Sylvia, do you know any of Marrion Jackson Fillmore Smitherman's siblings? Could they have been: Maggie b. 1872, William Calhoun, Alpha C b. 1867 AL, Dora, Willie Luther "Will", Mary Virginia "Jennie, or Lena Bell b. ca 1877 ?
I have a Phil Smitherman listed in my work who lived in Pontotoc Co., MS. This same person was listed in the 1870 US Bibb Co., Al. Census as Jackson Smitherman age 8.
Email me directly if this is the same person. I have some information on this family.
