I am researching James H. Lewis for Plainview, Hale County Texas. His living there according to the 1930 census. His wife is Meline and children. There is a 70 year old lady living with them whose name is Freddie Smith. She was born in Alabama and lived in MS with James' parents until 1930 where I find with James' family. Her father was Henry H. Smith and Mattie G. Smith of Alabama. Her father was a preacher. Her brothers were Henry H. Smith and Guthrie Smith. Guthrie is living in New Mexico in 1930 as a newspaper editor and went on to hold an office for the state of New Mexico. I beleive this may be my family as my grandfather was Henry Homer Smith who died in Texas in 1920 of T. B. Any info on Freddie and what can be found out about her family will be greatly appreciated.

Hi: I do not think this is my Henry Homer Smith's family as Guthrie Smith, newspaper man in Arizona, said his brother's whereabouts was unkown but that he was Dr. Henry H. or Harry H. Smith.

I appreciate your assistance very much.

To answer your question I have put my Henry Homer on many sites with all his information but I will put it forth once again for your info. I do apologize that you couldn't find all his information.

Henry Homer Smith b. September? 10? 1871? in MS?
Married Willie Hester Lock(e) January 10, 1905 in Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas.
Had four children:
Wister Allen Smith b. 1905 Chatfield, Navarro County, Texas
Ethel Mae Smith(my mother) b. 1910 Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas
Henry Homer Smith b.1913 Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas
Wilson Bankston Smith b.1918 Sweeny, Brazoria County, Texas

Henry Homer Smith d.?Feb. 11? or March 11? 1920? Bell County, Texas?

He was suppose to have died of Tuberculosis.
In 1922 the youngest three children were placed in the Coriscana Orphange and this is the info on the application, although I am concerned that the person giving the info may not have been in a stable state of mind.

That's your Henry Homer Smith! We discussed this family under "Cardinal Manning Smith" in Dallas County.

Surnames: Smith, Ray, Tate
Hi: You will have to remind me what we discussed. I have talked to so many people. I don't think this is my Henry Homer Smith since he was not a doctor; unless of course, I am misunderstaning you HL2604.

I lately have been researching an 1880 census of Monroe County MS that has listed George and Adelaid Smith with sons Henry, Sydney, and Wren. Sydeny lists William Tate as nearest realtive on WW1 Draft Card. There is a marriage license of George W. Smith m. to Adelaid Ray. William Tate marriage license says he married Nancy Ray. I think these two must have been sisters since Sydney lists William Tate as a relative. I followed Sydney to Greenfield, Arkansas in 1930.

Thank you for all your assistance.
