That's interesting... I know I've seen some Snipes show up from the 1800's in Ohio. I wonder if our Snipes came from that bunch. Maybe that would explain why their family accent was never as strongly "Southern" as all my other Kentucky relatives.

Hi, Lynda: I noticed your listing of Snipes in OH. The persons you have listed are brothers and sisters of my grandfather, William Thomas Snipes. They are all children of James Thomas Snipes, Malissa and Lilburn's brother. James and his wife had 10 children. Several moved to Ohio, my grandfather moved to Indiana and another brother moved to Michigan, one brother still remains in Floyd County. They were all born in Floyd County, KY. I would really appreciate any information that you would have on James and Lilburn's ancestry. I know their father was William James and their grandfather was William R, but I have nothing back farther than that. Thanks so much!

Thanks so much for the info, Lynda. I would really appreciate anything else you have on Susan Handshoe and William and Elizabeth's children. You can e-mail the info to me at So far my research has concentrated on Floyd County and I would not have known to look in Carter County for info, if it had not been for one of your responses to a Snipes inquiry in the Floyd County forum.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hey Catherine..

Which family descendant are you from? My grandmother is from Prestonsburg. I'm a direct descendant of William James "Bud" Snipes. Just curious where you fall into my family tree!
