Talthia Tequemi McNeil Smith was also my great-great grandmother! My great grandmother was Lily Belle Hines (Mercer), spouse of Junie B. Hines. Their daughter Jessie was my grandmother who married my grandfather Lewis Layson Beecham. I would love to hear more about your family connection. My family tree on ancestry.com is under Elliott. Thanks, Judy Elliott Shipman originally from florida!
