On the 1900 USA census Dominick, born 1828, and Martha, born 1843,Canada,  have 0 and 0 for children.  Her Father born in Canada, Mother born in Scotland.  Immigrated in 1852. Currently living Branciforte, Santa Cruz. Married 24 years.

Her birth date not 1838 - is the census wrong?

There is a Dominic Schnietzler around the same age in Santa Cruz in 1870 who was married to someone else and had a son named Henry the same age as the one in the voter registration - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MNX9-F8H

This may be the death of Mary who was apparently the wife of Dominic in 1870 - https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/83365741

Henry D. Snitzler was buried in the same cemetery - https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/94331529/henry-d.-snitzler

Henry on the California death index - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VPDM-XMV

Henry in 1900 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M9GV-3YP
1910 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MVGG-P1S
1920 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MH42-GJ5

This may be the marriage record of Dominic & Mary - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K8DK-HKK

There are a bunch of mentions of these Snitzlers in the Santa Cruz papers here - https://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc  A Joseph Snitzler died at his father's home in Santa Cruz in 1897, so that may be the brother of Henry.

The newspaper index from the Santa Cruz library has some mentions of Snitzlers also - https://www.santacruzpl.org/gsscc_newspaper_index/search_results/title/?q=snitzler

found online this little info

Martha and Dominic Schnitzler vs. Joseph L. Ehos, administrator of -ths estate of Joseph Enos, deceased Certified copy of decree quieting title of plaintiff Martha Schnitzler to lot on north side of Soquel Av., Santa Cruz, adjoining Branciforte School lot.

And yes I believe the census may be wrong for if Martha was born 1843 and Immigrated in 1852 to U.S.A. and been married 24 years this would make her 9 years old so census must be wrong, she was born in 1838 in Belledune N.B. Canada and she died in 1924 in Black Land New Brunswick Canada and is buried in Dalhousie New Brunswick Canada.
