I'm looking for information on the family of Amanda Smith, born about 1878, married to Robert McK. Smith and listed in the 1910 and 1920 Lane County, Oregon, censuses. I do not know her maiden name, but she is listed as born in Texas, with a father born in Louisiana and a mother born in Texas. I think she may have been related to my grandmother, Maude May Scott, who lived in Glenada, Oregon, for a short time, sometime between 1904 and 1909 and worked at the Glenada Hotel. I have a postcard written to Maude by Amanda's teen son (or stepson), Crawford Smith, in 1911, after Maude returned to Texas. As Maude grew up in the small town of Huffman, Texas, where many people came to Texas from Louisiana about 1840, I think there may be a family connection with Amanda.
