I have a M. A. Smart (60 yrs.old) living in Franklin Parish in 1900 census. Abiding with this head of household was a son John born about 1873 and a daughter Calley Delone (Howard) and her three children. I understand that this Smart family had a lot of children. I have heard of a Luther Smart and a Mack Smart from around that time also living in Franklin Parish. If any of these names ring a bell I would love to hear from you. This is my brick wall because the census says that M. A. Smart was born in Texas and I forgot to see if they were male or female. My father wrote in the family bible that a Mary Rogers was a grandmother to someone. As I know all my fathers ancestry it would have to be my mother's grandmother and maybe the M. A. Smart that was head of household in 1900 since one of the Howard children living there was my mother. Any help would be appreciated.
