I've reviewed your information on the Smiths.Unfortunately, these Smiths are not the ones in my family.My Andrew Jackson Smith (b. abt. 1857) married Emily Caroline (Carrie) Niblet FEb 17, 1876 in Lee Co, AL.Their children (that I can find so far) were William (Bill), Andrew Jackson, Jr. (b. 1881 d. 1921), Effie Lee (my g-grandmother) & David Nickerson (Nick)Smith.Caroline Niblet-Smith died in child-birth, as did the child.
The Smith's you are speaking of are familiar to me.I recently located a Will for both Andrew J Smith and his brother James S. Smith.A. J. Smith's Will (dated 08/19/1933) mentions a nephew; Frank L. Persons. I'll transcribe them and post online soon.....JOn
