Debi, I am looking for a John Smith b 1839 in NC. Unk who his parents and siblings were, nor do I know what county he was from. All documents have him born in NC.
He moved to Pope CO AR. where he married Lovina ?(Lavina) Love in 1857. Have no other info prior to his marriage in 1857.
Any connection to your Smith family?

Some of my family came from NC, their father was Robert SMITH(who is my great ggg grandfather),who had at least 4 sons born in NC and moved them to Tennessee in the 1800's, Jourdan, George, Joseph, and Benjamin(who is my great great great, grandfather).
While researching, I found in a 1880 census of Lafollette, TN, a John SMITH married to a Love SMITH with children. Could this be yours? Are you sure where he moved? Just thought it was interesting. If I can get any more info for you, let me know. I'm still looking to find who the wife of Robert SMITH from NC was.

Helen, I have lots of documents of John Smith from Pope CO AR. I even have John and Lavina's divorce papers from 1867 in Pope CO AR. Their son Jefferson Davis Smith is my husbands great-grand father, born and breed, and they are all from Pope CO AR. Just trying to pin point the county of John's birth. And looking at every Smith in NC. Do you know if your Smith had other family that stayed in NC, and didn't move to TN? Starting to get desparte!
Thanks, Sharon
