Biography

Sarah "Sally" Pollard was born in 1777 (some say 1774 but her gravestone says 1777) in Nottingham West, Massachusetts, on land that was later decided to be in New Hampshire (it became part of Hudson, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire). Her parents were Timothy Pollard, b: 1740 in the same town, and his wife, Sarah (Whittemore) Pollard, b: June 8, 1754, also in Nottingham West.[1]

After American independence was won, in the 1780s, the Pollard family joined a number of other Massachusetts residents in moving north to Maine (at that time part of Massachusetts). They settled in Canaan, Somerset County, Maine. There Sally Pollard met and married Captain Daniel Snow, b: 1771 in Worcester County, Massachusetts Bay Province, New England. The couple settled in a part of Canaan that became known as Bloomington and had 12 children:

  1. Mary SNOW b: 28 Jan 1796 in Canaan, Somerset, Maine, USA
  2. Sally SNOW b: 11 Oct 1797 in Canaan, Somerset, Maine, USA
  3. William SNOW b: Abt. Aug 1798 in Canaan, Somerset, ME
  4. Daniel SNOW b: Abt. Mar 1801 in Canaan, Somerset, ME
  5. Timothy SNOW b: 1803 in Canaan, Somerset, Maine, USA
  6. Nancy SNOW b: 19 Jan 1805 in Canaan, Somerset, ME
  7. Benjamin SNOW b: 23 Nov 1806 in Canaan, Somerset, ME
  8. Eunice SNOW b: 2 Jan 1808 in Canaan, Somerset, Maine, USA
  9. Susan SNOW b: 1811 in Canaan, Somerset, Maine, USA
  10. Adeline SNOW b: 1811 in Canaan, Somerset, Maine, USA
  11. Hiram SNOW b: 15 Apr 1813 in Canaan, Somerset, Maine, Twin
  12. Harriet SNOW b: 15 Apr 1813 in Canaan, Somerset, ME, Twin

Alas, Sarah (Pollard) Snow died on May 11,1814 in Bloomfield (Canaan, Skowhegan), Somerset County, Maine (Massachusetts Bay), USA. She was just 37 years old and left several young children, including twins barely a year old. She was buried at the Bloomfield Weston Cemetery, Skowhegan, Somerset County, Maine, USA. [2] At least 2 of her children: Eunice & Benjamin Snow, who died before marriage, were buried near her.

Less than 2 years later, Daniel Snow remarried to Mary "Polly" Sawyer, the widow of Kendall Boutelle. They married on January 26, 1815 in Fitchburg, Worcester Co., Massachusetts, USA, and had 2 children together in Maine:

  1. Joseph B. SNOW b: 26 Jun 1817 in Bloomfield [Skowhegan], Somerset, Maine, USA
  2. Loantha SNOW b: 8 Dec 1820 in Bloomfield [Skowhegan], Somerset, Maine, USA; d: 29 Mar 1823 in Skowhegan, Maine

Daniel Snow was an Ensign of Infantry in the Maine Militia in 1803. He was also a merchant marine sea Captain, a profession shared by many New England men named Snow in the 18-19th Centuries.

Captain Daniel Snow died in Bloomfield, Skowhegan, Maine on May 13, 1854 at 84 years old. He was buried at the Southside Cemetery Skowhegan, Somerset County, Maine, USA.[3] His 2nd wife, Polly (Sawyer) Snow, survived his passing for 15 years. She died on March 30, 1869, in Bloomfield, Skowhegan, Maine at 96 years old. She was buried by her step-children, whom she raised, beside her 2nd husband, Captain Daniel Snow, at the Southside Cemetery in Skowhegan, Maine, USA. [4]
