Born 14 Jan 1812. ,Hamilton,OH,USA

Died 30 Mar 1894. Buried Sharpeye Cem,Darke,OH,USA.

Find A Grave: Memorial #57850404. spouse Mary Shively (1818-1879). His mother and his wife were both named Mary Shively (Snell).

Although Henry and Mary are very common names, I believe I have the correct census records.

1870 census for Washington Twp, Darke Co, OH, is very faint on FamilySearch page, but it's clear enough. AND there are some other Snells on the same page. I'll note them here and try to figure them out:

Daniel Snell age 60, (word I can't figure out) House Carpenter, b OH. This is Snell-2815, Henry's brother.
John R. Snell age 20, farm laborer, b OH. His is a separate line from Daniel above and Henry H below, with no indication of relationship. Son of Daniel above and Mariah Rush. I have not entered these children yet.
Henry H, age 47, (same word I can't figure out from Daniel's entry) Wagon Maker with the following 8 people in same family. Emily R, age 42, Mary J age 18, James age 15, Andrew J age 13, William age 10, Harvey age 8, and Calvin age 6, all b OH. This Henry is too young to be either Henry or Daniel's brother. Not listed in Snell Descendants below. Most closely matches Henry H Snell FAG # 156462429, with spouse Amy and three children that are close to Mary J, James, and Calvin. Not sure who his parents are yet.
