Margie, Thank you very much for the reply. I am not related to William R. Smitherman. I am trying help a man in my Church. His Grand mother was Pearl Edna Smitherman; she Married George L. Ferguson date unknown. They lived in Selma, AL. According to the SS death index she was born 20 Jan 1888 in unknown: died 1977 in Selma, Dallas Co., AL.
I was thinking that she was William R. Smitherman's daughter Pearlie: but the dates are different.
Any futher information that you have on the Smitherman family will be greatly appreciated.
Do you have any information on the Ferguson's? Do you want any?
Harold p.s. my wife is descended from your William Latham's brother James Latham; through James' son Enoch Latham who went to Sabine Parish, Louisiana.
