I am descended from Fronica (Veronica) Snavely, born in Lebanon Co. PA, who died in Dauphin Co. 3-24-1806. She was the daughter of Casper Snevely, b. in Zurich, Switzerland in 1702, who came to PA with his family sometime before the Revolution. (He served in the army.) The history of the Snavely family in Switzerland goes back to the mid-1600's. Other spellings were Schnebli, Schnewli, Schnebly. Casper's second wife was Verena Dups, born in Zurich, died in Lancaster Co. PA. They had several children besides Veronica, my ancestor, including sons John Henry Snevely, Hans Conrad Snevely, and Hans Casper Snevely, one of whom might have been the ancestor of your George. There was another brother, Jacob, who died in Switzerland as an infant, and one of the surviving brothers might have used the name Jacob in his family. My Veronica married Henry Lowmiller, who also died in Dauphin Co. So, if any of this sounds interesting to you, let me know. I'd be happy to send you the brief excerpts from the Snavely book that I have.
