I may be looking for the proverbiel needle in the hay stack. My grandfather went by William Joseph Smith but he hinted that he came from Strawberry Plains TN. where he was posably involved in a shooting. At this time he took on the name Smith.The story then is he went to Missouri and then to West Virginia. He told of leaving two sisters,Sarah and Angeline in Tennessee.He was born Nov. 9 1849. Any help would be greatly apriciated.
