I found a Lawson Sneed in Florida in an 1880 US Census and one who registered for the draft for WWI.

If you know what county and or city he was in after moving to TX and married Francis Green, it would be easier to pin down more information. Do you have an approximate birth year for Lawson and for Anderson Sneed in Florida?

Thank you.

The 1860 census indicates he was born abt 1847 in FL, living with father Anderson and ?sister Hattie.  In 1870 he is living with another family, in 1880 he is a farm laborer, divorced.  Did he marry Frances in TX or FL?

The 1850 Census shows an Anderson and Elizabeth Sneed with children - Hettie of the correct age to be his sister, but the son is called William? 

An Anderson Sneed marries Harriet Hemp in 1861 in Jackson, and then they all seem to disappear, but then the Civil War soldier records are not all viewable online and there are Lawson and Anderson Sneeds among them.
