THE SNODDY FAMILY. The families of Snoddy in Spartanburg county, and those of the same name who have emigrated from said county to other States, are descendants of John and Jane Snoddy, who emigrated from Ireland, Antrim county, in 1773. They first landed in Charleston, S.C, but continued their journey to the up-country, and made settlement on Jimmies Creek, about midway between Welford and Nazareth church, in the present county of Spartan- burg. According to the best information we can gather, John and Jane Snoddy had two sons, John and Isaac, both of whom will receive further notice in this article. The remains of John and Jane Snoddy, whose maiden name was Cowen, lie buried in the cemetery of Nazareth church. The husband died in 1806, aged 76 years, and the wife in 181 6, aged 96 years. Besides the two sons mentioned, it has been stated that an older brother served in the Revolution, but of this fact we can gather no definite information... Near the close of the Revolution (November, 1781) John, one of the sons mentioned, was murdered by the Tories under " Bloody Bill " Cunningham, at Poole's Iron Works, an account of which we have given in an- other volume.* He had been an active partisan in the service of his country, and as such was an object of hatred by the Tories. The maiden name of his wife was Elizabeth Riddle, but was known as ' ' Aunt Betsy, ' ' and was remarkable for her energy and business judgment.
