NAMES UNKNOWN: GENERATION EIGHT
Unidentified oldest son of Joseph Jr. Snowden and Margaret
Haning Snowden. He was born circa 1795 in Washington County, PA, and died circa 1824. His unidentified wife, daughter
of unknown. Not known when she was born or died. However they married circa 1820.
The unidentified son probably paid taxes during the few years he lived while of age, but
there are no records of his name or whom he married. This nameless son probably lived at home and farmed the place. At that
time home was the 80 acres of land that his mother Margaret Haning Snowden leased from the Ohio
University at Athens, in 1807. This land was in Athens, in Alexandar Twp., OH. The U.S. censuses indicate that he and
later his unidentified wife and family made their home with his mother, Margaret. As a tribute to his mother Margaret,
whom Margarets Creek was named for, he buried her on an eminence on farm lot #7, Section 24, overlooking the stream, Margarets
Creek. The two-story home was still standing circa 1960.
