Facts and Events
Marriage[1] 10 Jul 1816 Clark, Indiana, United States

Based on the individuals in the households of James Snow in the 1820 and 1830 U.S. Census,S1, S2 it would appear that James and Elizabeth had at least six children,
two sons born between 1815-1820, or between 1817-1820, given the date of their marriage
a third son born probably late in 1820
a daughter born between 1820-1825 (or more likely between 1822-1824)
and two more sons born between 1825 and 1830.

Of these children, one of the sons born between 1825 and 1830 could be the Prince Snow, age 20 (b. ca 1829-1830), who is living with Ephraim Tucker in Shelby County, Indiana in 1850. Also living with Ephraim Tucker at that time is Joseph Roe, a nephew of James and Elizabeth Snow and potential cousin to Prince Snow. As well, it was Ephraim Tucker who purchased the land sold by James and Elizabeth Snow in 1839 (which they had purchased the previous year from Elizabeth's sister and brother-in-law Nancy and Joseph Reese), establishing a known association with the Snows. Ephraim Tucker was also a member of the Baptist community in Shelby County to which at least two of Elizabeth's sisters belonged, with two of his daughters marrying into the Reese family.
