I am searching for information on Robert Snowball, husband first of Dorothy Leefe, then of Elizabeth Milbourn and father of Jane Snowball. He was from Kirby Grindalythe and various members of the family are buried there, but I have not found information on his death. Elizabeth Milbourn Snowball emigrated to the USA and died here about 1861.
