I'm almost convinced that the Elizabeth Snelson who married Jonathan Dobbs is the daughter of the Thomas Snelson listed on the 1840 Carroll Co., AR census.
This Thomas must have married bet 1820 & 1830. He shows in Rhea Co., TN on the 1830 census and the 1832 Tax List. In 1840 and 1841, he's in Carroll Co. AR with two daughters, born between 1825 & 1830. I have one, Arena, born 1828.
Thomas has died before the 1850 census....
Thomas is the ONLY one that I can find, using the census index, that went from Tennessee to Arkansas and in the correct time frame.
Would love to have someone be able to prove me either correct or incorrect.
