Snyder, Peter

Snyder, Peter, a Presbyterian minister, was born in Schoharie, N.Y., Oct. 18, 1814. He graduated at Union College, Schenectady, N.Y., in 1836; studied theology one year at Princeton Seminary, N.J., and two years at Union Seminary, New York city; was licensed by New York Third Presbytery in 1839, and in 1840 was ordained by Rockaway Presbytery, and afterwards labored two years at Whippany, N.J.; two years at New Rochelle, N.Y., then at Cairo, Greene Co., N.Y.; and the remainder of his ministerial service, sixteen years, at Watertown, N.Y., where he died, Dec. 13, 1863. Mr. Snyder was a thorough scholar, and his reading extensive, few men being better versed in current literature, and none more devoted to the moral, religious, and educational movements of the day. From his birth he suffered from an optical infirmity; but, although never using his own or another's pen in preparing for the pulpit, his discourses were always systematic, well digested, and specially eloquent. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1864, p. 323. (J.L.S.)
