   The voyage had been a long experience for the wide eyed eighteen year old; yet, with the April winds behind him he could soon begin his new life.  As The Susan and Ellen made port in the Massachusetts colony of America, William Snowe realized that 1635 would indeed be a turning point.
   After leaving ship he went ashore to the inn where his room and board were pre-arranged by a Sir Richard Derby.  While back in England the young William had been apprenticed in Richard's service.  Learning a trade under the skilled master's guidance was how he was able to pay for his journey to the "New World".
   Three years after his arrival, on August 31st, 1638 William's apprenticeship was legally transferred, and he was reassigned to a gentleman named Edward Doten[4] of Plymouth.  As an indentured servant William Snowe now began to officially repay his transportation debt for the next seven years.

   In 1643 William was able to bear arms in defense of the colony, and by 1645 was once again declared a freeman, having repaid his debts in full.  At the age of twenty-eight he moved to the Bridgewater community as one of its earliest settlers.  It was during the next twelve years that he began building upon his skills to develop a career for himself.  Within these years he met, and soon courted a young woman named Rebecca, the daughter of Peter and Mary Browne from Duxbury, England.
   Not only did Rebecca come from a well-respected family, but she was beautiful as well.  For in 1657 William and Rebecca married.  It was at this time that the American William dropped the letter "e" from the spelling of his English surname: SNOW.
   William and Rebecca Snow were the parents of the following eight children:

pl: Lauderdale Co., Ms        

V. Mamie Elizabeth Price
     Mamie was a soft spoken, gentile woman remembered for her kindness.  She was detailed orientated in her house cleaning and stored everything in moth balls.  After her husband, DeLaine passed away in 1964 she later married a man named Leo Armstrong.   They had no children of their own.  After he passed, she lived alone.  Mamie lived north of Houston in The Woodlands near her daughter Sandra.  Mamie Armstrong developed Alzheimer’s disease, and for a time lived in an assisted living apartment until she passed away at the age of 88 years old.

VI. Linda Lucile Townsend
       Like her mother, Linda was a quiet spoken person, but had an outgoing personality.  After she married Bob Snow, the responsibility and pressures of motherhood gave rise to a depression she did not manage well; weight gain and alcoholism developed.  After an affair was revealed, Bob sought a divorce.  Linda’s drinking lead to drug addiction, and the loss of her two sons.  Tracy and David were taken by The State of Texas, and they were placed in the Buckner’s Home for Boys in Dallas.  Bob remarried, and legally gained full custody of his sons.
   Linda’s depression and drug abuse lead to a passion charge, and a 10 year prison sentence in Gatesville.  After her release, she attended Alcohol Anonyms meetings where she met Gerald Lee Thomas, who also struggled with issues.  The hit it off and were shortly married.  Linda went to trade school and successfully completed a Cosmetology license becoming a hair stylist for a time.  She was also able to reconnect with her two adult sons, and rebuild a relationship with them.
   Gerald and Linda Thomas never had children of their own.  They lived in Copperas Cove, Texas for several years, and later moved to Loogootee, Indiana where Gerald got a job “farming turkeys”.  Earlier years of IV drug abuse took its toll as Linda suffered the consequences of having Hepatics C.  She passed away from it worsening complications at the age of 58 years old.
