I would like to correspond with anyone who is a descendant of the family of Andrew J. Smith of Greene County, Arkansas.As nearly as I can determine, Andrew J. Smith was married at least twice, first to Angeline?? and then to Martha Ann??.The 1850 and 1860 census records show that there were at least 11 children born to Andrew J. Smith (John b. 1839, Mary S. b. 1843, Isaac b. 1846, James b. 1848, Cynthia b. 1849, Michael b. 1853, A. J. b. 1854, Eliza b. 1855, Charley P. b. 1857, Betty J. b. 1859, and Frasier b. 1860) although it is not clear which of the last few children were born to Angeline and which to Martha Ann.
I am fairly certain that Charley P. and Betty J. (perhaps Elizabeth) Smith were born to Martha Ann because they appear with her in the 1870 census in the household of J. W. Pool, the man she married after the death of Andrew J. Smith.Also present in the household were two sons by Pool: Jechoniahs Pool and Daniel R. (Richardson) Pool.
I am hoping to contact someone who might provide me with a lead as to the maiden name of Martha Ann as well as any other information about her or either her Smith or Pool children.I am a Pool descendant, and have only been able to follow Daniel R. Pool into the post-1880 censuses.Although he married, both of his sons died before adulthood, so my hope is to find a Smith descendant who may be able to tell me more.
