Richard Snow and his wife Avis left four sons at their death. They had five sons but Daniel died at the age of one. Richard and Avis Snow's sons are listed below in birth order. The information about their total families cannot be listed here because there would be in the 1000's!
In the rest of the book I will list those from whom we get our lineage. There will be places that because of a interesting happening or some other story I will list all the information I have so that in the future if others use this book as a guide they will have the information. Without old family books written by other people it would be impossible for me to pass along our heritage.
