Hi Pat, As I mentioned to Anne, I'd like to visit that area some day. I'm not sure where my aunt got the idea that Salina(sp?) Smith was Alfred's first wife, when it seems Salina and her sisters, according to your branch, married the younger Sartin brothers. I haven't looked for the actual marriage records, at this time. The census records will show who is living in the household. It's possible Alfred took Salina in for a time. Alfred and Major's brother, James, for example, was listed as a farmer living in Alfred's household, when he was nineteen. Yes, do keep in touch, and let's share the b.&d. dates, and as much as possible, the records or links from which the info comes.
