I am a descendant of Benjamin Smith who is listed on the 1860 Henry County (Kirkland, Beat 4)census with his wife Elizabeth (32) and 6 children (Martha A.C., Mary A.E., Nancy E., Stephen A., William R., and Laney A.).My great grandfather, Benjamin J. Smith, was born to Benjamin and Elizabeth in 1864 in Henry County, Alabama.I believe that Benjamin Smith (great-great grandfather) was born in S.C. and Elizabeth was born in Georgia.He died about 1867 and that is all I have been able to find about him.
I did find a William S. Smith and his wife Sara living two houses away from Benjamin and Elizabeth on the Henry county 1860 census.I believe this could be Benjamin's brother.
Any information on this family would be GREATLY appreciated.Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank You! Dianne
