Addition Notes: Catherine Snellen, born 1844 in Bullitt, KY, died about 1871 in Bullitt, KY. She was listed in her father's household in the 1850 and 1860 Federal censuses. Following her father's death in 1868, in a confirmation deed of property to her sister Nancy and her husband Joseph Dobyns, their mother Letitia signed as guardian for Catherine, while the other siblings signed for themselves. The deed specified that all of them were of age (DB R, p. 281, 1868). She was shown in her mother's household in the 1870 FC. In October 1871 her brother Lewis, as one of the nine heirs of David Snellen sold his one-ninth interest in his father's land (DB S, p. 480, 1871). A later deed (DB W, p. 320, 1879) spelled out how each of the nine surviving heirs had sold or retained their interests. Catherine was not listed. These deeds indicate that Catherine was alive but not competent in 1868, alive at the time of the July 1870 FC, but deceased by October 1871 when Lewis specified that there were nine heirs.

Additional Notes: Catherine petitioned for divorce in 1835; however, they were together in the 1850 FC. David left his property to their daughter Nancy Evans Brown when he died in 1856.
