I am looking for information on the parents of Robert SNEAD b. April 20, 1801 in Rockbridge County, Virginia. He immigrated to Sweetwater, Monroe County, Tennessee in 1824 and married Frances HENLEY. A search in Rockbridge County has yielded no information. It's been suggested that I check for a connection with the many SNEADs in Botetourt County, since that was a parent county of Rockbridge.

William J HENRY was born in Berkeley County, VA on 9/1/1748. He enlisted in the Revolutionary War in 1775 from Botetourt County. He married Elizabeth B. on 2/15/1780 of Botetourt County, who was born 11/11/1765 in Botetourt County. We are attempting to trace the family back from William J. HENRY. We have the lineage from his time to the present, but are missing the facts dating from earlier periods. Thanks,
