Thank you so much. I am in awe of this information, not believeing how gracious you are.
I never dreamed that i could find this information. I was looking for a crumb and a banquet appeared.
I hope to find a live person, with all of this, I could realize it.
This family, Oliver Thompson Smith, left Mississippi in 1859 and no one ever knew his location. That is what my great grandfather had in his bible. "They left for parts unknown" and were never heard of again.
In humble gratitude.
