Like many other homes in Vance Co., the Sneed Family home was originally in the part of Granville Co. which became Vance Co. in 1881. The patriarch of the Granville County Sneeds was Samuel Sneed (1723-1806) who first appeared in a 1761 deed transaction in Granville Co. He was on a 1769 List of Jurors in Orange Co., and on many of the Tax and Deed records of Granville throughout the mid- to-late 1700s, where he and his son, John Sneed (1757-1808) also appeared in Caswell Co. in 1790, and thereafter, Samuel and several of his sons & their families were then in Person Co. His son, Stephen Sneed (1756-1821) remained in Granville, where he held several different offices, including County Clerk, a position that several of his sons also served in the ensuing years. Stephen married on Jan. 4, 1780 to Mary Williams (1761-1826), daughter of William Williams (1733-1775) & Phillis Beckham (1737-1792). William died at the age of 43 in Boonesborough, KY, apparently as a result of wounds suffered during an Indian attack. William's brother was Judge John Williams (1731-1799) the well-known justice and statesman who lived in Granville Co. and both men were among the investors in the Transylvania Company, formed by their cousin, Richard Henderson (1735-1785), which was a venture meant to expand settlement into what is now Kentucky.
