I am a GILLIAM researcher but have several SNEED connections that I would like to discuss.First connection: John GILLIAM (born 12 Jun 1733 – (Surry County) Virginia) married Sarah (FARRIS) GILLIAM [my direct line = MDL].[Her parents were John FARRIS and Sarah (SHARPE) FARRIS [MDL]. Sarah (SHARPE) FARRIS parents were Robert SHARPE and Sarah (WOODSON) SHARPE [MDL].
The SNEED connections come from the children of John and Sarah (FARRIS) GILLIAM = (1) James GILLIAM m: Frances (HOPKINS) GILLIAM [MDL], (2) Mary (GILLIAM) SNEED m: Charles SNEAD, (3) William GILLIAM m: Ann (SYMES) GILLIAM, (4) Sarah ”Sally” (GILLIAM) SNEED m. WILLIAM SNEAD, (5) Judith Ann (GILLIAM) BAILEY m: Callam Holman BAILEY II, (6) Agnes (GILLIAM) CLEMENTS m: JAMES CLEMENTS,(7) John GILLIAM, Jr. m(1): Elizabeth (BAILEY) GILLIAM m(2): Constance Annie (PARRISH) GILLIAM, (8) Jacob GILLIAM m: probably never married, (9) Elizabeth GILLIAM m: may have died young – not in father’s Will in 1794, (10) Martha (GILLIAM) DRAKE m: Francis DRAKE, (11) Taylor GILLIAM m: Mary (PARRISH) DRAKE, (12) Cecelia (GILLIAM) COX m: Edward COX, and (13) Susanna "Suchy" (GILLIAM) PARRISH m: George PARRISH.
Stay with me here as it gets complicated.Charles SNEED, spouse of (2)Mary (GILLIAM), and William SNEED, spouse of of (4)Sarah ”Sally” (GILLIAM), were half brothers if my research is correct.Their father was William SNEED (born 12 May 1721 – (Hanover County) Virginia) who married first Catherine (SHARPE) SNEED and second Elizabeth (BICKLEY) SNEED.Charles mother was Catherine (SHARPE) SNEED.
Catherine (SHARPE) SNEED's parents were the second connection I have, namely Robert SHARPE and Sarah (WOODSON) SHARPE [MDL] as shown above.
I would like to find general information on the SNEED family to add to both my GILLIAM and SHARPE family histories.Thanks
