I am researcing my wife's side of the family...
I am attempting to locate any information on a Lucian David Smith, my wife's grandfather. The only real record we have is her mother's (Leta Jay Smith) record of birth stating her parents names; mother was Dan L Jay, father was Lucian David Smith.
We know he was a ranch hand in the Ft Stockton area and that Dan L and he went to Mexico to be married in 1931. Upon returning to the states; Dan L's family had the marriage annuled and shortly there after Lucian left the area and contact was lost till the 1980's.
Leta J located him in Oregon, in the 1980's and before any real information could be passed on she passed away herself.
The information we have is that he worked for the Forest Service and later passed on while living in Oregon...
Any help or information would be greatly appreciated..
