I strongly suspect that Jeptha and Malinda's daughter Mary is the Mary Smith that married Joseph Reid and had:
Fannie Reid who married a Sanders
Grace Reid who married an Erwin
Sue Reid who married a Crenshaw
(Another sister and her husband were murdered and Fannie's twin died either at birth or soon afterwards)
Mary Reid ("Polly") who married Preston Farmer, however, I can't prove it. The age is ~ correct, but the main clue is Hester Smith, who, for some reason shows up twice in one census - one of those with Malinda and Jeptha, and the other with Mary and Joseph. In an earlier census Mary and Hester are both with Malinda and Jeptha. I would LOVE to know more info. Please feel free to contact me at or
Thanks a bundle. Peggy Farmer
