Betty, I have been researching the Mawyer family history for many years. I am a decendent of John A. Mawyer and Ailcy/Alice Smith through their sixth child Thomas W. Mawyer born 1823. The family of Ailcy/Alice has been a mystery for me but I can offer you this piece of information. The Nelson Co. Va. marriage records show that Jno. Moyer and A. Smith were married 14 December 1812. The security was by Field (maybe Fielding) Smith. It is most likly that this was the father of Ailcy/Alice. There was a Smith family that lived just over the mountain from where the Mawyer family first settled when they migrated into Va. If any of this is new to you I hope it helps. I am willing to share any and all information I have.
