Just broke into geneology and am looking for information on Daniel Smitherman b. approx 1810, married Elizabeth Brown in 1836 in Bibb Co. AL, and died before 1849. Specifically I would like to verify his birthdate and location, death date and location, any offspring (I believe there were four- Newton, Mary, Robert, and Wiley). I would also like to confirm that he is one of Joseph(b.1794 NC, moved to Bibb Co. AL) Smitherman's six children. I am a direct descendent of Newton Houston Smitherman 1840-1928, whom I believe to be his son. Newton Houston moved to Texas after the civil war and settled in then Upshur Co. Texas. Anyone interested in this line of the Smitherman history I have an interesting typed autobiography of Newton's half-brother T.J. Allison (b.1850 Maplesville, Bibb Co. AL) completed 1927, that details his life and includes details on of his mother's family (Elizabeth Brown)in AL, as well as many of the Alabama families that settled in Texas.
