***** there were no phone numbers listed. My interest is that of William Smallwood found in 1880 in Lead City, Nebraska, Lawrence County........
The Smallwood family is my father's Grandmother's side... I followed up on information I had for sometime, and found him in 1880...countinue to look thru the Nebrask.. I never thought he would be there, buttt there he was.So I encourage you folks to follow up on your information, guesses, and knowing for sure.
hope this helps someone. I may write a few of these places myelf and see if anyone has any informtion on my William A. Smallwood.
Hope this helps.. (this book was received in 1990 at the City of Denver Public Library: Denver, Colorado.)
I am not research families, other than that of my own, just had to share this information with others.
