I am looking for information on Palmer Smith
who was born about 1815 in Overton County TN.
He married Icey Louisa Johnson to them were
born 7 children: James Gilbert Smith, Anderson
Smith, Jesse Smith, Calvin Smith, John Smith,
William Allen Smith and Fielding Smith. Palmer
married Matilda Mackey, when Icey passed away,
and to them were born 5 more children: Peter
Smith, Martha Smith, Rebecca J Smith, Mahaly
Smith and Hezekiah Smith. I have traced James
and Anderson Smith to Coles County IL where
they both married Abston's sisters. James G.
moved on to KS and than Stillwater OK after
the Death of Mary Polly. Anderson stayed in
Coles County until his death in 1922. Anderson
had 5 children by his first wife: Sara A Smith,
Henry H Smith, Freeman Smith, Clarinda Smith
and Palmer Smith. He married Amanda Followell,
after his first wife passed away, and to them
were born two more children: Alice Smith and
one other. I know Palmer and Henry Smith moved
to MO. Any information will be appreciated.

Jim:

Would your Henry H. happen to be Henry Homer?

My grandfather Henry Homer went by Mr. H. H. Smith.

He is purchasing land in Navarro County Texas in 1900/1901.

He married Jan. 10, 1905.

Any connection?

James,
I am searching for information on my grandfather: John Anderson Smith. Do you think there could be a connection? On John's death certificate his father is listed as James Smith and his mother as not known. My grandmother filled out the form and I find it unusual that she would not know the name of her mother-in-law. She never talked of my grandfather or his family to her six children after he died. They were all very young. She did write in a post card to my uncle that my grandfather was born in Goose Creek, Texas. The permission to marry note for my great Aunt was signed by a Yancy H. Smith. John Anderson Smith had 2 sisters named Nettie, married a George Badgett in Harris County, Texas and Mrs. Robert Carroll. My mother was born in Batson, Texas. We traveled to Batson in 1978 and located a huge Smith cemetery. This did not help, and there were few people in the area that could help us. I have looked in census records and found my grandfather and grandmother but nothing before them. If you run across any information about these Smiths I would really appreciate the information.

Hi: There is always a possibility. I am researching Henry Homer Smith. On the entrance papers for the children being placed in the Corsicana State Orphans Home, it says he was born on Sept. 10, 1871 in MS. I can't find him. Since my grandmother had lost her mental capabilities, it is possible that this information or some of it is incorrect. My grandparents were married on Jan. 10, 1905 in Coriscana, Texas. We believe our grandfather bought property near Corsicana in 1901 and paid it in full in 1909. We believe he owned the Smith Hotel in Corsicana as he is listed as the proprietor in the 1909 City Directory but he may have only been the manager. My grandfather went by Mr. H. H. Smith. His wife was Willie Hester Locke. His children were Wister Allen Smith, Ethel Mae Smith (my mom), Henry Homer Smith, Jr., and Wilson Bankston Smith. I will definitely keep my eyes open for your Smith if you will keep a look out for mine. Be sure to check the county courthouse deed records, the city directories, tax records, and voters records. You can these on borrow on microfilm from the LDS. She may have been very distraught over his death or she may not have forgiven him for dying so young for whatever reason. She may have been very emotional when filling out the death form or the person writing things down may have just not filled it in. She may not have been the one to have filled it out unless you know this without a doubt that she did. Again, it may have just been too painful for her to deal with so she just didn't talk about it. Best wishes on your research. Who knows, we may very well connect.

Thank you, I have a saying: If you lose something, God knows where it is. I will keep asking and someday I hope to find my lost relatives. Just wish I could do it before my last living Aunt dies. She is 85 years old.
