Marie, you are definately on the right track. Especially if the Feribee Franklin Lee you are referring to was in Eden, Texas by 1911.
According to both the probated estates on Andrew Smitherman with the later being filed in Chilton Co., Al. in 1911 [after the death of his 3rd wife Lucinda Bishop. Andrew Smitherman had a daughter Mary Jane Smitherman Franklin who married Peter Franklin. They had 4 children: MARGARET b. 1856 who married Tom Glasscock and was living with the Matthew cox family in 1870. MARY ADELIA "Deliah" Franklin b. 12 March 1858 who married T J Hubbard, FARABY E FRANKLIN b. ca 1860 who married James B Lee and who by 1911 was listed as residing in Eden, Texas, and ALICE FRANKLIN b. 27 October 1865 [per tombstone] who married J Davis Glasscock.
For information on MARY JANE SMITHERMAN FRANKLIN's father you might try looking on the Bibb County Alabama website in the "First Families" section. Look for the family of WILLIAM SMITHERMAN SR. Now Mary Jane's mother was RUTHY WILSON who was the daughter of Revolutionary War soldier John Wilson. Another interesting note on this is that in addition to marrying Ruthy Wilson, Andrew Smitherman also married her sister MARGARET WILSON.
