Eleanor Snyder

Crittenton Location: Wheeling, West Virginia ()

Timeframe:

1946-1947

Search Details:

I am looking for my late father’s biological mother named Eleanor Snyder (maiden name). I believe she has passed, though I can’t find her obituary. I do not know who his biological father was. Eleanor was born in 1918 in Mannington, WV and was staying at the Crittenton home in 1946-1947. She had my father (John Fitzgerald, adopted name) on 4/11/47 at Wheeling Hospital around the age of 29. My father was adopted by John and Edna Fitzgerald of Cottageville/Ravenswood, WV. I have submitted my DNA to 23&Me and came up with a match with a possible 1st cousin/uncle who was also adopted in Wheeling WV, though he doesn’t know a name for either birth parent. He is 55 or 56 I believe. My dad would have been 73 this April.
I believe Eleanor’s parents were AJ (possibly Arley) and Mary Snyder of Mannington or Lincoln County area. I believe Eleanor had at least 5 sisters/1 brother.

If anyone has any information on Eleanor or her family, or knows who my father’s biological father, please contact me. My father desperately wanted to make a connection with his birth family, but unfortunately he passed away before he could do so. I would love to connect with someone who can help solve my father’s and our family’s puzzle.
Thank you for reading.
