Mary I believe my smith family came to Sevier county Ark from McNairy county Tennesse. Oldest was John b.1795 Ky and Prudy B.1800Tm with some of their children and grandchilden. son John Smith and wife, daughter Sarah and son Thomas smith and wife Caroline and Thomas and Carolines son John Thomas Smith, another daughter Sarah was born in Sevier county. Thomas and Caroline (my g grand) and John Thomas Smith my grandfather and sister Sarah remained in Sevier County-later moved into Indian Territory. John and Prudy Smith had other children who settled in Lamar County Texas and one in Georgia. My grandfather John Thomas married JoAnn Elliott and my dad Jeff as one of their 11 children.Sarah married a Gentry but have lost track of her even through their are Gentrys in Okla and Sevier County (may be her family). John Smith B1795 was the son of immigrant from Atrim Ireland to Christian county Ky and had about 12 children.
The only name I can recall of the Smith who lived in Lamar County Texas was Jordan Smith, nick name Jert.
