John SNELL is my seventh great grand uncle; we are related through his parents, my eighth grandparents George and Hannah (ALCOCK) SNELL. John is the third child of six children born 1667/8 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He lived in Portsmouth, signing just a few documents and listed in 1711 as a resident of Portsmouth. John died 3 September 1718 in Portsmouth.
There are many, many John Snell’s that lived during this time period, keeping them sorted out is a bit of an issue. I believe I identified the correct person; if I have made an error, please give me a link to a record to correct my records.
