I am seeking the descendants of Thomas Snead a freeman of Colour who resided in Goochland County. He was born a free man around 1829. I have a hundred years of documents on this family starting with Thomas ' freedmans passport. I would love to get copies of this data to his descendants.
I found them when I was on a hunting trip at age twelve in the 1970's. I was somewhere in the woods in Goochland County,and there Miles from no where was an abandoned house so old that trees the size of my waist were blocking the doors and windows. I was not into hunting so I explored the house and found a Cigar box of old Papers,and I have had them ever since.
I hope to write a book on these papers and I would like to know what happened to Thomas and his Family. He lived until 1870 or 1880 so I am hoping there is a photo of him somewhere.
