It's funny that you mention that you have a Smith that married a Brown in your Family Tree. My last name is Smith and my wife's maiden name is Brown! I think we might make it (hopefully not) a bit difficult in our Family Tree years down the road! HaHa!
I appreciate your advice. I'm actually doing that at this moment! I'm hoping to get some answers that way. I have researched his sister and have alot of information on her yet no word on their Father S.J. Smith or their Mother Maggie Bradshaw!
I don't have any obituaries and the last Census that I can S.J. Smith listed in is the 1900 Census. I'm not saying that S.J. Smith is not listed in another Census after 1900 but that I can not come across it just yet.
