Jonathan Snow1,2,3,4

b. 12 July 1768, d. 31 March 1846
Headstone of Jonathan & Lydia Snow
     Jonathan Snow was born on 12 July 1768 in Rochester, Province of Massachusetts Bay.5,2,3,4,6 He was the son of Mark Snow and Hannah Sears.4 Jonathan Snow married Lydia Hammett, daughter of Barnabas Hammett and Hannah Braley, on 11 February 1790 in New Bedford, Bristol County, Massachusetts.7,2,3 Jonathan Snow died on 31 March 1846 in Montpelier, Washington County, Vermont, at age 77.8,2,3,6 He was buried in East Montpelier Village Cemetery, East Montpelier, Washington County, Vermont.6,9
     They moved from Salem MA to Montpelier VT in 1792.10 He appeared on the census of 1810 in Marshfield, Caledonia County, Vermont, now Washington County. enumerated as Jono Snow. Joel Bassett, father of his future daughter-in-law was enumerated on the same page. The household consisted of six males and five females.11 He appeared on the census of 1820 in Montpelier, Washington County, Vermont. The houshold consisted of 6 males and 3 females.12 He appeared on the census of 1830 in Montpelier, Washington County, Vermont.13 He appeared on the census of 1840 in Montpelier, Washington County, Vermont.14

Jonathan was the first Snow to migrate to Vermont from Salem MA. According to one record, he arrived in Montpelier in 1789, working first for Colonel Davis.

In a report written by his grandson, Alonzo J. Snow, Jonathan arrived in 1791 on horseback when only five families were settled in the town of Montpelier. He located and cleared 160 acres of heavily timbered land, and build a log house near a spring, raising potatoes and wheat.

He returned to Salem and moved back to Montpelier in the winter of 1792 with his wife and baby on an ox sled with all their clothes and dishes packed in a small chest. Jonathan rode ahead on horseback, the oxen following him, as he broke the path, guided much of the way by marked trees.

Their nearest neighbor, General (?) Davis, lived three miles from where they settled, halfway to Montpelier.

Barnabas Hammett, father of Lydia Hammet moved up a few years later and bought (and never paid for) the east half of Jonathan's 160 acres. They all lived and died there near one another.

All the children of Jonathan and Lydia Hammett Snow, except the first and the last three, were born and lived in the log house on the top of Snow Hill. The farm remained in the Snow family until 1904 at the death of Frederick Marcus Snow.10

Rev. Jonathan Marcus Snow1,2,3,4,5

b. 30 October 1809, d. 30 April 1862
     Rev. Jonathan Marcus Snow was born on 30 October 1809 in Montpelier, Caledonia County, Vermont, now Washington County. His birth certificate confirms that he was the 11th child.4,1,5 He was the son of Jonathan Snow and Lydia Hammett.4 Rev. Jonathan Marcus Snow married Hannah Vincent, daughter of Thomas Vincent and Betsy Burgess, on 2 June 1833 in Plainfield, Washington County, Vermont.6,5 Rev. Jonathan Marcus Snow died on 30 April 1862 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, at age 52.1,5,7 He was buried in Rosehill Cemetery, Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.8
     He and Hannah Vincent appeared on the 1850 Federal census of Mineral Point, Iowa County, Wisconsin, enumerated 22 July 1850 Jonathan was enumerated as James and was listed as Methodist Clergyman. Their children Mary Elizabeth, Sarah Jane, Narcissa F., Avis Gertrude, Frances Adelaide and George Vincent were listed as living with them.9 Rev. Jonathan Marcus Snow and Hannah Vincent appeared on the 1860 Federal census of South Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, enumerated 25 July 1860. Their children Mary Elizabeth, Sarah Jane, Frances Adelaide, Avis Gertrude, Harriet Iamba and Martha Eleanor were listed as living with them.10

Jonathan Marcus Snow was an itinerant preacher. He moved about a great deal, witnessed by the birth places of his nine children - one in Vermont, seven in different Wisconsin cities, and the last one in Chicago.11

From the book "Thirty Years in the Itinerancy, by Rev. W.G. Miller D.D.I.L.
Hauser & Company, Milwaukee, 1875: (Note: Concerning the settlement of a Methodist Community in Racine WI, in 1836, Page 188):

......Jonathan M. Snow and Nathan Joy came soon after, the latter coming around the lakes in the first three-master that visited Lake Michigan. The list of names thus given does not make a full record of the early arrivals, but furnishes as far as I am informed, such as constituted, the first Methodist Community.

From Pages 250 & 251): ....The Conference of 1862 was held Oct. 1st at Kenosha, Bishop Janes presiding. The country was now in the full tide of war. During the year several members of the Conference had gone out as Chaplains, Rev. H. C. Tilton with the Thirteenth Regiment, Rev. C. D.
Pillsbury with the Twenty-Second, and Rev. Samuel Fallows with the Thirty Second.

This was the hour for brave words, and the Wisconsin Conference had them to give. Nor war it in words alone that she was prepared to sustain the Government. Such was the patriotism of the body that her ranks might have been seriously depleted at any time, if it could have been done with safety to the interests of the country. But it was conceded that the Government must now have a vigorous support at home. Partisan feeling in the late canvass had greatly demoralized the people, and a strong moral influence was needed to rightly shape the tone of public sentiment. In fact, it was necessary throughout the struggle that the Churches, under the lead of the clergy, should act the part of Aaron and Hur, in sustaining the Government.

The Report adopted by the conference of the state of the country gave no uncertain expression of sentiment. Assuming the position dictated by the most lofty patriotism, she pledged the country an unwavering support until the flag of the Commonwealth should again wave in peaceful triumph over the entire land. Recognizing human freedom as the issue in the conflict, she deemed it alike the duty of the citizen and the Christian to prosecute the war.

At this Conference the death of Rev. Jonathan M. Snow was announced, and his obituary placed upon the Minutes. Brother Snow, after spending a short time in Racine, entered the Illinois Conference in 1838. His appointments were Elgin, Princeton, Mount Morris, Geneva, Washington, Sylvania, Troy, Janesville, Mineral Point and Madison. At the close of his labors at Madison, in 1852, he retired from the active work, but in 1859, he was re-admitted and granted a superannuated relation. Brother Snow was a decisive man, earnest, energetic and persevering. He performed his full share of pioneer work, and deserves an honorable mention among the Fathers of the Conference.12
