Well, atlast someone working on this Snelling line. Although I dont know if I connect to 'this' Snelling line; over the years I have collected data on him, just incase.

One of the tough things about researching any of the Snelling lines, is the way the name so often was goofed up either in the handwritting, spelling or just in the indexing.

I have some documentation on the kids of of Benson Snelling, which one do you descend from?

1870 IN, Crawford Co, Patoka twp
Indexed as Snelon
Snelon, Benson 54 bn KY
, Catherine 52 bn KY
, Linza 23 bn KY (male)
, William 9 bn IN
, Ann 7 bn IN
, Allis 5 (Alice)
, Richard 2

*Linza (Male) is really a Buford from the previous marriage of Catherine.... Buford Son and Mother can be found on the 1860 census.

Benson Snelling md Catherine D. Buford
27 May 1869, IN Crawford Co.
**Soooo, Buford was her previous married name**

Other Marriages for Benson, but further research is needed to document its the same Benson Snelling.

Benson Snellon md Racheal Husbands
05 mar 1850 Anderson Co, KY
There is also another Snelling/Husband marr that might be a clue:
George Snelling md (Susan) Mary Husband
11 aug 1846, Anderson Co, KY

And on the WPA works for Indiana marriages:
William H. Snelling (bn abt 1861)md 19 feb 1882 Clarinda A. H. Brown (Alice?)
he states his
father is: Benson and Mother is: Mary Dermit.
***So we have another marriage around 1860?

I cant seem to locate Benson Snelling on the 1850 or 1860 census, which would be a big help in sorting this family group out.

Hope this helps some,
