George Angelo and Elva Smith

Surnames: Welch Smith Angelo Carlton Young
I am looking for any direct descendants or someone who can put me in contact with direct descendants of George Angelo and Elva Smith. I believe they had 3 daughters by the names of Mary, Charlotte and Brenda.

I have a letter from Elva's father Theophilus Smith to my great grandfather Charles Young. They were first cousins. Their mothers, Lucy and Emma Carlton, were sisters. Theophilus claimed to be in possession of a Welch family bible that originally belonged to their great grandfather William Welch, a son of Ephraim Wesley Welch Sr.

At the time Theophilus and a cousin who was also a Welch descendant were desperately trying to prove their Native American heritage with the claim that William Welch and his wife Delilah Haney were both half Cherokee. Letters from the other cousin goes into more detail about this.

I am hoping to find the descendants of George and Elva so that I can exchange information and pictures as well as speaking with/meeting some new cousins. Im also interested in speaking with any descendants of my Welch family. The best way to contact me is on social media.
