Part of the original homestead was deeded to Ann Eliza Mahala Snidow Ray,
daughter of William and Elizabeth Snidow, and the cemetery was referred to
as the Ray Burying Ground at that point.

Article by Tammy Collier:
Searching for the Grave of William Lucas Snidow
I had been playing around with the idea of going to Kansas to meet a newly found cousin.
I made contact with Joann Cerovich Howell in September 2006. My great grandmother
Barbara Cerovich Brooks brother John Peter Cerovich is Joann's father. Our love of
genealogy has formed a bond for which I am forever grateful. We talked many hours on
the phone planning the things we wanted to do on my trip to Kansas. At the top of the list,
was to go to Weaubleau, Hickory County, Missouri. We wanted to find the "Old Family
Homestead" just south of Weaubleau. As a member of The Daughters of the American
Revolution, I wanted to fulfill a goal to preserve and document the graves of "Our family".
My plan was to locate and photograph the graves of William Lucas Snidow and his wife
Elizabeth Campbell Brown Snidow. William Lucas is the grandson of Revolutionary
patriot Jacob Snidow of Virginia.
At this time I had only two concerns. The first was if Joann age 75 and I age 48 would be
able to hike about in the woods. The second was coming across a snake in the woods. I
worked on mapping out our trip. I originally thought we would simply drive to the "Family
Homestead" farm. It seemed like a simple enough task. Boy, was I wrong! I had found
directions in the Roman Snidow Ancestors and Descendants Book that was written in 1971
but the directions did not contain any address. I tried to "Map quest" the location but was
unable to locate the site. The local auto club could not assist me either. Next I contacted
Ginger at the Hickory County Historical Society in Hermitage, Mo. I gave her the directions,
and asked if she could give me more specific ones? Ginger informed me that she had no
idea of this location. She told me she would send me a plat map and to find someone from
the area to help me out. When the map arrived Ginger had made a note to look in section 30.
Since I had no other information at this time, the map was no help at all. We were discouraged
and doubted if we would be able to find the graves after all. What next I asked myself? I felt
I had to do everything I could to locate more information. This would probably be the only time
I would be able to travel to the area to look for the graves and the Old Family Homestead.
Then, my brain kicked into gear and I remembered seeing a posting from 2005 on the Snidow
Forum from Johnna Quick about the graves. I contacted Johnna and asked her if she had directions.
She responded quickly explaining she had grown up in the area and had tried to find the graves
many times by herself but had been unable to locate them. She thought they no longer existed.
Johnna had posted her notes on the internet from a book. I provided her with the old direction
we had as a last attempt to locate them before giving up. I received an email back from her
telling me to look at the attachment. She had located a plat map from 1930 that showed the
homestead. In 1930 the land was owned by William's son Carl Snidow. To my surprise it was
indeed located in section 30. I compared the 1930 map with the 2007 map, it showed that a
Mr. Leslie Stewart now owned the land. After some detective work I was able to locate a phone
number and I called Mr. Stewart. I tried several times but I was unable to reach anyone let
alone an answering machine. As I sat at my desk, I tried to figure out what I would say when
I did reach him. The phone suddenly rang! Mr. Stewart had caller id, he had seen my call and
called me back! I excitedly blurted out my story stumbling over my words. His response was
"I do own the Old Snidow homestead and the graves are still there." We talked for some time
and then we made plans for us to visit on the 29th of October.
When Joann and I arrived Mr. Stewart greeted us warmly. He is a very polite, good looking
man who I believe to be about 35 years old. He gave us some back ground information on
the "Old Homestead". Leslie told us he had all the land abstracts from the previous owners
of the land. They had been passed on to each new owner by the previous owner. Williams's
original homestead was 120 acres. Then, in the late 1800's William wife Elizabeth had been
deeded 20 more acres by the government. Following the death of Carl Snidow the land was
sold at auction for non-payment of 3 years of property taxes. The land changed hands several
times since then. Leslie Stewart has owned the land since 1996. Leslie has been buying up
surrounding farms to return it to its original size. The farm is now 140 acres. I presented
Leslie with a book of all known descendants of William and Elizabeth to date. It contained
many documents including birth records, obituaries, family pictures, and William's Civil War
records. We requested if he ever sells the land, he pass the book on to the new owner so
that they too would know about the people buried on the land.
He told us to follow him in his truck and he would lead us to the grave site. This action was
completely out of character for me. I don't like to go anywhere unless I know where I am
going, let alone follow a stranger into the woods! But all I thought about was finding the graves.
