I'm trying to find anything in regards to my 2nd great grandfather, Charles H. Sneed. He was born in the early 1820's in Bard City, Arkansas. He married Sarah Cason and had 4 children, all born in Arkansas. There are no known parents for him that I have been able to locate, or any siblings, or where he died , thou I believe it would have been in Arkansas. I'm trying to get my brother to do a yDNA but hasn't agreed yet. If anyone has any additional information or tips on how to proceed, I'd appreciate it. Thank you

Will send you record

Charles was a second lieutenant Confederate Army,  captured and imprisoned April 12 1865, Salisbury North Carolina. There is no record, as there are of others captured that day, that he was released. Death seems likely, as the war ended May 9.

Sarah didn't answer 1870 census. It seems, entering each child's name individually in 1870 search, they were separated and some sent to live with a couple families in Tennessee - probably kinfolk

Thank you. I had no idea, it seemed that he stayed in Arkansas, being he was married and had children there. It helps to fill in the picture a little better. smiley
