I believe we are working on the same family line. Hamilton Snead is my g-g-g-grandfather. I show the following information. Hamilton Snead was born 1805/1806 in Virginia. His first marriage was to Martha Dunivant on 24 Oct., 1825 in Brunswick Co., Vg. I am descended through this line. His second marriage was to Nancy P. Martin in Tennessee. The year of this marriage was 1841. His third marriage was to Mrs. Ann Nowlin on 12 June 1865, in Saline Co., Ill.
I show his children as (1)Emma J Snead b.ca 1832, Tenn. (2) Mary C Snead b. ca. 1838 in Tenn. She is my g-g-grandmother. She married three times in Saline Co., Ill 1st to Elisha Maricle, 21 Nov., 1854, 2nd to Lindsey Durham 19 Dec., 1865, and 3rd to William O'Mohundro.
3rd child James W. Snead who was married four times (1) ______Jones, (2) Sarah A. Fly 18 Feb., 1858, (3) Sarah Ferber, (4) Jeanette Rhine, m. 8Dec., 1881. I found the graves of James W. and Jeanette, along with several infant children in the cemetery at Danville, Kansas.
(4)John A. Snead, b. ca. 1843, Tenn.
(5) Edward H. Snead, b. ca. 1845, Tenn.
(6)Charles H. Snead, b. ca 1849, Tenn. He married three times in Saline Co., Ill. (1) Elizabeth Smith 5 May, 1870, (2) Lucinda Rhine, 19 Feb., 1875, (3) Lucretia Bell, 12 April, 1880.
These are all the children I have identified, do you know of any others?I once spoke on the phone to a descendant of James W. Snead who lives in Kiowa, Kansas. I was going to go see her family Bible, but have never gotten around to it.
I would be glad to ahve any information you have on the Snead family. Yours Truly Eddy L. Emerson, 1216 W. Garriott, Enid, Ok. 73703
