My great grandfather, James A SMITH, b 1831, Kokomo, Howard County, is shown living with his parents on the 1850 Federal Census for Howard County, Taylor Township.
His father was James C. Smith, b 1794, VA, and mother Jane (surname unk), b 1801 TN.Siblings were Nancy, b 1840, IN; Isaac, b 1834, IN;and Joseph, b 1844, IN. (This is according to the 1850 census record.)
Are these names familiar to anyone on this list?Where would I find birth records for this time period in Howard County? Did Indiana conduct State census?Are they available anywhere?
