SMITH/RODGERS/DALTON

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON A LEVON H. SMITH AND WIFE LUCINDA SMITH, CHILDREN...ANDREW J., HELLENA A, JAMES W.SMITH. THIS FAMILY IS SHOWN IN THE 1880 SHARP COUNTY CENSUS, CAVE CITY. IAM TRYING TO FIND OUT IF THIS PARTICULAR FAMILY MAY BE MY MISSING LINK IN MY FAMILY RESEARCH.
MY GG GRANDMOTHER WAS NAMED LENA SMITH BN 1874 IN AR. HER FATHER ACCORDING TO HER DEATH CERTIFICATE WAS A HARRISON SMITH AND MOTHER WAS LUCINDA. LENA'S FATHER WAS FROM TN, HER MOTHER FROM MS. LENA'S MOTHER IS OF CHEROKEE DESCENT. HAVE PHOTO OF HER, OLD CHARCOAL.
THIS FAMILY HAS ALL THE CORRECT INFORMATION THAT MATCHES THE INFORMATION I ALREADY HAD.
LENAS BROTHER JAMES WAS SUPPOSE TO HAVE BEEN ADOPTED BY A DALTON FAMILY AT SOME POINT, APPARENTLY THE CHILDREN WERE ORPHANED. REASON UNKNOWN.
LENA MARRIED IN 1891 TO PLEAS MARSHALL RODGERS IN MONROE COUNTY AR. LENA WAS 18, PLEAS WAS 33.
PLEAS CAME FROM GRUNDY COUNTY TN. HE WAS THE SON OF TERRILL AND FRANCES RODGERS.
I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS FAMILY MOVED FROM SHARP COUNTY OR WHAT EXACTLY, I JUST KNOW I CAN'T PULL THEM UP ANYWHERE AFTER 1880.
IF ANYONE OUT THERE CAN SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS SUBJECT, I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.
I ALSO KNOW THAT LUCINDA'S FATHER WAS SUPPOSE TO HAVE BEEN A CHEROKEE CHIEF. THE DEATH CERTIFICATE SHOWS LUCINDA'S MAIDEN NAME BUT THE FIRST 2 LETTERS IN THE NAME ARE CAPITALIZED AND UNCLEAR, THE LAST 4 LETTERS SPELL ROCK.
I KNOW THAT BEFORE PLEAS GOT TO MONROE COUNTY, HE HAD BEEN IN EAST ST. LOUIS, THEN MIGRATED SOUTH.
PLEAS AND LENA ARE BOTH BURIED AT WHITE CHURCH CEMETERY IN MONROE COUNTY AR.
THANKS AGAIN,
TERRI
