I found James Smith b. 1879, married to Maria Smithb. 1887, in my genealogy tree. Is this helpful? If possible, may we continue this dialoge. I believe we may have some family connections.

I don't know if this is any help but my great grandfather was Isaac Henry Smith and I had a Robert Green Smith. I am not familiar with a James Smith but perhaps I may have soem information. Look forward to hearing from you.

I don't know any information on his parents or siblings. He was married twice and his second wife was named Laura Bolden. He lived in Lynchburg, Virginia.
