My name is Debbie Barney and I live in Vidor TX. My biological father's name was Paul Stuart Smallwood from Akron, OH. I never knew him and my mother will not tell me ANYTHING about him. I have found out a few things myself and even from her by being really sneaky! I do know he died in Ohio in Jan.1991. I know he was in the navy, his birthday was July, 1939. He and my mother were married for a very brief time (not sure how long) when they were teenagers due to her pregnancy. She married my step-father by the time I was 2 so I know they couldn't have been together very long. I was born in Mar,1956. My brother was born in Oct, 1958 so they were defintely not together by early 1958. I didn't even know until I was older that the man who raised me was my step-father or that all my siblings were not my full siblings. I know Paul remarried and had other children, which means I have other siblings out there somewhere that I would like to know about. My mother once said she thought his family was from TN. I don't know if this was true or something else she made up to throw me off because she knew I was looking for him. Any of this sound familiar???

You should contact She has the Smallwood family from Jackson Co., TN to Sherman, TX. Her line comes from Benjamin Alexander Smallwood. I believe your line would be from E Douglas Smallwood who was Benjamin's brother. I am not descended from either line, but their mother, Clarissa Mahaney was my great-grandfather's sister. I spoke with her last night and she said to contact her. Hope she can help you.

if you're still available, i have questions regarding the smallwoods in McNairy County TN. one in particular, the wife of George D Smallwood, who went by the name "Buenenstu" or Buenevera or something like that. Would like to know her maiden name & what the "source" of her given name is.

I have some information on the Smallwood family also. Everything is still packed away from the storm but I hope to get back on things soon. If you don't mind sending me your email address, I will send you what I have. George Day Smallwood and his wife were first cousins. Mary Annabella Buenavista's father was Andy Smallwood and George Day's father was Churchwell Bell Smallwood, Andy's brother. There are a large number of researchers trying to find the ancestors of Churchwell and Andy. No one has had any luck. Regards, Catherine
