I have worked many years on my family tree. Of course there's a set of grandparents that I cannot find very much information about (I have most of their children's names)
However, I cannot seem to find much information about them (beyond 1870/1860 census).
I would love to figure out, just where my grandfather originated from? He is John Snead b.1846 d.1924 m. Elizabeth Patrick.
It has been said by my grandmother (Who's now 83yrs old) that his family was possibly from the New York Area?
There no records previous to 1880, as if he possibly located from another state (Which Ive been searching as well) I hope someone stumbles across this and I am able to open a "door"
