Re: Jeremiah Sneed of TN & NC

In Reply to: Re: Jeremiah Sneed of TN & NC by Jim Cockerham of 1281

Hi Jim, here are the answers to your questions. The 1860 Census for Tennessee in McMinn Co shows Thompson, Rufus 51, Sarah, 51. Margaret 19 & Elizabeth 17. ED 49 page 286. There is also a Rufus Thompson age 18 & Nancy age 17 in Anderson C0 A-16. In the 1870 Census for TN there is a Rufuf Thompson age 63 Mc 169. I assume the name should be Rufus not Rufuf. I descend from Jeremiah & Sara's son John Taylor Sneed b 7 Apr 1846 in TN. I haven't been able to find marriage record for Jeremiah & Izza. I have the 1880 Census for North Carolina showing Jeremiah & Izza Alleghany, NC, Cherry Lane Township. Jeremiah is 59 & Izza 39. This is in ED 10, Sheet 5, line 17. On page 3 there is a notation for W J Thompson age 33 & his wife E. Caroline age 33. I don't know if this has anything to do with Izza's family or not. Sarah Sneed died 1860. I assume Jeremiah married Izza around 1865. The census shows their oldest child Calvin is 14 in 1880. I hope this is of help to you. Sincerely, Dennis
