I am looking for a Leonard I. Smith who served an LDS mission in South Africa in the 1800's. He was from Utah. I know that's not much to go on, but that's all I've got.
This Leonard I. Smith converted my GGGGrandfather, Henry Talbot, to Mormonism. Henry and his family moved to America and crossed the plains to Utah with the Saints. Generations later, my Talbot ancestors married into a Utah Smith family and I'm trying to see if there is a family connection from my Smith family to this Leonard I. Smith. How ironic would that be?!
