Sneed Family Genealogy Forum
My g-grandmother was Vinity Sneed from Morgan County, Alabama. The 1870 census lists the following: John 22 and born in AL; William D. 26; Mary 56 and born in NC; Vinity 17 and born in GA.
Vinity married Joel Brumbelow and they had at least five children. My grandfather, Frank, was one of these children.
Vinity and Joel both died when my grandfather was about four years old. At the cemetery, various families "took the younger children in" and a Mr. W.H.A. Thompson took Frank. Frank also took the Thompson name.
