Maybe the obituary of Samuel will give you some idea of where else to look for the Smallwoods..
The Plaindealer (a newspaper of North Vernon, Jennings co, IN)... Samuel Applegate died at the home of his son-in-law, Fielden Lett, near Slate, Indiana, on June 5, 1886. The deceased was born January 20, 1800; moved with his father to Newcastle, Kentucky; remained there but a short time when the family moved to Clark county, this state. In early life he was bound to a Mr. Osten to learn the millwright trade, which occupation he followed the greater part of his life. In 1822 he was married to Martha Houghland at Pigeon Roost, Scott county , and then moved to Jackson county where Crothersville now is. To them were born five children, only two of whom still live. On June 9, 1834, death claimed the mother and the family circle was broken. The same year he married Miss Bridges. In the short space of three weeks, the cold hand of death was laid upon her and again the little family was left alone. June 9, 1836, he was married to Miss Ward, and one child was the fruit of this marriage. On May 5, 1856, for the third time, the mother was taken. The deceased then made his home with his son, Dr. Applegate, at Crothersville, until the death of the doctor himself, in 1872, when he, being afflicted with rheumatism and unable to walk or care properly for himself, went to Mr. Lett's where he has been kindly cared for and his last days were made his best, I might say. He was a great sufferer for the past six months, but was never heard to complain. He was held in high esteem and respect by all who knew him. (6/9/86)
