According to the genealogy published in Tyler's Quarterly Historical and Genealogical Magazine, April 1930, Volume XI, #4, article on "Snell Families in Virginia," by Hallock P. Long, LL.B.:
John Snell, Jr., d. June 5, 1786, Orange County, Va., "planter of St. Thomas Parish." In 1734, named as executor of father's will in Spotsylvania County. Witnessed deeds in 1734, 1738, and 1739, in St. George's Parish, Spotsylvania County. In 1739, "John Snell, Planter, of Orange County, and Philadelphia, his wife," executed deeds to lands in Spotsylvania County. He is recorded in 1747 and 1759, as leasing lands in Orange County. His will dated May 20, 1785, filed Sept. 28, 1786, in Orange County, names his widow, eight children, and one grandson. He married, prior to 1739, Philadelphia (probably Foster), who died about 1800, in Scott County, Kentucky. His issue living in 1785, as shown by his will were as follows:

(1) John, d. 1820, issue in Scott Co., KY

(2) Philemon, d. 1797, issue in Albemarle Co., VA

(3) Robert F., d. 1827, issue in Orange Co. VA

[Image](4) Edsome, b. bet. 1762 and 1767, in Revolutionary War, 1776,

taxed 1788-9, Orange County, with 1 male and 1 female.

(5) Patsy, m. 1776, William Collins, Orange County, VA

(6) Philadelphia, m. Phillips

(7) Catherine, m. 1794, Haskew Foster, Orange Co.

(8) Sarah Garnet, unmarried in 1785.

This is an old genealogy, and so there may be corrections, additions, etc. It does not list descendants for daughter

Philadelphia. It does show John Snell (d. 1786) as assumed son of John Snell, probably son of another John Snell, who is first recorded in Gloucester County. This genealogy is less than certain about the line and the origin of the line. Perhaps someone can provide you with further information on it. If you cannot find this genealogy, e-mail me with an address, and I will send you a photocopy of the first few pages, which is where this line appears - the "first Virginia line." I descend from the "second Virginia line," which traces to Thomas Snell of Plymouth County, MA. His son Josiah married Anna Alden, granddaughter of John and Priscilla Alden.
