In seeking the parents of Mary Dudley Boyd, I came across an entry in a database on the Dudley's. It gave Judith Dudley, sister to Mary Dudley, who married Simpson W. Snow, Surry Co. NC. died Freemont Ia. I, for the heck of it, looked up in the Cemetery Book for Fremont County Ia, the name Judith Snow and lo and behold there she was. In the history of Fremont County, Thurman Ia was once named Fremont/Freemont City, it was changed because there was already a town by that name in Ia. It was changed to Thurman, Ia. Further research found another Snow family, Fielding Snow and his wife E. Jane Bodenhamer daughter of D. G. and N. Bodenhamer. It turns out that Simpson and Fielding are brothers and sons of Fielding Snow and Sarah. They came to Iowa at different times and settled near each other in Scott Township, Fremont Co. Ia. Sadly Fielding Snow, his son and his wife all died within a very short span of time in 1868. One daughter, I believe named Nancy, survived.

Below is an account of the census records for both Snow families and the cemetery records for all the Snows buried in Fremont County Ia
