The Snow home in Chesterfield, New Hampshire, built in 1762 by Erastus Snow's great-grandfather and grandfather, John and Zerubbabel Snow.
Zerubbabel SNOW was born on 14 May 1672 in Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA. He died on 20 November 1733 in Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA. Zerubbabel was a famous Indian fighter in the early days. Later he would move to the area around Concord, New Hampshire, and live there for a while. While living in Concord, he was hunting one day and as he was heading back to camp, as night was starting to fall, he became the hunted. A large pack of wolves chased him, until he was able to climb a tree. Zerubbabel fired at the wolves until all the balls of shot he had with him were gone. Then he cut the buttons off his coat and fired those at the wolves. The wolves refused to leave and hung around the tree all night. Finally at daylight they gave up and left the tree. After the wolves left, Zerubbabel climbed down and made his escape. Because of this incident, a nearby pond just east of the Merrimack river was given the name "Snow Pond". I have no other records of Zerubbabel's family except this, In the book "Snow Estes Journal" a grandson who had become the President of the University of Kansas told the same tale of him being a Famous Indian fighter.
