Elizabeth Amy (Kirby) Snodgrass and her children.
Hello and welcome to Snodgrass Footprints. My name is Omer Leslie Snodgrass II.
My wife Catherine and I live in Twentynine Palms, California. I am a genealogist and
she is a retired paralegal specialist, a retired writer, and now a ceramic artist..
My primary surnames of interest are:
SNODGRASS, KIRBY, STOHR, STOEHR, STARR, DeLAY, THOMAS, ALLER, OLLER, SETZER,
TALBOTT, OAKMAN, EYER, McDOUGAL, HOBART, LaHUE, LEHEW, FLESHMAN, ROSSMÜLLER, ROSSMILLER, REMMERS.
However, I also research many other related surnames. My Snodgrass line currently
goes back to John Snodgrass who is said to have been born in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania on 9 January 1818.
John married Elizabeth Amy Kirby on 6 March 1851 in Champaign County, Ohio.
John and Elizabeth had ten children, all of whom lived to adulthood. They were:
- Thomas Eldrege Snodgrass
b. 15 Feb 1852, Urbana, Champaign County, Illinois
- Laura Almeda Snodgrass
b. 10 Feb 1854, Champaign County, Ohio
- Sarah Hannah Snodgrass
b. 12 May 1856, Shelby County, Ohio
- Price Lafayette Snodgrass
b. 18 Jan 1858, Ohio
- Mary Olivia Snodgrass
b. 6 Aug 1861, Shelby County, Ohio
- John Grant Snodgrass
b. 3 Nov 1864, Logan County, Ohio
- Julia Jane Snodgrass
b. 8 Nov 1866, Logan County, Ohio
- Edith Lizzie Snodgrass
b. 18 Aug 1871, Logan County, Ohio
- Edwin Forrest Snodgrass
b. 18 Aug 1871, Logan County, Ohio
- Erroll Kirby Snodgrass
b. 2 May 1874, Nemaha County, Nebraska
John, Elizabeth, and family moved to Nemaha County, Nebraska in March of 1872.
Both John and Elizabeth remained in Nemaha County and their graves can be found in the
Johnson Cemetery, Johnson, Nemaha County, Nebraska.
My most perplexing research problem is finding John's parents.
Can You Help Me?
During a recent search of the IGI on FamilySearch.org I found Julia Snodgrass was christened
on 26 Jun 1814 and Jane Snodgrass was christened 23 Sept 1815. Both at Derry Presbyterian
Congregation, Derry township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.
I suspect their parents were Robert Henry SNODGRASS and Hannah HOGAN. Can someone help me confirm
(or refute) that?
