In Reply to: Josie Smitherman ( Alabama) by Kitty Lockhart of 326

Thomas Decatur Smitherman b. 1 Aug. 1870 Baker Co., Al. married Anna J Gibson on 20 Feb. 1890 in Chilton Co., Al. They had the following children: infant b/d bef. 1900, Lizzie M "Susie" b. Jan. 1890, Joseph b. June 1891 m. Senie ?, Dove b. Feb. 1893, Ethel b. 1895, Augie B. b. 6 Aug. 1897, MALCUM b. 1900 Chilton Co., AL., Jessie (female - twin) b. 1903, Essie b. 1903 (twin), Hubbard b. 1905, Lessie b. 1907, Bessie b. 1909, and Hurshell b. 1911.

Thomas Decatur Smitherman was the son of Joseph (who you have as Josie) Smitherman and his first wife Mary ? (poss. Ward). Joseph married second Missouri Lewis (widow of Benjamin Lewis)

Joseph Smitherman and Mary had the following children (and there could possibly more children that I don't have):E L Smitherman b. 1858 Bibb Co., Al., J D Smitherman b. 1862 Bibb Co., AL., Sanford M b. 1868 Bibb Co., AL., Thomas Decatur b. 1 August 1878 Chilton Co., Al., d. 8 December 1926 and is buried at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church #1 Cem., Chilton Co., Al., Alex Smitherman b. 1874 Chilton Co., Al., married Ever Ward, and Lela R Smitherman b. 1878 Chilton Co., AL..

JOSEPH (or Josie) was born 30 May 1839 in Bibb Co., Al. He was the son of JESSE SMITHERMAN (b. 25 December 1808,d. 17 Nov. 1888 Bibb Co., AL. buried at the Jesse Smitherman Family Cemetery in Bibb Co., Al.)and Dorothy "Polly" Garner. JESSE & POLLY had the following children: Thomas, Andrew, Nancy, Sarah, James William, Jesse (male, listed in one document as someone who had fits), Joseph, Dolly or Polly, John, and Martha. JESSE SMITHERMAN b. 1808 married second HARRITETT AMANDA DAVENPORT SCOTT (widow of James Scott) and to them were born the following children: Elizabeth, Margaret, and Ada Obratine (by the way she has a daughter who is still living. Ada married 3 times and her second husband was my Great Grandfathers brother J Luther Smitherman).

I sincerly hope that this will help you. The above is why I asked for dates. There are a lot of Smitherman's with the same names and many are born within the same time period. If you need any more give me a call, I have a LOT of information on this family. By the I descend from Jesse 1808's brother Samuel b. 1789 NC if that helps.
