I am seeking information regarding the family of ELIJAH H. SMITH. He was b. abt 1835 in Barren Co., KY. He married ANN ELIZABETH "ANNIE" BOHANNON 28 Oct 1856 in Barren Co., Ky. She was b. abt 1834 in Barren Co., KY to GEORGE COLLIN BOHANNON and MALINDA J. NEVILLE. ELIJAH and ANNIE had 7 children all born in Barren Co.,Kentucky except Willy and Stella who were born in Hart Co., KY:
GEORGE WARDER SMITH - 1857-1946
MARTHA DANDRIDGE SMITH - 1859 - 1889. She m. JAMES DeVANE SMITH IN 1877. She died in Sherman, Grayson Co., TX
MALINDA CATHERINE SMITH - 1861 - aft 1935 in Dallas, TX
MERTTES M. SMITH - 1863
LILLIAN A. SMITH - 1868 - 1940 in Dallas, TX
WILLY M. SMITH - 1869
STELLA SMITH - 1873
ELIJAH H. SMITH can be found in the 1870 census with his wife and children in Hart Co., KY. He is listed as E.H. SMITH and was the assistant marshall of this census. In the 1880 census, only his wife and children remaining at home can be found living in Princeton, Mercer Co., Missouri. ANNIE SMITH appears as widowed. ELIJAH H. SMITH's occupation was shoe and boot maker. I found a record indicating that he served in the Civil War in the 14th Kentucky Cavalry, Co. D.
What happened to Elijah? When did he die? Where was he buried?
Any information regarding ELIJAH H. SMITH and his family would be greatly appreciated.
