Seeking information on the family of Hail Snow, who died in Carroll County, VA on 10/27/1885 at a very advanced age. The death register indicates Hail Snow was 110 years old, although I think the age is slightly exaggerated if the census data is correct (Hail Snow - 64 in 1850, 74 in 1860, 87 in 1870 and 103 in 1880.) I've been told that my g-g-grandfather, H. James Snow, 1824 to 1908, was the son of Hail and Susan Snow but I have not yet found any proof to verify this connection. Both Hail Snow and James Snow had sons named Preston Hale, so the circumstantial evidence supports the connection. James Snow appears on the 1850 Carroll County, VA census but he subsequently moved to Surry County, VA where he died in 1908. I'm interested in exchanging information with anyone researching this family. Thanks in advance!
