Samuel Comstock Snyder
Some sources place him in the 1848 Willard Richards company, but there is reason to doubt the accuracy of those sources because they are not contemporary. His name does appear on the 1849 Allen Taylor company report. Another evidence that he didn't come to Salt Lake in 1848 is that his name doesn't appear on the list of those who were allotted land that year.
He traveled with his family, his brother's family, and his mother. His married daughters also traveled with the company with their husbands and children.
