He survived that War and returned to North Carolina, where in January 1786 he signed a security bond in Rowan County for the marriage of his half-sister, Elizabeth NEILL. Then he shifted west, stopping first in the Nashborough settlements, then continuing into Louisiana where the 1810 Federal Census counted him in Rapides Parish on the Red River. In 1819, his half-brother, James "NAIL" (NEIL) swore in Butler County, Kentucky, Court that "Andrew SNODDY died near Natchitoches Pecan Point."
