I have been working on this puzzle since last night. James Leonard Sneed is the son of Louisa Catherine Sneed. She is the daughter of John T. & Sarah Foley Sneed. John T. was originally from Patrick Co., VA. That's as far as I can go back. Actually I think John was the son of Samuel & Esther Snead of Patrick Co., VA, but I can't prove it yet. James Leonard had a brother Freddie, listed in the 1910 Census. Actually the census states that Louisa had had 4 children with 2 living. Louisa's first marriage was to William Christopher Roles in 1907 in Raleigh Co., WV. According to the 1930 Raleigh Co. census they had divorced and Louisa was living in James Leonard's household. Louisa remarried in 1934 to Roscoe Clay, and then died in 1937. I don't know anything about Freddie, perhaps you do. I found James Leonard in the 1930 Census, but could not locate him anywhere in the 1920 Census. In 1930 he had four children: Clytie, Kermit (provided information for Louise's death certificate), Catherine, and Arnold. I think Kermit moved to MS where he died in May 1987. I know nothing of the other children. James Leonard married Rebecca Foley in 1915 in Raleigh Co., WV. I cannot find when or where James or Rebecca died. You can make free copies of Louise's marriage licenses, as well as James'. Also Louise's death certificate can also be copied at the official WV website where you can find copies of births, deaths and marriages. Perhaps you already have your questions answered, but I saw your message for the first time last night. I hope I have been of some help.
