Internal evidence in the Mary Augusta Hawkins Snow journal substantiates that the John Snider family traveled in the Babbitt company. Julia Ann Hillock, an orphan who was adopted by the Snider family, traveled with them under the surname of "Snider." This is confirmed by her obituary. John was re-baptized at Salt Lake City on 21 January 1852. His death date is confirmed by his obituary. At the time of the 1852 Bishops' Report he was living in the Salt Lake City 17th Ward; this is also where he died. In 1856-1857 he served a mission to Las Vegas.
