In the 1850 census of Smith Co. TN there is an Anderson Sneed, age 31, with wife Elizabeth, 23. It shows two children, Thomas I., age 4, and Tempy C., age 2.
Also, there is a William Sneed, age 66, and wife, Priscilla, age 68, living in Smith Co. as well. It shows they have children; Hannah 30, Thomas 27, and Jeminah 23 (f).
Now, back up ten years to the 1840 census of Smith Co. It lists William Sneed with 2 other males in the household with him. One is age 15-20 ( possibly Thomas from above) and the other is in the 20-30 category ( could this be Anderson Sneed? The math works out, he'd be 21 at that point.)
I'm trying to find out more about Anderson Sneed and who his parents were. I know that Anderson shows up in the 1870 census of Jackson Co. TN. I couldn't find him in either county in the 1860 census so I'm not sure where he went then. IF anyone has any info please let me know.
