Would appreciate any help that anyone could offer. Tracing roots for:

Smith, Samuel R, m. Louisa ?

Smith, John Samuel, s.o. Samuel R Smith & Louisa, b. 10/16/1869, d. 01/11/1912, m. Cintha (or Cynthia) M. Oakes

Smith, Sidney Johnson, s.o. John Samuel Smith & Cintha M. Oakes, b. 10/16/1869, d. 01/11/1912, m. Lou Emma McCrickard

Smith, Robert Lee, s.o. Sidney Johnson Smith and Lou Emma McCrickard, b. 03/31/1911, d. 01/30/1973

and have hit a brick wall with Samuel R Smith and Louisa. There were several branches of Smiths in the Pittsylvania/ Franklin County area of Virginia; however, Cintha M. Oakes' grandmother was Ruth Smith, d.o. Lemuel Smith and Bethania Perkins, and I'm thinking that perhaps Samuel fits somewhere in this line of Smiths. Any help anyone could offer would be much appreciated! Thanks! Terry
