Now that this book is finished, the compiler wishes to reiterate — to a certain extent by way of apology— that which was stated in the last paragraph of the "Foreword," /. c, that "this book is not a perfect genealogy" There are a few typographical errors in it, and some few errors of fact, but the writer is generously assured that every book, no matter how fine the edition, contains a few typographical errors. Therefore, pleading this in extenuation, he wishes simply to claim the benefit of his statement that the work "is substantially complete and reasonably reliable." Beyond that, he craves the kind indulgence of his readers, at the same time assuring them that he laments the visible shortcomings of the book much more than they can.

Page 86. Date of letter should be Jan. 5, 1895, not 1875.

Page 176. Tileston Snow's father-in-law, John Heath, did not lose arm in Revolution, but his wife's grandfather, Ebenezer Kentfield, lost arm in French and Indian War. (See page 230.)

Page 176. Date of Russ Snow's removal from Bath to Atkinson in italic sentence should be 1822, not 1882.

Page 180. Milton Tileston Hamlet is a fanner, not merchant.

Page 188. Sentence near end should read, "Milton, George and Eliza and Husband are there." Husband, not Hibbard.

Page 198. Alvia C. Hamlet's child, Theodore Lewis, was born Sept. 20, 1904, not 1905.

Page 202. Cora Arbo's oldest child, Erwin A. Arbo, died at Onazva, Me., not Onana.

Page 291. Five lines from bottom. Protracted, not protacted.

Note: The following note was found on an orphaned Snow profile:

The copy of this work at the NEHGS contains a page bound between pages 6 and 7 that reads: CORRECTION NOTE. The reader will note that on page seven of this book appears the statement that Richard Snow of Woburn died in 1711, and that consequently he could hardly have been one and the same with Richard Snow of the ship "Expedition". My authority for the date of the death of Richard Snow of Woburn was Sewall's History of Woburn. This date was evidently an error, for Richard died, as I have since learned, on May 5,1677, leaving a will dated 30 (11) i.e. Nov 30, 1676 [kge: shouldn't this be Jan 30, 1676/7?], and which was probated June 19, 1677. By this instrument he bequeathed property to his wife Ann, and sons, John, James, Samuel and Zachary. This information effectually removes all the haze and uncertainty respecting Richard Snow's years that appear in this Volume, and the identity of Richard Snow of Woburn with the Richard Snow of the ship" Expedition" becomes not only possible, but quite probable. The compiler hopes that this explanatory note will overcome any false impression which he may have unwittingly created by his printed words, and he feels sure that it will add considerably to the genealogical value of the book
