I very much appreciate your offer to help see if there is any connection. I'll give you as many names and dates as I have, which unfortunately, aren't too many.
Going by my ggrandfathers name, Robert Edward Snead, I found him on the 1880 census records as a 12 yr old. child. It shows his father as George Washington Snead, age 45, born in and both of his parents from N. Carolina. His wife, Harriet, age 40, born in Georgia and both of her parents from S. Carolina. Their other children were Thomas, Elizabeth, Emma, Loula and Henry.
My great great grandparents, Robert Edward Snead and Mary Francis Stowers Snead, both shown to be from Atlanta, GA per my ggrandfathers birth certificate. I have estimated Robert E to be born 1870. I have also found that he went by R. E. Snead in later years, as did my ggrandfather. Their chioldren were:
My ggrandfather was Rupert Earl Snead, b. 15 May 1892 in Atlanta, GA, d. 25 Aug 1963 in Houston, TX. His siblings were: Paul Eugene Snead, b. approx 1898/99, d. 25 Nov 1943; Charles C. Snead, b. approx 1902, d.2 Feb. 1954; James P. Snead, b. 22 Jul 1909, d.June 1971; and a sister named Flora, but I have no information on her. All were born in Atlanta, Fulton Cty, GA as far as I know.
Rupert Earl was married to Daisy Wilbanks, also from GA. Daisy died 11 Oct 1923. They had 3 children: Rupert Earl II, Mary Elizabeth (my grandmother, b. 2 Mar 1915, d. 13 Feb 1996); and Willie Marie. Rupert married Edna Mae Damon in Sept 1925. The family settled in Houston, TX approx. 1929-1930.
Paul E. married to Sara(h), had 3 children: Paul E. Snead, Jr,
Jack I. Snead (who later married Frances Finch), and a daughter (I couldn't make out the name on the census). I believe they remained in the Atlanta area.
Charles C. Snead married to Alberta, had 2 children, Charles B. and Roberta. They lived in the Atlanta area and Charles was a commercial artist, at some time working for the Atlanta Constitution newspaper.
James P. Snead became a priest and was ordained in Ohio in June 1939. I know he served at a church in Alaska.
The only information I was given about Flora was that she married a policeman.
I don't know if this is enough information to help, but it's pretty much all I have except more current info on my grandparents, mother and my generations.
Thank you again for researching this for me.
