Try Arkansas.

Columbus J. Smith had a son named Ambrose, right?

An Ambrose Smith married Nancy Jane Duke. They had a son named Columbus, as you will see below. It seems likely that Ambrose would name a son after his father.

Ambrose and Nancy J. were first in Izard Co., AR. and then apparently in Yell Co., AR, when Ambrose died in the late 1890s. Nancy's daughter Emma was eventually married to my grandmother's brother, John W. Anderson in Yell County. John and Emma Anderson are buried in the Tyro Cemetery of Lincoln Co., AR.

1880 Census of Izard County, Ark.

DUKE John A -- age 55, a Carpenter, born in TN. Father born in NC. Mother born in TN
Vicy C -- age 44, wife, Keeping House, born in TN. Parents born in TN TN
Sarah age 12, a daughter, born in IL. TN TN
Mary -- age 6, a daughter, born in AR. TN TN
Wiley -- age 5, a son, born in AR/ TN TN

SMITH Ambrose, age 21, a Farmer, born in MO. Father born in MO. Mother also born in MO
Nancy J -- age 19 wife Keeping House AR TN TN
Edward -- age 1 son, born in AR. Father born in MO. Mother born in AR

Note: Ambrose and Nancy Smith were living in the household next to the J. A. Duke family -- her folks.
