I just ran across the Ailstock web-site and saw the gravesite listings for Tunnel Hill Cemetery. Several years back, my late great-uncle escorted me to this cemetery to see the gravestones of some of our ancestors. I am descended from W.T. Layton, son of Sidney (Ailstock) Smith. She was buried in that cemetery. Does anyone have more
information on her, like her birth information and her parents details?

She is listed as having died on 10/30, 1882.

According to a will in Bath County, Va., she married James H. Smith and had two children by that marriage, son John Henry and daughter Ira M. It also lists her two other children W. T. Layton and Nancy J. (Layton) Franklin.

William Thomas Layton's death certificate lists Sidney Ailstock and John Layton
as his parents but I know nothing more about them.
