I have a picture of a Snead family reunion in West Virginia in 1928. Most of the Snead's that I have researched are originating in Virginia and North Carolina. A family story is told that they( the Snead's) were actually political prisoner brought over to the United States to fight during the Revolutionary War. Once they received their weapons they fled and fought against the British. Living mostly in the Virginia's and Carolina's. There is a college in Alabama named Snead State located in the city of Boaz. There is also a small town in Alabama called Snead and in NorthCarolina their is a beach town called Snead Sound.
