Angeline, if you would, look at my reply post to Jason, particularly the part about the John Smitherman's [one who was a son of Andrew and the other who was a grandson of Andrew [the 2nd was the son of William Priestley Smitherman and Tabitha Jane Rhodes] I just looked back at the data on your Johnson Smitherman and according to the 1920 census he would have been born around 1875. It is quite possible that he was listed in the early census records as John Smitherman born ca. 1874 and was a son of Andrew, and that the John Smitherman in Chilton Co., Al. who married Dovie Dutton really was the son of W.P. and therefore grandson of Andrew. Do you have any idea where Johnson Smitherman is buried or even when he died? I have looked and cannot find him listed in either the Cemeteries of Chilton Co., Al. or Cemeteries of Bibb Co., Al., nor can I find any of his children. If you don't mind email me direct and I will see what I can do to help you. Especially since Kay has had me going through ALL of my Smitherman census records in Alabama looking for different Smitherman's.
