Palmyra is my 2nd Great Grandmother. I have researched the Smith/Schmidt line and Caleb is, of course, my 2nd Great Grandfather. Ihave most of their Smith descendants. If you would like the info and a link to my family tree, just let me know.
I have visited Palmyra's gravesite in Fayetteville Tennessee, right next to Caleb's and I have some photos, too.
I like the story that you posted and have added it to my file --
