I'm looking for information on Margaret "Maggie" B Smith who married John Wesley or William Jarman. John's sister Lula Jarman married Margaret's brother John R Smith. John R and Margaret B possibly had a sister named Annie Smith who is shown living with John W and Margaret Jarman in 1900 in Lauderdale MS. My Annie Smith married Robert Sidney Vance and had a daughter named Ruby Hazel Vance b. 1910; Ruby married AJ Scruggs. Ruby and AJ are my Grandparents. My family story goes that Annie died when Ruby was very young, possibly 3 yrs old. Ruby was raised by an Aunt. We are not sure which side of the family the Aunt was from or any other information on that Aunt. We do know that Robert Sidney Vance married a lady named Octavia when Ruby was approx 4 yrs old, and he was with Octavia in Sept 1918 in Memphis TN. We don't know if Ruby was with them or not, and we don't know if Octavia was Ruby's Aunt. Robert and Octavia were back in Lauderdale MS living close to Ruby and AJ in 1930.
Can anybody help connect our elusive Annie? It's possible that some one from Lula (Jarman)and John R. Smith's or Margaret (Smith) Jarman's line could shed some light. Also, it's possible that Lula's sister Minnie married another Smith brother or cousin.
