Eleanor Snow Burns


Very far #TBT. My Mom Eleanor Snow Burns at the grave of our first maternal ancestor in America, Constance Hopkins Snow, born Hursley, Hampshire, England 1606, died Eastham MA 1677. She came on the Mayflower in 1620 at aged 14 with her family, father Stephen Hopkins; her little brother “Oceanus” was born on the Mayflower during the trip . Her father Stephen was one of forty-one signatories of the Mayflower Compact, and an assistant to the governor of Plymouth Colony through 1636. He worked as a tanner and merchant and was recruited by the Merchant Adventurers to provide the governance for the colony and assist with the colony’s ventures. He is known as the only Mayflower passenger with prior New World experience being shipwrecked in Bermuda in 1609 and after rescue served for several years under Capt. John Smith at Jamestowne Colony. William Shakespeare’s “the Tempest” has a character rumored to be based on Stephen Hopkins. The Hopkins family were not part of the Pilgrims sect onboard; they were part of a group called “The Strangers” by the Pilgrims. They were merchants, craftsmen and skilled workers-and a few orphans. My 13th great-grandmother Constance married Nicholas Snow who arrived from London on “The Anne” in 1623. Constance Is buried at Cove Burying Ground in Eastham, MA.

    • I am a descendent of James (Jimmy) Snow son of William and Mahala
      He was a preacher on Dry Creek, I got his bible, I posted pictures of it on this site.

      • Hi Cousin! Do you live on the property where the graves are?
        What about the caves that are somewhere around there that they used to keep the cattle in? Is Ebenezer Snow buried there and did he fight in The Revolutionary War? I am just starting on my ancestry quest and have a lot of questions.

      • Hello Wiley Dwain,
        I am Linda Snow Davis and I am trying to connect to one of the TN Snows. My Gr grandfather was a Sam/Samuel M.? Snow born in Ark. in 1873 his son Willard b in MO and daughter Manda (shoud be Maude) was born in Choctaw Nation Indian Territory. From the census records his father, Richard Snow was born in TN. and he married Frances. I don’t have my notes in front of me so I do not remember her maiden name. And as far as I know some of their children were William, Charles, Samuel, Arthur but there was one or two others that I know of. Richard’s father was born in NC

        I would like to be able to find Richard’s father or actually WHICH Richard he is.

        If you could contact me or anyone here that might be able to help, it would help my search of over 25 years, as I just found out who my Grandpa Snows father was this past January.

        Linda

I do not live on the property, but the view on this page at top is the view from my house from the deck over looking upper Dry Creek, down under the fog is where the cemetery and the caves are.Ebenezer left DeKalb County and died in Roane County, Tennessee where he move to. Yes He was in the Revolutionary War.

  3. Yes, please send me the documents from Tommy Webbs book. My sister Barbara & I have been researching and she found 3 generations of Nicholas Snows that seemed to link to us. They were originally from England & our Great….. Grandmother came over on the Mayflower………..We were hoping it was true………..Start with Wiley Snow-Catherine Scott, son of William Billy Snow-Mahala Braswell, son of Ebenezer Snow-Sally Wicker, son of William B. Snow-(1st wife Hannah)Martha, son of Issac Snow-Alice ?, son of John Snow-Mary Smalley, son of Nicholas Snow III-Constance Hopkins, who came over on the Mayflower, son of Nicholas Snow II-Mary Walker, son of Nicholas Snow I – Elizabeth Harwoode

  5. Dwain,
    I just talked to Tommy Webb about ordering the book but found out that there are two books but only one available to order. Which one did you send the pages from and would there be enough information about the Snow’s in the EARLY VIRGINIA SETTLERS………BOOK ?
    Thanks,
    Judy

    • I am not sure the name of the book, I can find out, I don’t think there is anymore, that’s why I have not got one, did he tell you the name of the one he could order He has written 5 or 6 different books most of the history of DeKalb County, He is a descendent of James Snow, his grandmother was a Snow that is way this book follows James Snow all the way to me and him. He gave me James Bible,there is a lot of Snow’s in this book I can send the rest if you like. You can call me 615-597-1883 Dwain,

  6. I’ve been digging around in the Snow genealogy for the past few years – my wife is gr gr granddaughter of Wiley Snow. And she and her sister have been looking for the connection between Wiley and his father. Seems that I’ve not been able to get that through census records so having to look elsewhere. This blog makes the connection that gives them new places to look. The book by Tommy Webb seems to be a good resource. Both of them are trying to document back to the Mayflower and know that it is true and the Mayflower Society has it documented thru James Snow but no mention of Wiley. We have a trip planned to eastern TN in the spring so DeKalb County is a stop on the way. Their grandfather, Isham G Snow was a preacher too.

  7. I am also a descendent from Ebenzer Snow, William Snow, James Snow, James Madison Snow, We are descended of a Rev Solider which is Ebenzer Snow. I have proved our line all the way back to the Mayflower and a member of the TN Mayflower Society.

    • Great and thanks for the comment.
