This is what I know about Rachael Smith Spradlin. She was born in 1831 in Whitley County, Kentucky and died before 1877. She married James Spradlin on January 08, 1855 in Whitley County, Ky. They had 2 children John Riley Spradlin born May 10, 1858 and Ambros M. Spradlin born April 10, 1860.

Her brother was Elijah Smith who married Sarah Elizabeth Butler. I think their parents were Henry and "Sindi" Smith. They may have had the following siblings: Ransom, Henry,
and James.

Do you know know anything about Vesta's children? I know who they married but don't know if they had children.

Hi there, you have all the spradling info very close to actualities, except there is a couple of other possibilities regarding the marriage of James Spradling and Rachel Smith. All the Smith information is wrong however. Contact me if you want the information that I have .

My grandfather was Granville Smith, married Rosina Wooten. He had a sister Mary and a sister Cordelia (Cordie). They lived in Columbia, Kentucky. Is there any relation?

I am looking for ancestors of James Washington Smith born 1843 in Kentucky and died in 1921 in Oneida, Tennesee. He was the youngest of ten children with eight brothers and one sister. Do you have any information on Rachel Smith that may show he was her brother. His father was henry Smith from Kentucky and his mothers name in not clear on his death certificate.

Was Rachel Smith's father Henry Smith? I have a Rachel Smith connected with the Spradlin family in my files that I am a descendant from that family. Would love to know more about them.

I don't think so. Henry Smith born circa 1800 had one daughter who was born prior to 1844. She would have been born in Whitley, Wayne County Kentucky. Sorry.
