Again, I have found your information very enlightening and it leaves me to believe that we may very well have some family connection since all your information comes from Georgia and N. Carolina.
I have the delayed birth certificate issued in the 1940's by the State of Georgia for my ggrandpa, Rupert Earl Snead. That is how I learned the name of his parents, (my g g grandparents) Robert Edward Snead and Mary Frances Stowers, both from Georgia. I have reason to believe that Robert Edward was also married more than once. I have one great aunt left from that generation, although she is now in a nursing home and not too good at remembering things anymore. She lives a good distance from me now and I have very little communciation with her any logner. A few years ago she told me that her husband, Rupert Earl II (the oldest child of Rupert Earl) had also had a step mother named Mamie. The 1920 Census shows Robert Edward married to Mamie, with children Bessie and Jack. The 1930 Census shows Robert E. married to Mary Frances and no children were listed? My problem is that from some old letters I have and things that my aunt did remember, the names all fit in one way or another and at one time or another.
I find it all very fascinating and I love working out this great puzzle. Again, I appreciate all the info you sent and will keep in touch.
