It would be nice to find a connection to another Smith in Franklin Co. So far we haven't been able to find any relatives of David S. Smith that was married to Mary McDaniel. Somewhere David stated that he was born in Warren Co and they moved to Franklin Co about the time he would've been 8 yrs old. I'll have to look back through my papers and see if I see anything. I see in the 1850 census there is a 42 yr old Mary McDaniel that has young daughter named Mary McDaniel also. I don't know if that's the Mary that David married or not but I would think it is.
