SMITH FAMILY FROM MS TO PT. COUPEE PARISH LA BY 1850
Posted by: Joanne Truman (ID *****2077) Date: December 09, 2004 at 11:19:54

Greetings
In searching for the parents / siblings of my gg gf Dennis W. Smith who md. Elizabeth Maxwell in Avoyelleys Parish in 1859, I finally found the following listing on page 37 of the 1850 Pointe Coupee Parish Census:

Amelia Smith 46 Planter, $4,000 b. GA
Andrew Smith 20 Overseer b. MS
Alexander Smith 16 none b. MS
Lafayette Smith 11 none b. MS
Dennis Smith 22 b. Labor b. MS

His age is close enough and birth place correct, and I believe that he was the son of Amelia's husband and a first wife.

Dennis and Elizabeth had two daus: Mary Alice md to Alcie Laborde (my line) and Alma who was md. to Eugene Bringol. Dennis died before 1865 because that's when Elizabeth md. Joshua Snoddy and the family was living in Rapides Parish at the 1870 census. (Both girls were listed as Snoddy's instead of Smiths in 1870)

Does anyone have information about this family?? Who was Amelia's husband??
Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Joanne
