I have no proof but believe that Anderson could have been the son of William and Priscilla Williams Sneed.He and his wife Elizabeth Minchey Sneed are in the 1860 Macon County census HH 760 with Thomas Jefferson 14, Temperance E. 12, John Laton 10, Sealy A. 8, William Ferdinan 6, James A. 3, and Eliza J. 2.Two doors away at 758 is Randall Smith and his second wife Jemimah Sneed 37.Jemimah is his second wife and daughter of William and Priscilla Sneed.They have 5 children together andone of them named Thomas.There was also a John Sneed in the 1850 Smith County census that I have always felt fit into this family.Spelled Snead.
Priscilla was the daughter of Tobias and Jemima Clardy Williams and was born in Caswell County NC in 1782 and named in the will of her grandfather William Williams in 1786 in the same county in NC.
The Sneeds have been hard to follow.Hannah Sneed in the 1850 Smith County census kept changing her age but she never married, in the 1860 Smith County with Richard and Sarah Jones, and in 1870 and 1880 with John and Permelia Sneed Goad who was her sister and my gr gr grandparents.
