Hello, Nancy H.Billingsley Brashears Smith and 2nd husband~ William D Smith traveled from Alvarado, Johnson County Texas to Sweetwater, Nolan County Texas in 1862(From the Billingsley Book of America).
Is there anyone who can tell me the names of the oldest cemeteries there in Sweetwater so I can hunt for my ancestor? And, if you know the cemeteries~do they have a list of those buried there in Sweetwater? Does anyone have an email of the Historical Society there so I can continue my search for them?
Nancy H. Smith Born 1832 Tennessee and 2nd Husband W(William) D. Smith Born 1829 Alabama went there after the Civil War. What would make them leave~work, perhaps in Sweetwater? He was a former conferate soldier but I can't find a record on him(I am not that savvy on that type of thing). What work industry would be in 1862 in Sweetwater Texas that would draw people to come there? Thank you so much for your perusal of my request. I appreciate it!!
