    • (1) Alexander, Jill, Narrative of Frost Family:

      The Snodgrass family was well known in Virginia (now West Virginia). Her forbearers came from Pennsylvania and settled in Hardy County, Virginia (West Virginia) before the colonies had solidified. Her father, William Snodgrass born 1794, married Sallie Harness in Hampshire County, Virginia (West Virginia) in 1820. He had fought in the War of 1812 and owned vast amounts of properties and many slaves. He had six or seven daughters and was determined that they should all have an education. Since there were no schools in the area, he built one, and the neighborhood children attended, as well. Martha Snodgrass' paternal grandparents were James Snodgrass born 1769 and Elizabeth Cusick also born 1769. Her grandparents married 1793, and her grandfather died 1853. Martha's mother's family, Harness, was also originally from Pennsylvania and had settled in Virginia (West Virginia). Her mother's father was Jacob Harness, and one of her forebearers, Michael Harness, had established the first fort in the area in 1761.
