I am doing research on the SMITH family for my cousins. JAMES M. SMITH, b abt 1806 in Harrison, KY, was married to JANE MARCHEL, 1827 in IN where their son ALFRED H. SMITH was born. Jane died in Keokuk, IA, where James may have died. Alfred moved to Oakland, Burt Co., NE. Alfred wed MARY E. WOODWARD, daughter of SAMUEL, of Quaker heritage & who also lived in Keokuk, dying in Hardin Co. There must be some connections.
