I am looking for information on Cornelius V. Smith and Mel Sena Ray. They were married October 26, 1865 in Johnson Co. Any information on this couple's descendents would be appreciated. She was the niece of my gggrandfather. Her parents were Asenath DOTY and Burgess RAY. Asenath died either in childbirth or shortly there after. Burgess RAY moved to Bartholomew Co, leaving his daughter behind. Mel Sena (shown as all one word on the 1850 census) was raised by her grandparents, John and Elizabeth "Sally" DOTY. Please email me at
