Looking for the Smith and Russell families
Posted by: Tammy Jones (ID *****8200) Date: March 29, 2011 at 23:01:32

My James Smith is listed on the 1850 Mississippi County Census with wife Locky and 6 SMITH children and 2 RUSSELL children:

1850 Arkansas, Mississippi Co., 57/57
SMITH, Jas, 45 M Farmer KY
SMITH, Locky, 35 F TN
SMITH, Mary, 18 F TN
SMITH, James J/I 16 M TN
SMITH, Elizabeth, 14 F TN
RUSSELL, Van Buren 17 M AL
RUSSELL, Elizabeth E., 11 F AL
SMITH, George W. 11 M AL
SMITH, Francis M., 7 M AR
SMITH, Sarah L., 1 F AR

It looks like from this census that both James and Locky were married before.
Looks like Mary, James, Elizabeth and George were Jamesís children from his first marriage,
And Locky was married to a Russell and her children are Van Buren and Elizabeth Russell.

Itís also possible that the Russell children are not Lockyís and she is in fact the mother of all the Smith children.

In 1860 this family has moved to Madison County:

1860 Arkansas, Madison Co., Bowen Twp., PO War Eagle,
SMITH, Jas 56 M KY
SMITH, Locky 46 F TN
SMITH, George W. 22 m TN
SMITH, Frances M. 17 m AR
SMITH, Sarah L 12 F AR
SMITH, Deel? 9 F AR
SMITH, Martha J. 7 F AR

James Smith died in 1862. I would assume that he is buried in Madison County. Need to know where?
Locky (and youngest dau. Mary) is living with her daughter Sarah Keck on the 1870 census Arkansas, Madison Co., Valley Twp.,
(The Keck family later moved to Logan County) I donít know when or where Locky Smith is buried. Likely Madison County.

I have information on :
George Washington Smith married Elizabeth Creech
Sariah Lucinda Smith, she married Charles Christopher Keck (they are my 2nd great-grandparents)
Cordelia 'Deila' Smith married Lewis A. McAdoo. (my 2nd great-grandUncle)

What happened to Mary, James, Elizabeth, Frances, Martha and the 2 Russell children?
