Note

Seven children are listed in the probate record of William Snell on file at the courthouse in Prairie du Chein, Wisconsin.

Once the William Snell family got settled in Seneca, Wisconsin they sent passage money to Ireland for his orphaned nephews Michael and Edmund Snell. "Red" Mide Snell was born in Feb 1843. He married Catherine Kiley in Ireland abt 1864 and their eldest child was born in Ireland in 1865. About 1866 "Red" Mike got to Seneca. He borrowed $600.0-0 from Michael Casey to purchase the "Garvey 60" and built his home near the spot where a cheese factory was later buildt. Mike m9ved his maily to Minneapolis, Minnestoa, where he worked as a night watchman. He died March 22, 1905. Mike and Catherine had 12 children, only six lived beyond infancy.

About the Snell Ancestry: Family lore produced by a descendant of William Snell (b.1790) says that Edmund (b.1845) and Michael (b.1843) Snell are brothers, and that William Snell b. 1790 is related to some UNKNOWN way to the brothers. The death certificate of Michael Snell (q1843-1905) says that his father was John Snell and mother's name was unknown. Family lore says that Ed Snell's father died when Ed was 2 years old, hence placing the date of the death of John Snell at 1847. It is only conjecture that William Snell MAY be the brother of John Snell, and that their father's name was Michael Snell. Michael's name is the only Snell found in available records of the area who could be the father of Joh, but it is far from proven fact. --Source: Delores McDonald 5975-B Harrell Place, Ft.
