GEDCOM Note

Because so much incorrect information regarding James and Mary Margaret Thames Snowden has been posted and endlessly copied, I will use this forum for corrections. Hopefully there are some researchers who still want accurate information For starters, James Snowden was positively not son of Samuel Snowden and Mary Gibson of Williamsburg SC. Their children are extremely well documented. James Snowden did have, according to a record written in the late 1800's by his granddaughter (at a time when Mary Margaret Thames was still alive), two sisters, Mary and Gracie "who married a Golden"; also two brothers: John who always moved with James, and William. James' exact birthplace is unknown, though MM stated in her pension application that he was born in Sumter County SC. Aside from census records listing SC, that is the only known record of his place of birth. Sumter did not exist in 1791, but he may have been born in an area MM later knew as Sumter. It is equally certain that Mary Margaraet Thames was not daughter of Samuel Thames and Elizabeth Brunson of Beaufort SC. Their children are also well documented and she is not among them. MM's parents are unknown, though the granddaughter mentioned above wrote that Mary Margaret's mother "was a Brunson" - which no doubt led to the mistaken conclusion regarding Samuel Thames and Elizabeth Brunson of Beaufort. Elizabeth, wife of James Snowden's brother John, was accepted by earlier (and knowledgable) Snowden generations as sister to Mary Margaret Thames. Otherwise, MM's siblings are also unknown. In addition there is no proof that she was born in Manchester SC, or even resided there. There is proof in her pension papers that she and James were married in Manchester, but nothing more. Brides were commonly married in their home town or county, and this may well have been the case - but Manchester, at that time, was well known as a summer retreat for planters residing nearer the coast. The marriage was in May, so the possibility exists she was a visiter there.... certainly there's no indication she had been born there. Some researchers have even identified Manchester as birthplace of James Snowden, with no evidence whatsoever.the past I've had extensive contact with family members and researchers of both the Samuel Snowden family and the Samuel Thames family. They have shared research and records with me and I do have documentation to support my statements and conclusion. I also have a strongly held opinion as to the actual father of James and John Snowden.....
