HI there Darnell...

I am writing in the hope that you found out more about Ella Lamb and Benjamin Smith. The dates I have came from my father's baby book, they include:

Thomas Benjamin Smith
DOB: January 31, 1853
Place: Jackson , Mississippi

Married: December 21, 1876
Place: Clay, Mississippi

Ella Lamb(Smith)
DOB: June 21, 1851 (1855?)
Place: Florence, Mississippi

I would imagine they lived in Texas or Oklahoma at some point becuase my Great Grandfather (Alman Hester Smith), was their child and was born in Ardmore, Oklahoma.

Additionally, there was a note in the baby book that says that Ella Lamb had 21 different names. In memory, I was told that Ella Lamb had 21 different INDIAN names.

Can you verify/dispute any of this information?

I am anxious to hear from you. Thanks so much!!
