Doug, I've been trying to figure this out. In the 1880, District 8 Franklin, TN census... There's an Elbert Smith age 11 b.1869 g-son to head of house Robert Smith. In the 1900, Precinct 5, Robertson, TX, there's an Albert Bridges age 31, b.9/68 g-son. I cannot make the connection here unless Albert(Elbert), Ella Nora and George are siblings that are Bridges, listed as G-children to the Smith's. Were Robert and Nancy N. the maternal grandparents? There's a Mary Smith listed as daughter in earlier TN census from Franklin Co. I believe it was the 1870... census. She was born abt. 1855. The Smiths were living with another couple at that time, James and Narcissus Bass. By the time they Smiths reach TX, there's no mention of Mary. By the 1900 census, Elbert Smith is now Albert Bridges... g-son to Robert and Nancy. Elbert and Albert have got to be the same person...right?
