The Sneed that I know has a shared a DNA match somewhere with Piercy/McMillan/Wright family, My Piercy/McMillan/Wright lived in Patterson Caldwell ( was originally Burke County) named after Samuel Finley Patterson. My Piercy born to a single mother, got his surname from his mother and father unk lost his land around removal but reason he lost his land is unk missing paper!!!. They lived near Jacob Becks family who is said to be the Patriarch of the Cherokee Becks.
Now Jesse Moore of the Globe another court official also border changed over from Burke to Caldwell in 1842. This was not far from Patterson. This all near the SW Corner of Wilkes County. We also have a closer DNA match to Jesse's family somewhere. The Dowells (General J's family per DNA) married into Jesse's family. The Dowells also married William Whites family another court official of Burke and married the Coffey family of Wilkes county. My cousin who is strictly a Moore researcher told me she thinks Jesse Moore came out of Abermale VA just like General J and the Benge family. We have many DNA matches to Abermarle some close but until I can confirm these matches Im not saying anything!!
Now here is Jacob Snead on the 1790 census Burke. I believe this census is where Burke changed to Caldwell county in 1842. Caldwell was not only formed from the NE corner of Burke but also the SW corner of Wilkes.
William Lenoir court official and related to Samuel Finley Patterson Court Official and Indian commissioner of the Cherokee.
Jesse Moore of the Globe Court Official
The Coffey family (not sure if they were court officials, havent checked yet but were a wealthy family)
George Dowell (Oops in General J's family married into Coffey family, Jesse Moore and William Whites family)
Wards (dont know if they connect to Nancy but......we have others around them connected to General J)
Then there is Joseph White and George Miller. These two connect to our Martin/Smith/Shell lines that lived further south closer to Hildebrand Town but may have also had land near Wilkes. Per one of our DNA matches who was on the trail one of their ancestors a direct descendant of Joseph White. This family shares a match with us who are Cherokee Tickeater which they have Martin and I think though can not prove this all has to do with Martin!
Im about to go back in time and kill these guys myself! HA HA!!!!
