My name is Jennifer (Snoots) Pidgeon and I'm working on the Snoots family. They lived in Loudoun Co., VA and one Snoots, Henry went to Muskingum Co., Ohio in the 1830's. There are also many people named Snoots in Frederick Co., MD.

I have 2 Snoots lines on this page. John Snoots born 1799, Henry Snoots born 1796, both in Loudoun Co., VA. Henry went to Muskingum Co. Ohio in the 1830s. Its possible that John and Henry were brothers, and if not brothers, than certainly cousins. John Snoots is my gggg grandfather, and I'm descended through his son Jonas.

I have also added several of the smaller Snoots lines that I cannot connect into the other 2, but are cousins somehow. All are in the Loudoun Co. area. You will find these lines as .rtf files in the "Related Files" section below.

And thanks to everyone who gets in touch. I may be really slow in replying sometimes, but I appreciate everything. This web site wouldn't have nearly as much stuff if it weren't for the genorosity of Larry Blair, Tami Bowman, Dawn Bradley, Judy Campbell, the Cox family (Ken, Gail, David), Kathy Cross, Alma Dade, Edie Daugherty, Patty Davis, Rich Demory, Pat Duncan, John Freed, Bob Harrington, Lisa Havens, Vera Hillis, Carroll Hope, Ada Hubbard, Amanda Kvitkovskyi, Doug Kreis, Ed Looker, Candy Poole, Sharmin Pool-Bak, Julie Rice, Denny Shirer, W.H. Smith, Rev. Art and Sue Snoots, Lawrence Snoots, Sebrina Snoots, Tom Stride, Lorraine Williams and Fran Work. Thanks so much. Thanks also to the friendly folks at C. Burr Artz Library in Frederick MD, the Frederick MD Historical Society & Thomas Balch Library in Leesburg VA. I also highly reccomend subscribing to Newspaper Archive.com, which now has a selection of Zanesville, Coshocton, Frederick and DC newspapers.

ANYONE WITH ANY INFO PLEASE CONTACT ME! Would really like more Snoots pictures to share.

*****************UPDATED AUG. 21, 2006*********************

Descendants of Eliza Ann Waddell Brady Jenkins (1839-1920), which will be of interest to descendants of Katie B. Jenkins Snoots (1867-1955), wife of Jonas Snoots' son Alonzo. I have used Eliza for the tree instead of her husband James Jenkins. Eliza was married twice, and I wanted to include those children by her first husband, who died a POW at the end of the Civil War.
