I know this is an ancient thread. I found it while trying to see if someone had traced Sam Sneads ancestry. My grandfather was friends with Sam Snead. He grew up just down the road from him in Bath County, VA. The property from Sam Sneads family is part of what is now the Homestead in Bath County, VA.
My grandparents said there was some distant connection to the Sneads but didn't know what it was. I think I have now found it. I was hoping to find Sam Sneads tree posted publicly. If anyone knows more on this topic, Let me know!
