I am searching for information on WILLIAM ROBERT SMITH. He was born in 1852. His parents were WILLIAM and EMILY SMITH. I believe that he is the WILLIAM R. SMITH who is brother to my great grandmother NANCY J. SMITH. My William was born in May 4,1852 and died (or at least he is buried)November 1, 1892, in Edgewood, VanZandt County, Texas. His sister, Nancy, was my great granmother. She named my grandmother WILLIAM EMILY, and I have always wondered if she named my grandmother after her father, William, and her mother, Emily. This leads me to believe that the William Robert Smith born in Polk County was my Nancy's brother. Supposedly the William Robert Smith from Polk County was born in Colita or Livingston.

My William R. Smith had siblings:
MARY ANN--12/12/1844
THOMAS--6/20/1847
NANCY J.--3/12/1849-2/22/1917
HENRY JACKSON--12/24/1849
SARAH E.--3/29/1856-11/1/1892 (same death date as William R.)
ELLEN MALINDA--8/16/1859

Any help gratefully accepted.
