Hi, Most of my Sneads were in Gentry, Worth and Harrison Counties in Missouri, and that's hardly more than a "stone's throw" from St. Joe.I've been looking for a Preston Snead, b. about 1865 who was orphaned when his folks died in a measles epidemic in 1874.All of his siblings were taken in by relatives but I can't find Preston b. 1865, Albert b. 1871, Lucretia b. 1867 and Martha b. 1859.I don't know if they died also or not. I believe they were living in Nottoway County, Mo. at the time and they would have been very young when it happened.
Can you find out what the D.P. in your Snead name stands for?
