Thanks for your responce to my e-mail. After I sent the post to you, I have been wondering if I may have sent false information to you concerning the burial place of James W. Snead. Do you have a burial place listed that is different from Danville, Ks? The more I think about it, the more it seems like I found the graves of his wife and several young children in this cemetery. I also recall that James W. Snead appeared to own a number of plots which have never been used, but I can't in all honesty say that I have seen his grave site. As I think about all this, I seem to recall that he appeared on a list of persons buried there, but that I could not find the grave. I'm just not sure. The next time I have an opportunity to go to Danville, I will make a trip to the cemetery and check this out.
I live in Enid Oklahoma, about 75 miles from Danville, Ks. Where do you live? My line from Hamilton Snead is through his daughter, Mary C. Snead, who was first married to Elisha Maricle, a Union soldier who died in 1863. Their eldest daughter, Chrisina Clementine Maricle married Harvey Pearce Ragsdale. Their daughter Ollie Ragsdale married my grandfather Albert Emerson. I would sure like to have a list of descendants of James W. Snead, and would be glad to share my list of descendants of Mary C. Snead. Most of my information is on the Ragsdale and Durham lines, but I also have some information on descendants of James W. Maricle, who along with the Rhines and Sneads was also at Danville, Kansas.
I hadn't ever heard about the Sneads being part Indian, however I have done a lot of work on my immigrant Ragsdale ancestor who was massacred by the Indians on April 18, 1644 in Virginia.
