Re: KEENE, SNELL & HOLT 1800's

On I found a Virginia ancstry archive that listed a Michael Debo b.1770 m.1795 d.1861?
Henry, John, Elizabeth, Margaret, Samuel,Rivera, Sally,Daniel and Mary are listed as children

I have a Henry Debo b.1817 in KY who married Polly MarySnell 7/20/1841 in Boone Co MO with children listed as Nathan b1842, William b.1844, John b.1845, Henry b.1849

Henry's second wife is listed as Lucy Ann Sutton m.1/24/1855
Henry's third wife is listed as Martha J. Bell Pogue m.2/23/1875 with one son listed as Sam 1878-1943

My G-G-G grandfather was Henry's brother, John b.1802 in KY
by 1844 he shows up in the 1844 census in Callaway Co MO. He is listed as marrying Annie Snell 9/23/1835 in Callaway Co MO. Their children were listed as John H b.1836, Samuel b.1838 and Willis b.1845

It appears that the Debo-Snells left KY for Callaway Co MO around 1833-1835 John Snell V b.1766 Va, d.1845 in Callaway MO and is the father of Annie and Polly (Mary)

I've traced the Snell's back to 1650 John Snell I died in Gloucester Co., VA

John Snell IV died 5-4-1820 in Scott co. KY and is a Revolutionary War Vet. DAR#A106444. His father John Snell III was also a Rev. War Vet DAR #A106443

John Snell IV 1740-1820 was given 591 Acres land from a VA treasury warrant possibly from his wife's dad,Edward Watts. Her name was Elizabeth Watts 1740-1820.

It seems before the Snells settled in Scott Co. KY they lived in Orange Co, VA.

I know this is alot to take in...I have more, but only on the Snell side, nothing more on the Debo side except that I wrote down somewhere that Henry Debo had listed his dad being born in TN and his mom born in VA.

please let me know if you find anything!
