Frakers and Smiths and Browns

I believe we talked earlier about the connection between the Smiths, Browns, and Frakers. I have discovered the connection for the Smiths and Frakers. My ggg-grandfather was Robert Smith of Knox Co. Robert's wife was named Mary. Yesterday I found the Fraker file you have on your site which lists Mary Fraker to Robert Smith with a marriage date of 1790. Not only does the date match; the Fraker line answers where my gg-grandfather got his name Adam, and why Adam named of his sons George FRAKER Smith and ELBERT Sevier Smith (Elbert was my g-grandfather).

I have narrowed down the area of the farms of Robert Smith, William Brown, Josiah Brown and Thomas Hall too. I hope to begin graphing them on a map after the first of the year.
