The Snows of Ireland

My Aunt & Uncles always mentioned about our Snows coming from County Cork, Ireland but I have yet to be able to make a connection. I know that my Graet Grandfather was Frances A. Snow and born about 1850 and that his Father was born in New York. Here is a seem of the more recent info that I have:I am trying to identify the parents of Frank A. Snow who is married to Ellen (Mary Ellen Dove ). They both died in the 1920s and are buried at Maple Hill Cemetery. BOth were born in Indiana. They had four children; William Gilbert Snow (my grandfather ) born in White Pigeon, Saint Joseph County, Michigan, Emma Gertrude Snow, Claude & Clyde Snow. I believe, but cannot prove so far, that either Claude's or Clyde's first name was Francis (Francis C. Snow ). My Grandfather, William Gilbert Snow, married Annie Elvira Covey in Nessen City, MI. in 1900 and I have a substantial amount of genealogy from that point on. I do have a some info on the Covey family who lived in The Village of Honor, Michigan (Homestead )as well as the my Snows. My Uncle Earl, Vivian Earl Snow, lived and died in Elberta, MI. He did everything from drive a school bus and a snow plow to being the city constable. He was married to a wonderful wonderful woman, Rose Ward. My Uncle Lincoln (Isreal Lincoln Snow) resided in Honor, MI. Now I am beginning to research one of my Coveys who was either a sheriff or Marshall in Muskegon, MI. According to my relatives the Snow name cound have been spelt either O'Snow or Snowe. Feel free to contact me at
