    (A-558) SNELL/RICE - The late Halleck P. Long, author of several genealogical articles, prepared an extensive mss. on the SNELL family in 1939 (microfilm #483,677, Gen. Soc. of Utah; mss. index is at NGS Library, Arlington, Va.  Unfortunately, Mr. Long did not cite all his sources.  He wrote that Solomon SNELL (m. Abigail RICE) was son of John SNELL, and grandson of Samuel SNELL of Oyster River, N.H., and sugg. a connection with Thomas SNELL of Bridgewater, Mass., and the extensive New England SNELLs; that Solomon SNELL res. Chester, Vt., in 1790, and d. Erie, Pa.  I believe Mr. Long confused father and son.  Son Solomon, b. Mass. ca. 1788; d. Tecumseh, Mich., 1866; poss. m. Charlotte VAN COORT, and res. Erie, Pa.  His father Solomon d. Chester, Vt.. 28 Mar. 1800, ae. 56 (index to Vt. VRs), and is bur. there.  His admin. mentions only Abigail. who d. Chester 18 Mar. 1838: no estate rec. for her has been found. - Thomas W. Jones, 9232 Arlington Blvd., Fairfax, VA 22031
