Four Campbell families connected by marriage, were those of Hughes, Snow, Thompson and Walden. In 1765 Henry Snow received a grant from George III of 410 acres lying on the north side of Staunton river and Plum Tree branch, including what was later known as the Moon place. In 1783, Henry Snow married Martha Cheek.

Thomas, Jr., and Mark Snow, sons of Thomas, Sr., and Winifred Snow, served at the battle of Guilford C. H., with Richard Walden; Thomas Snow, under Capt. James Rice and Mark under Capt. Jacobus Early, in Col. Charles Lynch's regiment. Mark Snow later married Elizabeth Torrence. Sold 115 acres of land (beginning at a line patented by Henry Snow to Watery branch) to Capt. Jacobus Early and moved to Georgia a power of attorney being sent from Wilkes county, Ga., in accordance with an act "enabling persons living in other countries to dispose of their estates in this commonwealth with more ease and convenience." Mark Snow settled in Gwinnett county, Ga.

Richard Snow, born 1754, was a Revolutionary pensioner, aged 81 years, in 1835.

James Snow patented 167 acres on both sides of Crab Apple Tree branch in 1780; and John Snow patented 30O acres along Ward's Ferry road on the heads of east branches of Troublesome creek. Children of Thomas and Winifred Snow were:

Thomas Snow, Jr., married Rachel, daughter of Peter and Frances Bennett in 1781; a letter filed with their marriage bond, dated Oct. 27, 1781, is as follows:

"To the Clerk of Bedford Court, Sir: Please to grant the Lysence of Marriage between Thomas Snow and Rachel Bennett, and this our note shall prevent dammidges occurring. In witness whereof we have set our hands and seals," signed Rachel Bennett, Sr., Elizabeth Perry, Frances F. Bennett: Thomas Adams, security for Thos. Snow's marriage bond.

His son, Thomas, emigrated to Kentucky in 1835, carrying a son, Joseph, aged 3 years. Joseph H.
