Author: Ricaud, Lulu Crosland

Publisher: n.p., 1958


  • Though it's a reasonable hypothesis, there is no documented connection between Edward and the Crosland family of Yorkshire.
  • The story of Edward's supposed abduction and his middle name are "family traditions"; not impossible, but not supported by evidence.
  • There is no connection between Samuel Snead of Anson county and the various Sneyd/Sneyde lineages presented pp. 63-71.
  • The royal "Snead-Beaufort" lineage presented pp. 87-93 has no connection whatsoever to this family. Temperance, the wife of Samuel Snead, may have been daughter of Daniel Burford of Anson county. She was not related to the Buford/Beauford/Beaufort families of Virginia.
  • Arthur Pearce, son of Temperance Crosland Pearce Seale, did not die at birth as reported on p. 96; he is named in both of his grandfather's wills in 1814 and 1818.
  • In the list of Temperance Crosland Pearce Seale's children, also on p. 96, Elizabeth Seale is listed twice (once as "Betsy") and Edward Seale, who appears in later records, is missing.
  • On pp. 306 and 356, the book mixes up sisters Rebecca Crosland, who married Cosnahan, not Miller, and Ann Crosland, who married Miller, not Cosnahan. Both are clearly named with their spouses in their father's estate proceedings.
  • Several of the ancient lineages and immigrant ancestors offered in the appendix are not related to their corresponding allied families.

Content advisory

The "Tales of my Grandmother" by Toccoa Cozart related on pp. 11-25 are particularly overtly racist.
