I do not know the origin of Robert Sharp Sneed's
Catherine, a daughter of Robert Sharpe of Henrico County, married a Snead and is mentioned in Sharpe's will of 5 Jun 1772.
She married WILLIAM SNEAD 6 Apr 1748 in Goochland Co., VA. However, this was NOT the son of John Snead and Susanna Poindexter.
The following is confusing as it confirms Catherine Sharpe's place in the family. However it does NOT agree with William's brother being John who married Jane Winn, nor does it mention that the apparent father - John Snead had married Susanna Poindexter. I suspect Snead families have been confused and confabulated.
A history of the Snead family begins with John Snead.He had four sons -- Henry (eldest; d. abt 1729 leaving a son Charles), William (bap 1690, St Peter's Par; had son William jr), John (who obtained a patent in 1745 at Piney Mountain), and Samuel.
Henry was not survived by his son Charles, or only briefly, because by 1732 William was living on the tract formerly owned by his father.He was still there in 1755.
Until 1739, William's younger brother John owned adjoining land which William bought from him for William's sons.John obtained a patent in 1745 on Piney Mountain, which he later sold. [Louisa Co. DB A, p 225]He had two sons -- John and William--who settled in Goochland Co.
John married Sarah Woodram in 1763 and had sons Benjamin and Claiborne and a daughter Elizabeth. [Douglas Register, pp 298, 44]
William married Catherine Sharp and had two daughters-- Catherine, b. 1748, and Martha, b. 1750 -- and a son Robert, born in 1754. [Douglas Register (register of St. James Northam Parish in Goochland County, VA), Jones, ed., p. 66.]
