Texas Smiths, 156 Years

I have completed the reprint of "A Family History and Fifty-two Years of Preacher Life in Mississippi and Texas" by Rev. Wesley Smith, published 1898. I have added William Robert Wesley Smith's descendants and added an index. It is available at

If you are connected to this Smith line, including Anderson, Green, Stinson [Stephenson], Gurley, Carmack and McDougal, there are dates of birth, marriage and death on most of the descendants.

Hi- I am trying to locate the parents of a Mary Lou Smith Sansom. She married the grandson of Samuel D. SANSOM, and early Texas minister. Mary Lou Smiths father was either a Thomas SMITH and a Lizzie LYNCH or William Smith and Elizabeth Lynch. She was born in Lavacca, Texas about 1868. Her husband was a William Jefferson Smith. William Jefferson Smith's father was John Wesley SANSOM who is buried in the Salem Cemetery, a Methodist burial ground, in Llano, Texas. He died about 1888. If any of this rings a bell I would love to buy your book
