I'm hoping to find some info. on James "Billy" Smith 19 Mar 1839-16 Aug 1923. Buried in Pleasant Hill Cem. He was the son of William Smith (1811-1880).
James married Delilia O. (Vickemore) Owens 1881 Jeff. Co. According to this marriage record this was his 4th marriage.
According to his obit it states he had a surviving son and a daughter but they were un-named. I believe that the son may have been Jos. H. Smith born 10 Mar 1869 Jeff. Co.-16 May 1922 Clinton Co., Ill. Married Della (Moore) Gobble 1914 Bond Co., Ill. His death record states his father was Jim Smith born Mt. Vernon, Ill. and mother was America Moore born Ill. I've found a marriage for James Smith to America Moore 10 Feb 1867 Marion Co., Ill.
I can not find an America Moore on the 1860 census nor can I find James, America and children in the 1870 census.
I'm told that James Smith may have married Lydia Lyle but I can't find this marriage. In any case I'm still trying to find his other two marriages and info. on his son and daughter. Its believed that the daughter's name might be Ann??
Any help or info. would be greatly appreciated!
