I am the Great Granddaughter of Seymore Smith and Alice Hanks-Smith. I've been researching for over 6 years through census reports and with the help of other researchers and family members.I have a Family Tree with Ancestry.com that contain over 300 family members. Many of them are from Jasper,Boykin Spring and Zavalla area.
I was able to trace Seymore and his siblings back to their mother Batsey "Betsy" Samuel born 1854 Mississippi. Batsey lived with her sister in the 1870's in Jasper,Tx.
