Some information that I have found states this: There were three Israel Sneads One in Louisa Co. One in Orange Co. and one in Caroline Co. Only mention about your Israel is this: Israel of Caroline Co. married Mary Crutcher, daughter of Thomas Crutcher. Genealogical work "Descendants of Thomas Crutcher, died 1722, Essex Co. Virginia by Elizabeth W. McNamara, 1987, gives information about this Israel and Mary. It also states that Israel died in 1787. It makes mention of his father being possible Samuel Snead but no absolute proof is stated. I found this in the book "Snead Notebook compiled by Elizabeth Cowan Snead Shue. the book can be obtained by corresponding with Elizabeth S. Shue P.O. box 128Walland, Tn37886-0128. Her book essentially covers the history of Israel Snead and Johannah Henley Snead and their descendents.
