David John Snapp was born in May 1840 in Taney County, Missouri. He was the son of Harrison Galifant Snapp and Emily D. Parry. David's great-grandfather, John Snapp, Sr., and his great-great-grandfather, Lawrence Snapp, served in Virginia during the American Revolution.

David's father, Harrison Galifant Snapp, was born in 1812 in Virginia and died about 1863, possibly in Cooper County, Missouri. His mother, Emily D. Parry, was born about 1814 in Virginia and died 24 September 1855 in Forsyth, Taney County, Missouri. They were married 24 September 1836 in Greene County, Tennessee, and in 1939, they settled in Taney County, Missouri. David's siblings were:

Augusta Rose Snapp (1837-1873
Victoria Emily Snapp (1839-after 1870)
Lafayette Dedrick Snapp (1842-1910
Andrew J. ("Bunk") Snapp (1844-1864
Addie Belle Vedora Snapp (1848-1927)
Robert Grant Snapp (1850-1903)
Samuel Harrison Snapp (1854-1886)

In about 1858, David married Mary Ann _____, probably in Taney County, Missouri. David and Mary Ann had two children:

Emily V. ("Emma") Snapp (1859-after 1870)
Sarah Alice Snapp (1860-1943)

David enlisted in Co. E, 3rd Missouri (Confederate) Cavalry on 10 September 1862 in Oregon County, Missouri. He was 22 years old. The officers of Co. E were Andrew J. Thompson, Captain; Francis M. Fullbright, 1st Lieutenant; Greenville L. Hands, 2nd Lieutenant; and Lafayette D. Snapp, 2nd Lieutenant [David's younger brother]. One other younger brother—Private Andrew J. Snapp—also served in Co. E. According to the compiled military service record for David J. Snapp, he was captured and taken as a prisoner of war on 24 October 1864, at Mound City, Linn County, Kansas—the day before the Battle of Mine Creek. After being incarcerated at prisons in St. Louis, Rock Island, Illinois, and Point Lookout, Maryland, David was paroled at James River, Virginia, on 23 March 1865.

It is not known when David's first wife, Mary Ann, died, but by ca.1868, David had married Virginia C. Bagley (born about 1837 in Arkansas; died ca. 1888 in Tom Bean, Grayson County, Texas). David and Virginia had six children (while making their home in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas):

Lafayette Hampton Snapp (1868-before 1910)
Harrison Lee Snapp (1870-1960)
Ida Elizabeth Snapp (1873- 1941)
Albert Clarence Snapp (1877- 1963)
George David Snapp (1879-1928
Addie Lou ("Lulu") Snapp (1882-1966)

The family moved to Tom Bean, Grayson County, Texas, in 1882. Daughter Addie was born in Tom Bean on 9 September 1882.

On 9 May 1886, tragedy struck the Snapp family back in Taney County, Missouri. David's youngest brother, Sam, was shot and killed in Kirbyville by George Washington ("Wash") Middleton, a member of the notorious vigilante group—the Bald Knobbers. He was only 31 years old. Having been widowed twice, five children were orphaned by his Sam's death.

David John Snapp died on 11 January 1918 in Tom Bean, Grayson County, Texas, at the age of 77. He is buried in an unmarked grave at White Mound Cemetery near Tom Bean. His obituary appeared in the Sherman Daily Democrat, Sherman, Texas, on 12 January 1918:

"J. D. Snapp, 80 years of age, and for many years a citizen of the White Mound community, east of Sherman, died yesterday shortly after noon. Funeral services were held this afternoon at 3 o'clock, after which interment was in the White Mound cemetery. Mr. Snapp is survived by the following children, his wife having died thirty years ago: Lee Snapp, Duke, Okla; Mrs. Ida Logue, Springfield, Mo. [should be Ill.]; Bert Snapp, Tom Bean; George Snapp, Roby; Mrs. Lou Howell, Tom Bean. Mr. Snapp came to Texas from Missouri in 1882, and has resided at White Mound since that time. He was a Confederate veteran, having served four years on the southern side in the War Between the States."
