Birth: 1682
Darmstädter Stadtkreis
Hessen, Germany
Death: Feb., 1763
Orangeburg County
South Carolina, USA

Henry Schnell/Snell and his wife, Anna Barbara Zamin/Myers(there is some question about her maiden name), were born in Germany. They came from Germany on one of the ships that arrived in 1735. They brought with them their children Elias, Barnett, Henry, Adam, and another child whose name is not now known. This is believed because in 1737 Henry applied for and received 350 acres on Big Bull Swamp northeast of Orangeburg township. In 1739, after his marriage, Elias petitioned for 100 acres of land.

Henry Schnell/Snell Sr. was born probably before 1684. He was christened 3 Aug 1745 in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Henry, Sr. died by February 1763. (His will written 5 Aug 1760, probated 25 Feb 1763, Will book QQ, page 214. Names sons: Elias, Barnett, Henry,Jr. and Adam. Names daughters, Catherine, under 18 years old. Mentions Adam's children. Adam Snell, Executor).

Henry's first wife, Barbara, died 31 Jan 1756. He then married Anna Catharina Barrin. She died in child birth 3 May 1758 in Orangeburg, South Carolina.
