Re: Dempsey and Lillian Johns Snowden/Charlton Co, GA

I am glad that you asked for help on this family.

I think that I might have looked for them before but I was not able to put enough information together to make a tree. I've looked at the census for 1840 to 1920 and I've seen some inconsistancies. Mary Snowden's birth date ranges from about 1800 to about 1820. So I'm guessing about 1809. She seems to have had a long life.

We can assume John Snowden is now dead. Who is Nancy Thompson and where is Mr. Thompson?

Now I'm beginning to wonder is Nancy Snowden the daughter of Mary Snowden or a daughter-in-law to Mary Snowden?

This is the first time I've seen that in a census! But, I digress.

In 1870 they seem to have all gone back to the Snowden name for the time being. Some of these children might have belonged to Lucretia or Elizabeth.

Lots of Johns on this page too but I'm still looking for the elder Peter Snowden.

Now we have gone back to the Thompson last name, and still no sign of Mr. Thompson
