Judy, my grandfather was a child of Gabriella "Della"... sister to Robert "Jasper". Della's birth date on tombstone is March 16, 1864. John Smitherman and Paralee Latham marriage registration is dated May 17, 1866. Has any stories been passed down in your family to indicated "Della's parentage? We have just realized the discrepancy in the last year or so. At which time we came across my grandfathers death certificate, my grandmother had indicated that granddaddy's mother's maiden name was "Latham" which implies she was born out of wedlock! Granddaddy also had his mother listed as "Latham" on his SS Application and their marriage license.

As for the information you are requesting, I believe I can help get you going in the right direction. I go back an additional four generations. Contact me through my e-mail address and I get that to you.
