This is my GGgrandmother born abt 1841, Miss and died abt 1911, TX. She was married to James W Smithhart. They had a daughter named Cynthia Elizabeth born, 12/25/1866; died 1/17/1947 Mt. Enterprise, TX. Cynthia went by Bettie. I am seeking information on Effie. I know she was married to a Loper before married to Smithhart.
It is possible she was native American and was part of Trail of Tears. My mother can remember family talking about her mother family and possible being native American.
