I looked in my files and I have this info on Simon. I have NOT verified it. If I find anymore in my notes I will post it. I don't know that he has a connection to any of my lines, but it is family tradition that two of my ancestors were Indian. Hense, I collect the info on known Indian Families in the Pulaski Co., KY area. I did't keep the info on the later generations.

Death: 1 MAY 1916 in Adair Co., KY 1 Burial: Smith Family Cem. Adair Co., KY Burial; Smith Family Cem., Milltown, KY
Note: [Smith.fbk.FBK2.GED]
Sarah had been widowed from Elijah Smith since 1898. She met and married a Samuel Miller in Casey Co., KY. Don't know for sure if she ever divorced this person. When she died in 1916, she had already returned to Adair Co., and the Doctor who signed her death certificate, didn't know her as being a Mrs. Miller, only knew her for years as “Mrs. Smith”. Thus, her death certificate is in her Smith name not Miller.
