1.5.12 Martha Snellen (b. 1861; d. 1894) Born Bullitt Co., KY 1861. MARTHA died AFT 1894.

Addition Notes: Mentioned in her father's 1894 will. She was not married at that time. It seems very likely that this Martha (also called Detha) is the same person as Dica Snellen, listed as her sister here. There is no instance where a Martha and a Dica are given together. They cannot be found together on the 1870 or 1880 census records, nor in Zachariah's will. The 1870 census lists Dorothy, age 9 (b. abt 1861), but no Dica. The 1880 census lists Martha, age 19 (b. abt 1861), which would lead one to believe that Dorothy and Martha are the same person. The 1880 census does not list a Dorothy or a Dica. Zachariah's will metions a Detha, but no Martha or Dica. The 1900 census lists a Dica Snellen, b. Feb. 1867, but there is no person with that birth year in Zachariah's household in 1870 or 1880.
