Seeking information on Annie Laurie SMITH. According to her obituary she was born on Aug. 1, 1866 in Fairburn, GA. (Campbell Co.) She married John A. THOMPSON in 1883 in Fulton Co. John came to Texas first and worked until he could send for his family. They moved to Roxton, TX in Lamar Co. then Fairlie, TX in Hunt Co. in 1885 and then to Commerce, TX in 1914 where they lived until their time of death. Their children were Verner, Welborn Littleton, Gaynell, Aldo Clark, Robert Riley, Felton Gather, John Clinton, Agnes Evyonne, Wylie Verdell and Brantley E. all born in TX. I am seeking the names of both her parents and of her spouse John A. Thompson’s parents, since I am at a dead end, not knowing any brothers or sisters names on either side. Family stories say that the father of John A. Thompson owned a farm not far from Atlanta and died of pneumonia while serving the Confederacy and the family was sent word of this by messenger.
