Smith Family Originally from Benton County, Tennessee

I am trying to find some info on a Smith family who was originally from Holliday (Benton county), Tennessee.

I unfortunatley have limited info. My grandparents were Ben (Benjamin) H.(Harrison) Smith and Lora E. Smith who we think were born around Holliday and relocated after marriage in the early 1900's to Milan, Medina (Gibson county), Tennessee. They were both Smiths before they married.

Lora's mother's name was Effie or Effie Ann, and she had 4 siblings: Zade, Forster, Delia, Oscar. Delia married a Morris McIllwain (McElwain?) and we believe they had two children: Laura and Jessie. Oscar may have been married to
Camalie.

We think Ben's mothers name was Celie or something close to that and he had two siblings: Dan Smith, and Addie Smith. We believe that Addie married a Houston (Huston?) and had two children, Clarence and Madeline.

Also, I have been told that there is some Cherokee somewhere in the bloodline.

Unfortunately, this is almost all of the info that I have, and Effie is as far back as we can go. ANY info would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you!
