Hi folks!!! I hope you can help me solve my question!!
On the 1850 Census of Marengo County, Al. I find in Household # 168 Reuben B. Anderson and family which includes Stephen E. Smith, age 12.Household # 194 is Jonathan and Temperance Anderson.Household # 195 is Mary Anderson 87 years old and with her are Madison Smith, age 16 (my gr gr grandfather) and his brother William Smith, age 10.Household # 196 is Jonathan H. Anderson and wife Milberry and family.and Household # 199 is Alfred Anderson and wife Sarah and family.
Can someone straighten out these Anderson's and the 3 Smith kids?
My family lore gives William F. Smith, b. ca 1805, Franklin, Ga. d. 1839 Marengo Co., Al. and his wife Elizabeth Anderson, b. ca 1806, Ga. or SC.She also died in 1839, Marengo Co.They also list Elizabeth as the youngest dau. of Jonathan and Mary Bishop Anderson.I have at least 6 kids for them.James Madison, Ivy S., Martha J., Albert, Stephen V., and William W. All born between 1831 and 1839 and in the above order.
There was no mention of Elizabeth or her children in the will of Jonathan.Jonathan had a brother William.Could he be the father of my Elizabeth but if so why did Jonathan's family wind up with the Smith kids?????
