    I am interested in the genealogy of the William Snow family of Kent County, Delaware.

    In an excerpt from a manuscript written by the historian, Mr. Thomas G. Webb, dated January 1994, of which I have a copy, he mentions Isaac Snow, son of Joseph Snow, b. 1771 in Delaware, and his father, William the subject of the excerpt.

    In the manuscript Mr.Webb mentions in reference to Joseph Snow and son, Isaac Snow, a DeKalb Co., TN deed, Book B, pages 462 and 488. I have called Mr. McMillen the DeKalb Co., registrar, and he says that Book B does not exist in DeKalb County.

    I am at a loss as to where to find a copy of this deed.

    If you can help in any why, I’d be so appreciative.

      Hi Linda,

      Have you tried checking with the Tennessee State Library & Archives? They may be able to offer some insight.
