My Great Grandfathers name was James Washington Smith. His wife was Louisa Jan Roysden.He was born 1843 and was the youngest of ten. Nine brothers and one sister. His father was Henry Smith and his mother was Gracie Lewis? He was from Whitley, Wayne County, KY, but after the Civil War moved to Oneida, Tennessee where he died in 1921. I am looking for any information on his parents or brothers and sister. He is buried with his wife in the Marcum Cemetery in Oneida.
