In 2000, Joanne Harley posted a long note to SCCHESTERFIELD-L I’ve extracted the relevant bits below: ******** I would like to post the following in order to reach as many as possible that might be interested in the information I have recently uncovered among the stack of papers in my great-aunt 's papers. She was at one time the historian of the Macleod Clan in SC and was constantly accumulating family histories. … … … Lawrence Van Horn was married to Ann Crosland Snead [document actually says Sneed] March 25, 1802, in Richmond Co.,NC. He was a great deal older than his wife. They had the following children, all born in Rockingham, NC: … … … 6. Daniel Alexander Horn, b. March 3, 1818, married 1854 to Isabella Jane Hunter McLeod, Marlboro Co.,SC, married 2nd to Miss Missouri McLeod of Brooks Co., GA, Jan 20, 1878. 7. Ann Crosland Horn, b. Aug. 6, 1820, married 11,11, 1841 to W.L.J. Reid, Cheraw, SC … … … Mrs. Horn [the document actually says “Grandmother Horn”] was Ann Crosland Sneed, born on April 11, 1783 at her father's plantation at Sneedsboro, NC near Rockingham,NC. She was a great belle and was the daughter of Israel Sneed and granddaughter of Major Samuel Sneed (Lord Sneed). Major Samuel Sneed was an officer in King George III's Army at first, but both he and his son Israel afterwards joined the Colonial Army and both served with distinction during the Rev. War. ********* I have the same document (a family history of the Horns and Iveys compiled by gggaunt Nannie (Nancy) Evans Horn who married Furney Camellus Ivey and continued by her son Ernest D. Ivey through the early 1940s). It goes on to say: * * * * * * Grandmother Horn’s [that is to say Ann Crosland Sneed’s] mother’s maiden name was Temperance Buford. * * * * * My question is – do the last two extracts, taken together, make sense? I’m not a fan of consensus genealogy, but I haven’t been able to find any credible evidence that Israel Sneed ws married to Temperance Buford. I have seen genealogies that have Samuel Sneed married to Temperance Buford. I find no evidence of an “Ann Crosland Sneed” (or variants) except a cryptic family tree in the McLeod Genealogy site that may have come from this same source. I do get hits on Ann Sneed/Snead Crosland, who was married to Edward Crosland (a line apparently well documented).
Enlightenment as to the connections between Sneed/Snead, Crosland, and Horn would be appreciated – particularly if there are pointers to primary sources.
