I am researching the Smoot family. I have gone back as far as Cyrus Smoot who was married to Fanny Jane Gamble January 3, 1828 in Bount county, Tennesee.
I am also trying to find ancestors of Margaret Jane Blankenship.She was married to Charles Morris Smoot September 8, 1892 in Cooke county, Texas. Her fathers name was J.W. Blankenship. They lived in Gainesville Texas before moving to Oklahoma in 1900 or 1901.She died in June, 1967 in Willow, Greer county, OK.
