Hi I'm looking for any information on Irvin or Ervin Smith (these are the 2 spellings I have for him) and Elizabeth (Smallwood)Smith. These are my great grandparents.
Irvin and Elizabeth were both raised in Redbird, Kentucky by a Buck and Jane Smith.
I am told that Irvin was a orphan so I am not sure if these are his true parents. Elizabeth was also raised by Buck and jane Smith and was a full blooded cherokee Indian.
Irvins Birthdate was May 10 1878 on his death certificate and on the 1900 census of Clay county (Otter Creek) his birthday was may 1882. Also on the Census he is enumerated in the household of John and Frances Wages The relationship to them was a SERVANT.
Elizabeth Smith was born in 1894 and I don't have much info on her but that she left Irvin for another man.
Irvin later married Allie Fair Williams on june 20, 1933 they together resided in Knox county.
Irvin and Elizabeths children starting with the oldest:
Martha Smith (married a John Brock)
Dewey Smith ( my beloved grandfather that passed Feb 4, 2000 in Harlan, KY)
Elmer and Allen smith (twins)
John Henry Smith
Sarah Jane Smith
Irvin and alli had no children.
This is most of what I know. If ANYONE knows anything on this family please contact me. Thankyou in advance.
