I descend from him, down from Johannes (John) (1758-1826), down from Jacob (1784-1838) down from Susanna Schnee Allen, et al. Jacob was quite a famous guy; as a printer; Lutheran Minister; as the originator of the "first all girls' school west of the Alleghenies" called the Harmony Institute (offering arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, natural history, philosophy, foreign languages, art & music); as a pioneer in early southwestern Indiana. His bio goes on and on and his history is recorded in the records of the Library of Congress. I have lots of information/records/pictures. Jan

I'm descended down from Jacob (1784 - 1838) as well. Jan, I'm very interested in what you have on him. Jacob's granddaughter, Emily Todd, married the son of one of New Harmony's most notable early settlers named Josiah Warren. Josiah was a well known inventor, musician, printer and founder of utopian societies. I believe Jacob and Josiah were in New Harmony about the same time around 1825ish...a couple of true renaissance men. Would be thrilled to share information.

Dana - well, if you are descended from Jacob Schnee then I guess we are somehow related. I have been writing bios on my ancestors and I did one recently on Jacob. I can send a copy of it to you if you wish. It includes lots of pictures and information on all his children. Which of Jacob's children do you descend from? You mentioned Emily Todd - maybe that is your ancestor. I also am going to write a bio on Elizabeth Todd's husband, Dr. Andrew Randall. I guess we have lots to share. I have been sending these bios to relatives at their e-mail addresses. Jacob's bio is in several parts due to the pictures. Jan Norman

Dana -I forgot to mention that the Anna Maria Schnee you mentioned is Jacob's sister, not his daughter. The years the two Anna Marias were born are similar. 1805 and 1807. People had children for 20 years or more and the children ended up being the same ages as some of their aunts and uncles. Anne or Anna Maria Schnee, Jacob's daughter was married to Jacob Bower on 3 Aug. 1827 and to Thomas Lankford after that. The veil will lift when you see the material I have. Jan Norman

Jan - yes, after digging a bit further I figured out that my Anna Maria Schnee was Jacob's sister and I am related to Emily Todd(my great, great grandmother). I followed the Todd family a little bit and I think theirs is a fascinating story, especially Elizabeth and Andrew Randall. I wonder what happened to Elizabeth after Andrew's murder? And their son, Alder, was a character I'll bet. Mayor of Tombstone...wow! I'd be very happy to receive your bio on Jacob Schnee. From what I understand, he was a very notable person in New Harmony. my email dtitus317@kc.rr.com. Thanks! And let me know if there's anything you'd like to know on the Emily Todd Warren family line. I have lots!!
