I may have responded to this on another message board but this is a fuller response based on working things out during a bout of insomnia.
There are several of us seeking the parents of Lucy Sneed/Snead. The closest I've been able to come is a statement in a Snead/Horn/Ivey family history stating that "Lucy Sneed, another first cousin [of Ann Crosland Snead who married Lawrence Horn], married Elijah Liles." Ann Crosland Snead was the daughter of Israel Snead (Jr).If Lucy was indeed a true first cousin to Ann Crosland Snead, then it seems to me that she would have had to have been a daughter of one of her Snead uncles, the other sons of Israel Snead -- Daniel (executor of his grandfather Samuel's will), David, or Philip Buford/Burford Snead. If the "first cousin" isn't really correct then the possiblities open up quite a bit wider. I haven't encountered much solid information about the other Israel Snead sons to date--the Snead Notebook focuses on the descendants of Henley Snead's family (brother of Samuel Snead and uncle of Israel Jr. Snead).
I hope this is some help.
