Hi, Yavonne, I ama Tate / Alexander descendant and I thought the Smiths were the hardest to sort out ! My Gggt. Grandmother was Mary Frances Tate she married James Smith when and where I don't know they were both born in Georgia when and where I do not know I do know they went to Arkansas with their first 3 sons Willis, Marion , and James,born in Georgia they had more children later. They are onClark, Co. Ark. Census 1860 and 1870 and then I lost them. My Ggt. Grandfather Marion Calloway Smith married Sallie Mahala Alexander in 1871, in Clark Co. and Willis also married a catherine Alexander there also.
Sallie mahalas mother was Sarah Elizabeth Cobb Hinds Alexander she was married to John Porter Alexander , but I think he had died because she signed for Sallie to marry . Marion and Sallie M. went to Texas and had several children then they came to Indian Territory and settled a few miles from the Red River and near what is now Duncan,Oklahoma Stephens, Co. Sallie Elizabeth later came alone,to live close to all her children about 1895 . They are all three buried in the ''OLD'' Duncan City CEMETERY. I have all three Death Certificates . I can only hope you have ran across my Alexanders and Tates , and hope you reply at your convenience. Thank you , LaVon Allen
