Cape Smith and Mary Jane Grissett are my great great grandparents, Charlie is my great grandpa and leon is my grandpa. my grandpa leon sister avie lou sent a letter and told us some things about her family i was quiet amazed
and confused at the same time need to said i can't figure out this family i hope i don't confused you but here it goes.
Avie Lou wrote this letter.
most of the history is from memories, births, deaths are from family records, my great grandfather Robert Smith was a civil war veteran wounded in that war he later died sometime after 1910,as i vaguely remember him at my grandfather [cape] home he had a long white beard.no rememberance of his wife they had five children  marge  liza  bob  tom cape [my grandfather] tom lived in alice texas and bob in pinson alabama aunt marge lived in halt fla and aunt liza lived with grandpa and family in monroe county alabama cape smith was married to mary grissett two children were borned to them my father Charlie and delia [smith] johnson, they were divorce when my father was very small, then my grandfather married Hattie woods at[blacksher later called uriah alabama monroe county]from that marriage came 4 children  tom smith  avie lee  suie dee smith  freeman smith all of goodway alabama except for tom who died in the 1960. grandpa [cape] died in 1935 and mary grisett must have been married in escambia county alabama as the grisett semed to have settled there in the middle 1800's.
John, the freeman smith is cape, this would be cape and hattie son i'm assuming, i have looked on familysearch.org and it show this

okay this is what i think i think that Cape freaman smith and hattie woods were married and the reason i said this is because of the birth so i not sure if cape smith robert son was married to hattie i think she might of got it confused in some way so if you find out the mestery of Robert smith and cape, let me know, hit a brick wall. does that make any sense to you
now this is what was sent to me from a man name rayford smith
cape smith married mary jane grisett on november 09, 1883 information.
Avie Lee Smith [this is cape freaman smith sister]
