I'm wondering if it is a stretch to believe that the surname Shaw (one of my lines) morphed into Snow through the years. I am finding an Eli "Schaus" and his brother James B. Snow as land grantees from their service in the War of 1812. I have attached the file. How likely would this have been?

I believe Elis name is also Snow. Look further in the document and it definitly is Snow.

I'm not seeing Schaus; just Snow.
