My 2018 French ChallengeAZ in 100 Words: S for Snay

John Snay is my newest mystery man. He was on Vergennes Voters List for 1815. He might be Jean-Baptiste Seney who married Barbe Frenière dit Desrochers in 1802 in Saint-Luc, Quebec. Barbe is Gabriel and Jean-Baptiste’s sister— probably Gabriel and John Rock of Vergennes. I also found a John H. Snay on a military list who enlisted in Dayton, Ohio. He was born in Vergennes, Vermont around 1820. And what about Peter Snay living in Clinton County, NY in 1850? He was born in Vermont and his father was John Snay born in “France”. Food for thoughts.
