I have recieved some information that some ancesters of mine have Changed their name from Snellen or Smillen to Snelling out of some embarassment. Does anyone have any info on why they changed their last name. Rachel Julana Colson married Jamed Frank Snellen of Lee County, VA and after she filed for James civil war pension, her sons Changed their names. I am part of William J. Snellen's (Snelling) line. Anything will help!
