Biography

Isaac Snodgrass was born in Tennessee between 1800 and 1808. The name of his wife is unknown, but possibly was that Nancy Long who married an Isaac Snodgrass on 31 Dec 1822 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. But perhaps speaking against that, their eldest known child Joseph Snodgrass was not born until 11 Jan 1827 in Tennessee. Shortly after the birth of that child, the family for some reason moved west to the Lovely Purchase, where the land on which they squatted is probably now part of Oklahoma.

In mid-1828 all whites were evicted from this area, and so the family moved to or near the town of Mulberry then in Crawford County. Their next children were born here: Robert Bean Snodgrass on 29 Jan 1830, Andrew Jackson Snodgrass on 25 Sep 1831, and James Snodgrass on 25 Apr 1833.

At the end of 1837, in December, the legislature created the county of Franklin out of the Eastern-half of Crawford. Now in Franklin County, the family had Jefferson Snodgrass on either the 7th or the 9th of Feb 1838, Mary Francis Snodgrass on 11 Dec 1839, the twins John Snodgrass and Eliza Ann Snodgrass on 8 Feb 1842, and finally Elizabeth Jane Snodgrass on 10 Dec 1844.

Finis Luther Snodgrass, born 9 Jan 1884 died 29 Jun 1965. I do not know if Finis ever married or had any children.

James Frederick Snodgrass born 2 Sep 1876, (or 31 Oct 1874) Yolo County or Sonoma County, California; died 15 Nov 1945, (or 11 Aug 1936) in Sonoma County, California married Lulu M. Clark and had these sons:

His first marriage was to a woman named Lucille and apparently her maiden name was Terry. There is a child born in 1938 in Los Angeles County to a Snodgrass/Terry combination, however it would appear that Melvin was living in San Francisco.
