Margie, I was able to find a little more information on William Wiley Smitherman's family, but not on him. I do know that he was older than his wife, so I would assume that he was born between 1840 and 1855.His wife's full name was Mattie Ann Wright, bd. 31 Jan 1855, d. 11 Feb 1911, and had 5 children that I know of at this time.The oldest child was Cleveland bd. unknown; Newell David, bd. 11 Apr 1883, d. 25 Apr 1974(my great-grandfather), Grant, bd. unknown; White, bd. unknown; and Edith, bd. unknown.If you can find any other information on them, I'd be greatly appreciative!
