Abby E. Snell

Abby E. SNELL is my first cousin four times removed; we are related through her grandparents, my fourth great grandparents Joseph H. and Abigail (JORDAN) JELLISON.  Abby is the third of five children born to Albion King and Martha Jane (JELLISON) SNELL.  There is a good chance that we are related through the SNELL line, but as of now I’ve not found the link.  Abby was born 24 October 1852 in Portland, Maine.[1]  She was enumerated with her parents in 1860 taken in Waltham, Maine.[2]  She died at age nine of diphtheria 6 April 1862 in Waltham.[3]  She is buried in Hillside Cemetery, Waltham.
