The William Morgan SNEED that I was referring to was born in 1820 in Granville Co.,North Carolina, the son of Richard SNEED, b.1790 Granville Co,NC/d.June 28, 1861 Henderson Co.,KY & Lucy F. HENDERSON, b.abt 1800/d.Oct.29, 1868 Henderson Co.,KY. Richard's father was Stephen SNEED (1756-1821) who had served in the Revolutionary War under Colonel, later General, Daniel MORGAN, who heroically commanded American troops under several important battles. Stephen named his oldest son, William Morgan SNEED (1780-1849). From then on, almost every generation of Stephen's children and descendants had at least one son with "Morgan" in it, and most commonly "William Morgan".
One of Stephen's sons, was called Archibald Henderson SNEED (1786- Sept.19,1829) who did move from Granville to Wilkes County, Georgia, he married twice, 1st Abigail LATHAM RODDY (1798-1827),with whom he had 7 children:1) Emily Carolyn Dudley SNEED,b.1817-d.1881, Walton Co.,GA (mar: John H. DYSON),2) James Roddy SNEED, b.1818-d.bef.1895(mar:Anna Maria HAY & Nora C.____?),3)Isabella Elizabeth Williams SNEED (1820-1824 Wilkes Co.GA),4) Nathaniel Macon SNEED,b.1821/d.1880 Shelby Co.,TN (mar: Virginia LAW),5)Georgiana SNEED,b.1825, (mar: Jonathan BRYAN Jr.), 6)Mary SNEED,b.1826, 7)Sally SNEED,b.1827.Archibald's 2nd wife was Mary LATHAM RODDY (1795 -?)with whom he had 1 child, William Archibald H.SNEED(b.Oct. 21,1829,a month after the death of his father) Wilkes Co.,GA.William A., was a medical student in 1850, but I haven't found him after that.
Nathaniel M. SNEED, was also a Dentist, he opened his practice in Memphis, TN. He and Virginia's children were:
1)Archibald Henderson SNEED, b.Feb.1858-d.btn 1920-30 Shelby Co,TN (mar: Alice HOFFMAN)-their children - a)Nathaniel Macon SNEED (1891 Shelby Co.TN/d.1946 New Orleans, LA;b)Archibald Henderson SNEED Jr.,b.Jan.3,1893 Shelby Co,TN/d.July 1946 New Orleans,LA.c) Elvina SNEED, b.Apr.1895 Shelby Co.TN. d) and Charles SNEED, b.1901 Shelby Co,TN.
3)Nathan SNEED,b.1865/d.Aug.1875 Shelby Co.TN.
4)Augusta SNEED,b.1869/d.bef.1880 Shelby Co.TN.

My question is, do you think that your grandfather may have been the CHARLES SNEED, b.1901 here?
