Frances, I'm responding to an old message you posted on a genealogy message board.
I'm trying to find connections to Samantha D. Sneed (1846-1883) and her sister, Cornelia A. Sneed (1852 - ?).
My family tended to name their children after other family members, and you mentioned a couple of familiar names in your post.
Cornelia Sneed was my great-grandmother, married to John B. Jordan of Carthage, Smith County, TN.They named their son (my grandfather) Horace Riley Jordan.I'm wondering if my grandfather could have been named after the Horace you mentioned.
Also, you mentioned Archibald Harrison Sneed.I have a photo of a 2 year old Archibald H. Sneed taken in Memphis.Could this be your guy?I have no information on him, but seem certain he is connected in some way to my Sneeds.Contact me at:firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and I'll email you a copy of the picture.
Any information you could offer on Samantha and Cornelia would be very much appreciated. Thank you, Ginny
