our ancestor and settling in Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, North Carolina, Missouri, etc. There were several Johann Georg Schneiders in Philadelphia at the same time, appearing in the census records in 1740, 1749-1754, 1765 and 1774. A Johann Georg Schneider was already established in Philadelphia as early as 1740 and paying tax nine years before our ancestor arrived there. As a result it is impossible to ascertain which tax and marriage records belong to which man. Furthermore, numerous online trees claim the same men's records and spouses, so care must be taken in making any assumptions. This reseacher concluded it is impossible at this time to tell if our ancestor's parents were Hans Jakob Schneider and Alta Klein, Annae Barbarae or Regula Hartmann, or J. W. Schneider and Maria Ester Feuerbachin -- all of whom had sons with the name Johann Georg during the same time. For example, a Johann Georg was born 30 Jul 1727 in Wurttemberger Hof, Schwabish Hall, Baden-Wurttemberg,Germany to Hanss Joseph Schneider and Annae Barbarae and registered in Unterrengenbach Evangelische Kirche, Jagstkreis, Wurttemberg a Lutheran church. Needless to say, there were also many men named Johann Georg Schneider born at the same time all over Germany who never came to America and died in Germany with similar lifespans.

     Elizabeth Pence was born c 1750 at Lycoming Co, Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of Peter or Petter Pence and Mary (Unknown). Elizabeth Pence married Johann Georg Schneider, son of Unknown Schneider, on 17 Dec 1765 at Lancaster, Chester or Lycoming Co?, Pennsylvania. Elizabeth Pence died a 1782.
      Elizabeth Pence was probably born around 1750 and may be the daughter of a Petter (Peter) senior and Mary Pence.

In "History of Lycoming Co, PA," 1882, John Meginness mentioned Peter Pence, a famous Indian fighter who died in 1812. Legend is that Peter and Mary Pence lived in Lycoming Co, PA. In 1996 Michael Glen Snider of St. Peters, MO corresponded by e-mail with a Pence researcher and genealogist, who stated the Peter Pence in Lycoming Co was not the famous Indian fighter and Revolutionary War guide. The researcher did not have any information on this Peter Pence having a daughter named Elizabeth.

The surname Pence is German in origin. Some believe the name was Bentz and in pronunciation to immigration clerks it sounded like Pence and was written thus. Pences are often found in early histories of Pennsylvania and Virginia. Other Pences found were George, Jacob, Jacob Jr., Michael, and another Peter, all from Virginia. A Peter Pence served in the Pennsylvania militia in the Revolutionary War and is listed in the DAR Patriot Index (1966), but it is unknown if he is of this line as there were several other Peter Pences. (DAR Patriot Index, Vol. 1, pg. 525, 1966.)

Father:Johann Georg Schneider (a 1728 - c 20 Oct 1785)
Mother:Elizabeth Pence (c 1750 - a 1782)
     Rev George W. Schneider was born on 1 Jan 1769 at Dunmore (Shenandoah) Co, Virginia. He was the son of Johann Georg Schneider and Elizabeth Pence. Rev George W. Schneider married Mary Walker in 1790 at Tennessee. Rev George W. Schneider died on 31 Aug 1846 at Vonore, Monroe Co, Tennessee, at age 77.
      George W. Snider was the son of a farmer and had few advantages of an education in early life. His father moved to Tennessee while young Snider was still in his teens. In the fall of 1790 he was married to a Miss Mary Walker and settled near Little River, in Blount County. This happy couple, like "Isaac and Rebecca," lived and toiled together for nearly fifty-six years.

In 1797 George professed a hope in Christ and united with the Presbyterians, in which connection he continued about fifteen years, leading a pious and consistent life. He had never studied the question of baptism, however, and upon a careful examination of that question he joined the Baptist Church at Miller's Cove, and was baptized on 27 Jun 1812 by Elijah Rogers. On 21 Aug 1812 he was "ordained deacon." He was licensed to preach 27 Mar 1813, and on 25 Mar 1814 was ordained to the full work of the ministry by a council composed of Richard Wood, Thomas Hudiburg, Dr. Thomas Hill and Elijah Rogers.

In 1817 George was called to be pastor of Miller's Cove, and a little later of the Six-Mile Church. In the fall of 1821 he moved to Monroe Co, TN and settled on a beautiful farm in the "Hiwassee Purchase." Here he spent the remainder of his life, serving as pastor for many years at Hopewell, Big Creek, Chestua and Tellico churches, the last named becoming the Madisonville Church on 22 Mar 1828, having recognized the "presbytery, Elders George Snider and James Myers." From July of the same year this church for four years had the services of George Snider and Daniel Buckner as co-pastors.

Brother Snider "had revivals in all his churches," it is said, and he was instrumental in finding and bringing into the Lord's service several useful ministers. The first introductory sermon before the Hiwassee Association in 1824, one year after its organization, was preached by Elder George Snider. The same year he was chosen Moderator of that body, and served in that capacity as long as the body had an existence, some five or six years. He was Moderator of the 1830 Convention which created the "Sweetwater United Baptist Association," and served as Moderator of the new body from fourteen to sixteen years - up to within a year of his death.
