I could sure use some help with the Sleet family of Boone County, KY.Family legend has it we are "cousins" to the Sleets but I cannot prove it.
My interest is particuliarly
Benjamin F. Snow b. circa 1834 m. Susan Sleet b. circa 1840...marriage 1857 in Boone County, KY.
I cannot prove just how these two folks fit into my tree but they surely must.
Ben Snow is the son of Henry Snow and Jane Bridges.He is living next to my Great Great Grandfather Henry Friend b. 1839 m. Almedia Black in 1870 Gallatin County, KY.Henry Friend's son, John Friend m. Margaret Snow.I have no clear notion as to how Ben Snow and Susan Sleet are related to Margaret Snow, but perhaps a cousin.
The Snow family is hopelessly intertwined with the Waters, McPhersons, and Lancasters. The Friend family marries into the Snow family, and may have connections to the Turners and Costigans. The Black family ties with Fullilove and maybe Turner.
All of these lived in and around the Big Bone backwaters including Verona, Hume, Duckhead, Hamilton, etc.
If any of this peeks your interest, please do contact me.
