THOMAS SNOW

Walker County Alabama Ancestral Homesteads book by Bill & Sue Tubbs shows the following for a Thomas Snow. I assume that this is the correct Thomas Snow according to dates.

79.62 acres, E1/2NW1/4, Sec 5, 9/10/1825, Township 16S, Range 7W, PG. 66.
79.62 acres, W1/2NW1/4, Sec. 5, 1/2/1832, Township 16S, Range 7W, PG. 66.
The above land lies about 1 mile North of Pleasant Field, Al.

Many researchers list Thomas Snow's father as Peter Snow, however, after extensive research Charles and Gail Snow have concluded that this is probably not the correct line. Dr. Peter Snow was not married when Thomas was born, and he and Elizabeth Adams show no children on the 1790 census. Chuck and Gail Snow have also been in touch with someone who read the book, "Letters of Dr. Peter Snow" - this one being the son of Dr. Peter and brother to the three Snows who settled in the Tuscaloosa area. Nowhere in any of these family letters is mention of a Thomas. Another thing to consider, Thomas was born in North Carolina and Dr. Peter lived in Massachusetts. - Gail Snow. A possible candidate for Thomas Snow's father is Ebenezer Snow. Ebenezer Snow's line is used as Thomas Snow's father for this report, however, should not be considered proven.

Ebenezer Snow was born in Delaware in 1758, a descendent of Nicholas, who lived in Surry County, North Carolina and lived in Tennessee in several counties. It is reported that he had a son Thomas about 1786 in North Carolina. There is a possibility that our Thomas was from the line of Ebenezer. Apparently Ebenezer's wife, Sarah Sally Wicher, was Cherokee or Choctaw. One of our Snow family members remembers that at least one ancestor was to have been of Indian origin, probably Cherokee. - Gail Snow. Sarah Sally WICKER was born in 1761 in North Carolina. She died after 1850 in Morgan Creek County, Tennessee. Ebenezer SNOW and Sarah Sally WICKER had the following children: Thomas Snow
