Jacob and Mary Musser of Beaver Co., PA

I recently obtained a copy of the death certificate of Evaline Musser Fosnaught/Fausnaught, daughter of Jacob Musser and his wife Mary of Beaver Co., PA.

The certificate lists this piece of information:

Names and places of birth of Evaline's parents.

John Musser - State of Maryland
Mary Snyder - Do not know

This leads me to believe that Jacob's name may have been John Jacob Musser and Mary was obviously Mary Snyder.

I feel the place of birth for Jacob/John may be incorrect, as Jacob lists his birthplace as Pennsylvania, but I have long suspected that he was from near Maryland in PA.

I know Evaline is the child of Jacon and Mary, as she is mentioned as such in Jacob's will in 1874.

In the larger Musser family, there is an Eve Musser (daughter of Samuel Musser and his wife Anna Maria "Mary" who were from York Co., PA and settled and died in Columbiana Co., OH), who married a Michael Snyder (son of Abraham Snyder/Snider and Elizabeth Hasler from Lancaster PA who settled and died in Beaver Co., PA).

Eve and Michael seem like good candidates to be siblings/cousins to Jacob/Mary.

Does anyone have any additional information on Mary Snyder/Snider?
