I dont have all the answers for this one.The fact that the Snelling surname was spelled soooo many different ways on early records is not much help.

But if you check out the 'tree' site you will see Hugh Snelling listed
...Kentucky as his 1802 birth place on census records
...He first married in 1822 in Illinois
...we can place him in Miller County, MO by atleast 1838.1838 is well before the Civil War.
Hugh & atleast two sons Berryman & Redman Snelling all served on the UNION side for the Civil War.
CSA...refers to Confederate Military..I doubt this was from the Hugh Snelling side.
Good luck in your search,
