Hi Connie--

Where is McNeill Cemetery?

Here is what I have recently found on Cape.


Cape (Capon) F. Smith, born 1861, (hereinafter Cape Smith Jr) is found in the 1880 US Census of Geneva County, AL in the household of Capon F. Smith, born 1828 (hereinafter Cape Smith Sr.). Cape Smith Sr was a civil war veteran and quite a bit can be found on him in that capacity. Both parents of Cape Smith Sr are indicated to have been born in NC.

You can word search the following document for “Capon” to find the listing.

Also shown among Cape Smith Jr’s several brothers and sisters are Robert, Charles and Margy, known by a family word of mouth account to be his brothers and sisters.

I believe from other sources that Cape Smith Jr is buried at the cemetery in Jeddo, Monroe Co.


The wife of Capon F. Smith Sr. is shown as Nancy, age 42 (born about 1838).

Capon F. Smith Sr. shows up in the 1860 US Census of Walton County, FL in the household of Reason Smith, age 58 (born about 1802). Reason’s wife is not shown.

You can word search the following document for “Reason” to find the listing.

Nancy is listed as Nancy C., and there are several Crutchfields in the household, raising the possibility of her maiden name being “Crutchfield”. There is also a Cape listed as 2/12, who doesn’t show up in later censuses. Reason’s place of birth is listed as SC.


This document from the 1850 US Census of Henry County shows a Ceape Smith, age 23 born SC living with an Alice, age 18, born AL.

This document, also from the 1850 US Census of Henry County shows a Capore Smith, age 21 born AL living in the Whithead household, which included an Alice age 15 born AL (parents shown as born SC).

Reason Smith is apparently listed in the 1830 Henry County AL census.
