GRANDERSON "Grant" Smitherman - Alabama

I am looking for anyone with information on Granderson "Grant" Smitherman b. ca. 1820's TN. who married BODECIA "Deacy" ANN DAVIS (dau. of Joseph Davis and MARGARET SMITHERMAN)b. 1836 in Bibb Co., Al. Granderson and Bodecia married 7 July 1853 in Bibb Co., Al. and never showed up on a census record together that I have found. Granderson never appeard on any census record that I have found.

From family information we have determined that Granderson and Bodecia had the following children: Jasper, David b. 21 Aug. 1856 Bibb Co., Al., Rev. Sutton Smitherman b. 15 May 1858 Bibb Co., Al. Jackson Smitherman, Emma Smitherman b. 1 May 1868 Al.
married JASPER NEWTON CHILDRESS (he was my Great Grandfather Childress's brother. Emma was my Great Grandfather Smitherman's first cousin.), and Decatur C Smitherman b. 19 October 1872.

From what we know Granderson and Bodecia had died when Emma was in her teens and she had gone to stay with her brother Jasper whose wife had died to help him with his children. We don't know the names of these children. She did mention that she had a brother who was Rev. Sutton Smitherman. From census records we have added the additional brothers and sisters bacause they were listed in the household of know brothers and the relationship was listed as that of sibling.

Would appreciate any information that you can add to this family.
