My g-grandfather was Eldridge Applewhite Smith.He was born about 1865, probably in Mississippi.He married Loshier Ann Allen (b. about 1875).I suspect that he must be related to the Eldridge Applewhites that I've seen mentioned on this forum.They had 7 children: Geems A. Smith (b. 1893), Bertha Smith (b. 1896), Nancy Smith (b. 1899), Willie B. Smith (b. 1900), Anna Smith (b. 1904), Minnie Mae Smith (b. 1905), and Mamie Dell Smith (b. 1912).
Anna Smith was my grandmother.I would like to know more about Eldridge Applewhite Smith and Loshier Ann Allen.If Eldridge is related to the Applewhites or if any of this is familiar please contact me at email@example.com.
