Henry SNIVELY was born about 1803. He married Harriet Ann WAYLAND on 4 Jan 1848 in , Clark Co., Missouri.

Other marriages:

NOTE: B, p.14

Apparently married Harriet in 1848 after marrying Keziah, widow of Fielding Wayland (B1), who died in 1843. (Unless there are two Henry Snively's). Vicki Maddox has his name as "Zachary" Snively, and says that he was a brother or son of Henry Snively, but county marriage records plainly state that she married Henry Snively. This will take some research. Henry had title of "Judge". Vicki also has marriage as 22 Jan 1848, but my dates are directly from the marriage book in county records.

Ancestry.com marriage records sho that "Snively, Henry married Wayland, Keziah on 17 Mar 1840 in Clark County, MIssouri."

In one place in these notes, their marriage is given as 1853 and in another as 1855, with same month and day. I have a copy of a letter written by Eva's sister, Belle, to her September 13, 1869 and Eva's address at that time was: 274 8th Street, Louisville, Kty. I have a photo of her by herself and also of her and her husband soon after
their marriage (he has white hair and beard and looks much older...she
was age 17 and he 39 when married). All from Willett Magruder. Rachel is quite possibly found in the 1850 census, age 15, living with her uncle, Abraham Wayland #392. Her scanned picture is 551.jpg and 551a.jpg
