I understand, mine is coming 7-28 for 4 days. I will be totally wiped out. I was born 2-28-1935 to Eulis S. Smith born 11-22-1896 and Ada Elizabeth McWhirter Smith b.5-26-1901. I am 6th of 8 children reared on a farm near Aberdeen, MS. Thompson Smith and Josephine had a farm nearby, but sold it in 1859 and left for whereever. Thompson's children never heard from him again. I found him last in the 1860 Arkansas census with Josephine, Oliver Thompson and Mary Texana. According to the Lowry history, thompson and Mary Texana died in 1863. My grandfather was William Tillman Smith born 1854, son of William S.Smith b.1827 who was the elder brother to Thompson.

A lady in Montano sent me information that is available on internet. I do not have s subscription to Ancestry because Icannot afford it.
If you have it she suggested this file to obtain information:My ancestors and descendants family tree.trees.ancestry.com/tree/17357492/person/499706989 which is the tree for Zilpha May Billman b. 15 Feb 1902 Collier-Stewart Family Tree
She also sent me Martha Jane Billman:

I called the nearest Mormon Library in Columbus, MS but she did not know if she could get it or not. Their internet was down and she did not know when it would be fixed.
Do you know if one can purchase these files?
Advise me what you want next.
