    Notes 
    • John was 60 years old when he died at Duck Creek, Kent County, Delaware. He settled at Truro on property given to his father by grandfather Nicholas Snow. John bought land at Lebanon, CT in 1710-11 and was founder of the Truro Church (Truro, Barnstable County, MA) 1 November 1711. Elizabeth Snow, wife of John, was admitted to the church 30 August 1713. He served as deacon from 1717/18 to 1726/27 and as Truro's town clerk. On 20, November 1721, Deacon John Snow, wife, Elizabeth and son, Joshua witnessed the will of Joseph Young of Truro; she swore as to attestation on 30 January 1722/23 and Deacon John swore 4 July 1723. On 11 January 1726/7 he was chosen ruling elder of the Truro Church. On 31 March 1728, he was "discarded for suspected adultery and other misdemeanors." Probably as result of his troubles, he moved ca 1728 to Duck Creek (now Smyrna), Kent Co. DE where his brothers, Elisha and Isaac had settled in 1711. John was there by 7 May 1729 when brother Isaac sold him 246 acres on the north side of the southwest branch of Duck Creek. John conveyed this tract to brother Elisha 11 Nov. 1734, with brother Isaac serving as witness and no spouse participating.

      The will of John Snow of Kent Co. Delaware, dated 9 oct 1738 and proved 14 Oct. 1738, mentioned wife, Hannah and son David; brother, Isaac was named executor, and witnesses were Elisha Snow, Abraham Cockrill and Thomas Harrod.

      The first wife, Elizabeth apparently remained on Cape Cod. She may be the Elizabeth Snow whose cattle mark was recorded at Truro 29 April 1736. No record of divorce or probate has been found for her. John's children by his first wife appear to have remained on Cape cod and were not mentioned in his Delaware will. They are identified in a family record prepared by his grandson, Dr. Samuel Nye (1749-1834) as follows:

      "Children of my maternal grandfather; Joshua Snow, Isaac, Anthony, Amasa, Ambrose, John, Elizha, Mrs. Annable (Elizabeth Snow), Mrs. Young and Mary Nye."
