I did some checking for you at the library this morning and I believe I have some info for you. 1920 census, shows an Ora Smith age 33 born in MO, wife Dora M. age 26 born in Mo son Franklin age 2 and daughter Georgia F. age 7 months.
The 1900 census has an Alexander Smith b. Feb. 1859 age 41 married 18 yrs. wife Susan b. Oct. 1862 age 37 mother of 9 with 7 living, children Louis Dec. 1882 age 17, John b. July 1885, age 14, Ora b. Aug 1886 age 13, Elvira b. March 1888, age 12, Guy b. Sept. 1893 age 6, Bryon b. May 1896 age 4, and Doug, b. July 1898 age 1,
I also checked cemetery records, Ora A. Smith 1886-Jan 25 1966 is buried in the Russell Heights cemetery in Jackson MO in section C.
Alexander Smith 5 Jan 1859 - 22 Oct 1944, is buried in thhe McKendree Cemetery, McKendree is the name of a Methodist church in Jackson, It has quite a history.
This should be plenty to get you started!
