Ab's first wife; Fool about a Horse; no kids

181 Ab Snopes

180 Flem Snopes' Grandfather

Mink tells warden that his and Flem's "grandpaw had two sets of chillen" (Mansion, 114). So presumably this ur-Snopes was married twice. Reason to identify Flem, Mink and Ike as chillen of second marriage (Flem's Grandmother). Is this man and first wife ancestor of the rest of clan too?

179 Flem Snopes' Grandmother

Mink tells Ratliff that "our grandma left us all three ten dollars a piece" (Hamlet, 84). "Us" = Mink, Flem, and Isaac/Ike (youngest of 3).
Reason to think this is Ab's father's second wife, and these her only 3 grandchildren.
