Title: Descendants of William Snook Abbrev: Judy Tooman, Descendants of William Snook Author: Judy Tooman Publication: sent April 22, 2000 Note: Descendants of William Snook Generation No. 1 1. WILLIAM1 SNOOK died Bef. 18 Jun 1760 in Hunterdon Co., NJ. He married CATERON (-). Notes for WILLIAM SNOOK: The will of William "Schnuck" or Snook, Amwell Hunterdon Co., written 26 May 1760, proved 18 Jun 1760, named wife Cateron; children John, Caterin Steenman, Elizabeth Volbart, Christian Roteham, Ann Wombock, Mary Abbut, William, George, and Philipp. Execs: wife and sons John and William. Inventory taken 13 Jun 1760. (NJ Lib. 10, p. 575) Note: Roteham is mistranscription of Ketchum; Volbart aka Phulpher. William Snook was in Hunterdon Co. by about 1744. Birth order of William's children is unknown, except that John is called the eldest son in the will of wife Cateron and listed first in the will of William. It is believed son William, Jr. is buried in Larison's Corner Cemetery, Amwell, and if so, he was born ca 1725. According to a military pension application, son Philip was born about 1740. All five daughters were married before May 1760, and were likely born before 1740. In Cateron's 1763 will, she refers to all children but George as having children. She gave a special bequest to daughter Catharine Stineman, perhaps indicating she is the eldest daughter. In the New York City Dutch Church, 14 Jun 1724, Catherina SNOEK was baptised, the daughter of Wm. Snook & Anna K. Follepertyn; sponsors were Johannes Snoek and Katharina Follepertyn. (NYGB, Record, 20/15) Some researchers believe this is William, Cateron and dau. Catharine Snook of Hunterdon Co., NJ. Based also on NY church records (NYGB Record, 16/124), it is believed by some that William Snook's father was Johannes Snook/Snoek, widower, who married 17 Mar 1727, Coenradina Manderbach/Manerspach, widow of Johann Peter Strouber, both from Germany.

Notes for GEORGE SNOOK: Children of George Snook based on research by Frank Mounts. His will (written 15 Oct 1803, proved 23 Sep 1807) names wife Anne and 14 children. His children were all born after 1763 (see his mother's will). His estate was to be sold and proceeds divided into 20 shares among his children: Sons William, George, Peter, Samuel, Richard and Nathaniel were to have 2 shares each; daughters Elizabeth Marts, Catherine Field, Sarah Bosenberk, Mary Young, Hannah Golden, Deborah Snook, Achsa Snook, and Rachel Snook were to receive 1 share each.

The deed states that William Snook died intestate; however, this statement proves to be an error. William (1) Snook had a will and divided his land so that his son John received 102 acres and sons William, George and Phillip received 103 acres each. William (1) left wife Cateron 120 acres and his five daughters received a total of 175 acres. George Snook, Sr., was then the son of William (1) Snook.
