Catherine I really appreciate your looking in the Chancery Court minutes for my Isreal Snead/Sneed.his wife Mary was listed as age 64 years, born Ga, daughter Rebecca, and Polly, one son Israel living with her all born Tenn. My A. Jackson(we believe Andrew) Snead married Sally Jenkins in Sumner co Tenn in 1836, believe maybe some of his cousins were living there at the time--he died in 1854 in Crittened Co, Ky, where his wife Sally/Sarah married 2nd Levi M Johnston and he moved the family into Hardin and Gatlin Co, Illinois.
there is one more record in Dist 4 of Jackson Co,Tenn in 1880 census that may be helpful to someone else searching this family.the family of Anderson Sneede, age 61 born Tenn, mother born Nc, father birthplace left blank, wife Elizabeth A, son James A age 21, Eliza J age 19, Celini A, age 17, and Sampson A Sneede age 14, all born Tn.
If you see anything of my family please let me know. Will now look to deed records of Jackson Co,Tn and see if Israel owned land there and maybe his estate was divided through the deed records. Margie
