My great-great-grandmother was Mary m WHITLOCK TROGDON born in GRAINGER COUNTY, TN. She married Aaron Faslo TROGDON also born in GRAINGER Co. They removed to OHIO COUNTY, KY along with other family members after the Civil War including Aaron's parents, Solomon and Elizabeth (MINCY) TROGDON. They are buried there as well as Aaron.
Later Mary WHITLOCK TROGDON removed with some of her children to MARIES COUNTY, MO around the Dry Creek Township where she may be buried, I know her son Samuel Wilford TROGDON is and his sister, Lavina (TROGDON) SPURLING was the informant on his death certificate when he died about 1925.
I am supposing Mary WHITLOCK TROGDON died about 1905, because three of her chilldren moved to the City of ST. LOUIS as they are in the city directory. The three that moved to ST. LOUIS were, WILLIAM BIRD TROGDON, PLEASANT G. TROGDON and Mary TROGDON FARRIS.
Their sister, my great-grandmother, Julie Elton TROGDON GRAY married David Allan GRAY in OHIO COUNTY, KY and removed to PHELPS COUNTY, MO (MARIES COUNTY, MO).
In the Goodspeed book of 1889, there are two SMITH men, James L. and Joseph. In James L. SMITH biography it listed his parents as Samuel SMITH and Elizabeth DYER, that he was a grandson of Thomas SMITH of VIRGINIA.
According to the information that I have James WHITLOCK the husband of Sarah SMITH was the administator of the estate of Thomas SMITH.
Therefore, my great-grat-grandmother, Mary WHITLOCK TROGDON lived pretty close to her cousins James L. and Joseph in 1870's and 1880's. Samuel SMITH died September 21, 1881 according to his gravemarker in Carney Dyer Cemetery, Miller Township, PHELPS COUNTY, MO. about two miles away from where my great-grandmother, Julia TROGDON GRAY is buried in the Macedonia Cemetery, also in PHELPS COUNTY, MO.
Some how a family by the name ATKINSON is related either through the SMITHS, GRAYS, WHITLOCKS or TROGDONS.
I would like to especially try to locate any SMITH family that might have Samuel's Bible or his father's Bible where it would give more information. Please understand I do not want the Bible but a copy of any information which it might have.