We headed down a dirt road that started out east but quickly went this way and that though the
woods. Sometimes we even drove on grass areas. After some time we stopped in a clearing.
In the forest area to the left of us we could see what appeared to be a circle of trees with a
clearing in the center. Mr. Stewart had worked to clean the area where the graves were located.
We followed him over fallen trees and brush. There in the center we found a 4 sided pillar type
monument about 4 feet tall. It was in surprisingly good shape. At the base of the stone was the
Snidow name. On the left side was William's information and to the right was Elizabeth's.
Transcriptions of headstones:
W. L. Snidow
Feb 3, 1829
Sept 23, 1903
a loving Husband
a Father Dear
a kind Friend has
been buried here.
E. C. Snidow
June 24, 1832
Mar 9, 1906
a loving Wife
a Mother Dear
a kind Friend has
been buried here.
At the foot of each grave was a simple concrete stone with the initials of WLS & ECS (this was
very hard to read and it did not photograph at all). There are 2 graves to the right of them.
They both are simply marked with a pointed stone at the head of the grave. At the foot of the
grave was a smaller stone. There were no other markings. It was previously reported in the
Roman Snidow Book that these were the graves of their children Ann Eliza and Carl Shannon.
When he cleared the area, Mr. Stewart found what looked like a piece of a pelvic bone. He had
carefully placed it at the base of the monument. We examined it and photographed it. At this
time, it does not look like the graves had ever been disturbed so we are not sure what the bone
belongs to. We photographed the graves and walked around for some time looking for any signs
of the house. The Graves have been reported to be one quarter mile from where house once stood.
A grandchild who would stay overnight recalled how spooky it was to look out of the upstairs bedroom
window and see the graves in the moonlight. It was disappointing to realize there was no sign of any
of the old home itself.
After leaving the grave site Mr. Stewart took us over to the next town of Flemington. He reported that
the last Snidow who died was buried there. He did not know his name. Leslie stated the man was to
be buried on the homestead but due to the weather they were unable to get back in the woods so he
had to be buried at the Flemington cemetery. We walked the entire cemetery and finally located the
grave. To our surprise it was Carl Shannon Snidow son of William and Elizabeth. He died in September
of 1944. So who is buried in the grave? As you can see we now have a family mystery "Who is in the
fourth grave at the Old Homestead?"
Since we left there, I have discovered Ann Eliza Mahala Snidow lived with Carl on the 1910 census. On
the 1920 census she was married to a Rolla Ray. She married sometime between 1910 and 1920. I have
located her death certificate. On the certificate it states that Carl took care of Ann Eliza's burial and it
confirms that she is buried on the farm. She died 12/8/1926. We are thinking that possibly Ann Eliza's
husband Rolla who is in the fourth grave. Ann Eliza was listed as a widow on her death certificate. Rolla
died somewhere between 1920 census and Eliza's death of December of 1926. We are trying to locate his
obituary. Now we must play detective to solve our case. We will let you know if we ever find out.
As we settled down for the night and we talked about out great adventure. If not for our love of genealogy
we would never have experienced this. However, we suddenly thought of how two women sought out and
went willingly to the home and then into the woods with a perfect stranger. Not only that, but we did not
leave a name or address with anyone as to where we were going. We very easily could never have been
heard from again. There could have been two more unmarked graves. Would we still have gone, now that
we have thought of that? You bet your life! We have memories that will last a lifetime. Luckily for us, we
were not actually in any danger. However, we would recommend two things, be smart and be safe! Make
sure to leave information with someone and make plans to check in as you complete your daily adventure.
Exploring is fun, but use common sense and be careful. Good luck in your adventures and happy hunting!
It was very clear that without Leslie's help; never in a million years would we have found the graves! We
would have been lost in the forest forever, never to be heard from again. However I have faith that at
least we would have been with family on our "Old Family Homestead" We will forever be grateful for the
help and time Leslie spent with us. Thank you so much Mr. Leslie Stewart.

In transcribing old newspapers, I found the following notice:
The Hermitage Gazette, 12/18/1895
Married, at the bride's home in Weaubleau last Wednesday evening,
Mr. J. B. Snidow and Miss Alice Charlton, 'Squire Woodford officiating.
The groom is a young man of high aspirations and the bride is one of
our most estimable young ladies. Their friends all join in wishing them
a successful and happy life.
