In Reply to: Re:Juanita --adding More on Sneed (Jacob) and others by Juanita cs of 29975

My Sneed researcher in Granville told me some of the AI Sneed wound up in Iredell. Same person who believes old Jacob Sneed is their patriarch. My Wilkes family lived on the border of Iredell and some moved to Iredell from Wilkes late 1800's. Im now trying to figure out if the Sneed issue came from Burke or Wilkes lines. Im going to start digging in Iredell to see if any of my Wilkes family in Iredell might have married a Sneed later on. Do we connect to the Sneed more recent through a cousin line or is it further back on the tree in one of our direct lines where I have no record. All I know is my uncles tow DNA matches that tie Sneed and McMillan are close matches. He shares a lot of DNA with these people.

I have been emailing my Piercy/McMillan Burke Caldwell family who have DNA tested to see if they are getting Sneed matches like we are. I heard back from one of them so far. She has not checked her DNA kit yet but she sent me this below

I found a Sneed in my family tree. Lucinda Sneed, 1826-1900 married Hillard W. Ledford, 1830-1880. Lucinda was born in Iredale or Haywood Co. She was living in Clay Co., Shooting Creek when she died. She was also mentioned in Cherokee Co. in a earlier census. Clay co. was formed from Cherokee Co.
Lucinda's father was John Sharpe Sneed. John's middle name is one of my Surnames.

Lucinda's daughter Belva Belle Ledford married Elias Marion Clayton. Elias was my grandmother's brother.
