I've come across info showing an Asa Snelling born at 1654 in Massachusetts. Source is Genealogy column of the Boston Transcript, 1906-1941. Dated 1 May 1911. Before now the first Asa of this line is shown born in 1737, son of Mark Snelling, the first known Snelling in this line. Has anyone else researched this? If info is correct it certainly puts a new spin on both this line and its "northern and southern cousins" connection. All input appreciated.
