Seeking any information regarding a Solomon(1) Snead and wife Martha (maiden name unknown)of Richmond County, NC. Solomon and Martha sold property in Richmond County in 1787 (Deed Book B, p 171) to Anquish McDuffie. This Solomon had received this property via land grant in 1784 (Deed Book D, pp 134-135).

There were at least two Solomon Snead's living in Richmond Co. during this time frame:

Solomon(2) b.abt 1744, d.1817;m. Rebecca Webb abt 1766; son of Israel and Johannah(Henley) Snead.

Solomon(3) b.1766,d.after 1836;no spouse identified to date; son of Henly and Mary(Burford) Snead. (this Henly Snead, brother to Solomon(2) above, i.e. Solomon(3) nephew of Solomon(2).

To date I have found no record which definitively indicates whether Solomon(1) was either Solomon(2) or Solomon(3) or some other Solomon. Any information about this Solomon/Martha Snead will be appreciated.
