The individuals below may appear in your DNA matches.
Snowdens of three origins appear in my DNA matches. No direct link is known to exist between them. Snowdens are a family into which our Goldens married and so we carry shared DNA not due to direct lineage, except for those Goldens with a Snowden grandparent.
Of interest and documented as intermarrying into our Golden family are the Snowdens of South Carolina.
- Prince Georges, Maryland and Virginia origin in 1700s
~~~ William Snowden, 1689–1763, and Abigail Wooley, 1693–1745
~~~ James Snowden, 1760–1846, and Elizabeth Hubbard, 1764–1823
- York County, South Carolina origin in 1780s
~~~ John Samuel Snowden, 1754–1820, and Mary Gibson, 1766–1823 … their daughter Gracie Snowden, 1780–1860, married John Golden, 1775–1850.
- Misc from Canada of UK origin, Massachusett and and the UK.
