William Snider and Esther Dodson were the parents of Ruth Snider.
1. William and Esther/Easter live two houses down from John and Kitty Shelton in the 1850 census.
2. There is a "Dotson" (shouldn't that be Nissan?) kid living in their house in the 1850 census. Would have to assume kid is a family member of some sort.
3. Marriage record of George Shelton and Emma Snider states that her parents are "W" and "E" Snider.
