Soldier married Rebecca daughter of Dabney & Elizabeth Pettus of Charolette County Virginia on 5 Apr 1779 in Henrico Co, Va. Widows father Dabney Pettus died between 1 Mar & 1 of Sept 1788.Soldier died 18 Sept 1819, widow applied 29 Mar 1847 Halifax Co, Va aged 85, sol's wdow's children were: Dabney Sneed born 3 Aug 1780, Betsey Sneed born 4 Sep 1785, John Sneed born 3 Jun 1788, Jincy Sneed born 17 Mar 1792, Polly Sneed born 17 Apr 1794, William Sneed born 26 Nov 1796 & H.
