Surnames: Smith, Tankersly
Hello all,

I need help on Leroy Smith, b 1814 in SC and married to Elizabeth Tankersly and had one son, Benjamin Harrison Smith in 1850. The 1850 Census has him Cherokee Co, AL right after Benjamin was born. From there its tricky. Family history says he ran off to Texas to fight in the Mexican-American War, which was already completed, and meet up with his older sister (we don't know anything about her). We can find an 1870 census in Angelina Co, Texas.

Or, he found another gal to marrie for a few years in Alabama, joined up with the 9th Alabama Cavalry as a Sgt, captured and died in a prison camp in 1865 in Indiana.

Any and all help would be appreciated!

Any information
