John Snell

 

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.[1]  He lived in Portsmouth, signing just a few documents and listed in 1711 as a resident of Portsmouth.[2] 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.
