About Sylvia Ameretta Snyder (Meacham)

Biographical Summary:

Sylvia Ameret Meacham Snyder (1820-1894) She was a Utah Pioneer, crossing the plains in 1851.

Sylvia was married 23 Mar 1839 to Dominicus Carter as his first polygamous wife. Together they had two children: Eratus Francis Carter & Isaac Morley Carter. Polygamy didn't work for her and they divorced.

On 3 Nov 1855 she married John Snider, who was a widower. A history of Sylvia's son Erastus Francis Carter says that John Snider "was a grand man and a good father to Erastus." She had two children with John Snider: Martin Henry Snider & John Hyrum Snider.

CHILDREN: Many sources attribute several additional children to Sylvia Meacham & Dominicus Carter, but these children (Harriett, Arthur, Nellie, Louisa, and Amelia) were all born many years after Sylvia left Dominicus. Harriet is documented to be the daughter of Polly Miner. Arthur and Louisa are documented to be the children of Frances Nash. On the list that was purportedly copied from Dominicus Carter's own records Nellie was attributed to Frances Nash, but she is not on the list of children that Frances Nash's mother made. Amelia is attributed to Sylvia Meacham in the book "Carter Pioneers of Provo Utah," but she was born more than a decade after Sylvia had left Dominicus. It is possible that Amelia is actually Cornelia, a daughter of Dominicus and Mary Durfee who was buried 27 August 1867 in the Provo cemetery. Sylvia Meacham WAS NOT the mother of these children.
