1.3.01 John N. Snellen (b. 1829; d. 1880) Born 1829 in Bullett, KY and died after 1880.

Addition Notes: According to the Federal census records, John was born about 1829 and probably named for his grandfather John Snellenbarger. He never married. In the 1850 and 1860 censuses, he was shown living with his parents on Crooked Creek. In the 1870 census, he was in the household of William and Elizabeth Ridge. What relationship they had, if any, is not known. In 1880 he was living with his brother Israel on the Crooked Creek homeplace. There is no record of him after that. Did he go to TX with his sister Nancy and her husband Joe Dobyns? In some of the census records, his middle initial was given as 'N.', but there is no indication of what it stood for. It could have been for 'Napper,' his mother's maiden name.
