An ancestor traveled by wagon train to Missouri from Ohio. His name was Alexander
Smith. His wife was Mary Hursey. The year was 1839. I have a copy of the letter. Settled in Scotland County.
He had lots of descendants who remained in Missouri. Do our paths cross? Here are the
names of SMITH and Smith girls married names:
Elizabeth Ann Smith married Braxton Brown
Amanda Jane Smith married Jefferson Helms Miller
John Edward Turner Smith married Nettie Bodenhammer
W.H. Franklin Smith married Elizabeth Everard
Mary Eve Smith married William Gorsuch (my ancestor)
Adam Alexander Smith married Mary Hayden
James Lewis Smith married Isadore Gay
Town names are Gorin, Hurdland, Mexico, Warsaw, Jefferson City, Granger, Columbia,
Louisana, Centralia (all in Missouri).
Would love to share information if our families connect.
