Hi delores. I was happy to get your e-mail query. My family, such as grandfather, great-grandfather etc. came from Kentucky. I haven't had much luck with making any connections though to tie us all together. I've got plenty of SMOCK and CAYSE (CAYCE) PEOPLE Listed in my database but they're just hanging, I can't prove we are related.
I will give you a few of the names that i know for a fact are my people and see if you recognize any of them or can make a connection with me and we can help each other.

John MARTIN was born in Lisbon, Grafton County, New Hamsphire and married a woman named Julia Smith. They had 3 children: Charles Henry MARTIN - born: 2/21/1843 in Lisbon, New Hampshire, died: 1868 in Lancaster, Garrard County, Kentucky. Married a woman named Lucinda (Lucindie) Walden. Harvey C.
