David, Leroy was a son of Samuel M. and Rebecca Sneed/Snead.Samuel died in Pike Co., GA, sometime bef. 15 April 1826, and his widow Rebecca remarried after that (bef. 1829) to William J. Ellis, who administered Samuel's estate.
Leroy had siblings Dudley (a physician, like Leroy), who m. Sarah Ann Culbertson; Elizabeth Ann (m. James R. George); and Sarah Ann.
Samuel M. Snead/Sneed is found by the early 1800s in Burke Co., GA, and then in Monroe and Lincoln Co., GA, records.He seems closely associated with the family of a Dudley Snead who died around 1810 in Burke Co., GA.
I'm happy to have such information as I have on these families.
