Godfrey Snowball *

Godfrey (along with jane and Jenny) is one of the children with Nathaniel and Violet Snowball in the Birchtown Muster - they are not in the Book of Negroes. Both Jenny and Godfrey are not listed with an age nor a last name- here they have been given the name of Snowball - but this is not certain - hence the * after it.
