Does anyone have any connection to the Smith's who are on this deed?
I had a Henry L. Smith b. 1833, GA & died 1876 Sabine Parish, LA & he was a Methodist Minister.
I have been trying to tie Henry L. Smith to parents/siblings for about 45 years. He served the whole Civil War in the 12th LA Inf. Co. A No. LA Cadets.
The Minister's seem to run fairly strong in his family since both his son's (Samuel A. & Raleigh Reese Smith) became Methodist Ministers and his brother-in-law who was with them in Sabine Parish, LA 1870 Census, William Reese McDow, also became a Methodist Minister.
I would really love to connect this Henry L. Smith b. 1833 GA to parents and siblings.
Thank you for your time.
