Rev Joseph Perkins Sneed (1804-1881), a Methodist Circuit Rider, who came to Texas in 1838, is one of my ancestors.I don't know anything about his wife Achsah B. Harris (1824-1860) except her name, birth & death dates. Their daughter, Emily Cassandra (Cassie) Sneed (1843-1866) was born in Gay Hill, Washington Co, Republic of Texas.Rev Sneed's father, James Sneed, was from Nashville TN and his grandfather, Zachariah, was from Pittslyvania Co VA.
Does anyone have photos of any of these people or details about their lives?
I have a special photo of Cassie's husband, John Matilda Barton several years before their marriage in his CSA uniform.Cassie died shortly after giving birth to her only child, my great-grandfather Joseph James Barton.I have an extra soft spot for Cassie in my caring for my ancestors.(In an earlier correspondence, I learned that the Sneed family had honored her by naming girls "Cassie" several times in the generations that followed.The Bartons did the same.)
