(Nancy & children are not listed with him, I haven't found them anywhere in the census... it's possible they were with him, them living on the Porterfield farm, & if the census taker only talked to Henry Porterfield, Henry may have only spoke of his own family & Wyatt as a worker due to that Wyatt may have been seen out in the field, with Henry omitting Wyatt's family... or Nancy & children could have been elsewhere, but I can't find them... she was not with her parents either...)

George Snow received GA land bounty for the Cherokee wars

I have extensive info on all the above people through my own research & with others... my husband is a gr-grandson of Jessie Irvin Johnson & Sarah Catherine Snow through their son William Marshall Johnson & Beulah Mae Graves. I will be glad to share what I have & help in anyway I can.

Happy reading
