I discovered your post 7 years after you originally posted it. I have been researching Sneads/Sneeds in the area for some time. I don't see that this family is related to my wife's Sneads, but I ran them down anyway. Lydia's maiden name was Lydia Ann Lilly. She was born in Summers County, WV. Her marriage to James Henry Sneed took place in Gillian, McDowell Co., WV on 02 July 1904. Both her death certificate and marriage license are online at the official WV site where you can find births, deaths, and marriages. James' parents were Wiley Everett & Martha Jane Farley Sneed. His grandparents were John T. & Sarah Foley Snead. James remarried to Ella Browning in Dott, Mercer Co., WV on 15 June 1919. Hope this helps.
