Looking for information on Andrew J. (A.J. I believe the J. may be for Jackson but not positive. May have also gone by Andy) Smith born abt 1815 most likely in Kentucky but possibly in Illinois. Marriages: 1st to Celiann Unknown born abt 1830 in TN with child Henry age 11 in Jefferson Township, Carroll County, AR in 1860 Census. 2nd to Hepstbeth Jane Crain abt 1868/70 time frame with two children born Thomas Andrew in Jun 1870 and Ruthie M. (Census shows W. as middle initial) about 1872-73 in Jefferson Township, Boone County, AR., according to 1880 census. (Boone County was formed from four different counties in Nov 1869). AJís father was born in Virginia and Mother in North Carolina according to Census records. I have Census records from 1860-1900 and know from them he was in Carroll/ Boone County, Arkansas until around 1900-1905. Then he disappears. The family ( Thomas and wife with children, mother Jane and sister Ruthie) moves to Bryan County, I.T. around 1905 / 1906 but AJ is not with them, nor have I found a death record on him in Arkansas or Oklahoma. 1910 census from Bryan County, Oklahoma and birth records from some of Thomasís children show they were in I.T. / Oklahoma around that time period. The problem I am having is finding out where AJ was born and who his parents were. Many clues but nothing firm enough to make any connections. I would appreciate any help in trying to track down AJ and his parents, its been a brickwall for many years. Thanks for your time and help.
