Still attempting to confirm the Parents of 3 members of the Smiley family who lived in Indianapolis, Indiana, all 3 were born in ?, County ?, Ireland. Per family lore either Co. Donegal or Co. Mayo. Michael Smiley born ca 1824-1839 in ?, Ireland, died 25 April 1899 Indianapolis, Indiana, buried Holy Cross Cemetery, Indianapolis. He supposedly arrived at the Port of New Orleans, and served in the Confederate Army as a Private in Co.A, 17th Louisiana Regiment, captured at Vicksburg, held as POW in St. Louis & later Camp Morton, Indianapolis, released in Indianapolis, Indiana; his sister Anna Smiley born ca 1835-1837 ?, Ireland, died ?, Did she poss. marry Michael Hannan 22 June 1874 in Marion County, Indiana? Or did she marry a Backus/Bachus? in 1870 Anna Smiley listed twice in Indianapolis census with sister Mary Smiley Adams and family; sister Mary Smiley Adams born ca 15 May 1832-1840 in ?, Ireland, Mary died 15 Dec. 1917 Chicago, Illinois. Mary's parents listed on her death cert. in Chicago are listed as Anthony Smiley and Mary Kirby both born Ireland, but unknown if this is correct as no trace of them has been found in Ireland and informant on death cert. was Sr. Cyprienne, a nun at the Home for the Aged where Mary Smiley Adams died. Any help or ideas appreciated. Thanks, Mary email@example.com
