I don't see anything on the Clair side. Zolomon's father was a William Clair. I will look at your Sniders.
Looks like Simon P, was the son of George, who was likely son of George Snider in the 1820 census. Simon's mother was likely Anna Stockton. None of this sounds promising.

Why do you suspect you have NA ancestry? Family history?

Judging by this photo, I do not think he was of Native American ancestry.

Also, his wife's maiden name was Hinkle, and she was born in Pennslyvania, so it is possible she was either of German or Dutch ancestry.
