I need help on the families of David and Elizabeth Irene Murphy Skaggs and John and Martha "Pasty" Matthews Smith. These two families lived in Benton Co., AR. 1870 Census. Daivd Skaggs died in Benton Co., AR and is buried in the Maysfield Cemetery. By Oct 1872 the William Julius Skaggs family is living in Johnson Co., TX moving with William P. T. Smith and family to Comanche Co., TX by 1880 Census. John and Martha "Pasty Matthews Smith and their other children are livng in Johnson Co., TX by the 1880 Census and the children start marrying there. I have not found where John and Martha died or buried. Johnson Co or Comanche Co., TX. By the 1900 census most of the Smith children and their families are living in Comanche Co., TX and going to the Rock Bluff Baptist Church. William Julius Skaggs and William P. T. Smith and their wives are charter members of this church and later William Julius Skaggs and his two sons Frank and Willie go on to make Baptist Ministers.

In the Rea Cemetery in Johnson Co., TX is buried J. P. Skaggs son of William Julius and Frances Smith Skaggs and J. W. Smith son of David T. and Lorenda Jane Hutson Smith

David and Elizabeth Irene Murphy Skaggs children:
Solomon Skaggs married Martha unknown
( she could possible be a child of Asa Pinnell), both must of died in Maries Co., MO they are on the 1860 census for Maries Co., Mo. and then they never show up again. The two children Mary and Marion are living with David and Elizabeth Skaggs in the 1870 census Benton Co., AR. Later these two children show up in Dublin, Erath Co., TX

John and Martha "Pasty" Matthews Smith children:
Frances Jane "Fanny" Smith married William Julius Skaggs
William P. T. Smith married Mary E. Clark.(this borther and sister married the same day)
David Smith married Lonnida "Ren" Hutson
Levi Pinkey Clementine Smith married Lenora "Tiny" O'Harrow
James Henry Smith married Ida Viola O'Harrow
Sarah Ann Smith married Robert Lemuel Chambless
John Lee A. Smith married Mollie L. Bennett
Mary Ellen Smith married Enoch Graham Montgomery
Martha Elviah "Mattie" Smith married George Burton Montgomery. I have been old that John and Martha Smith both died when Mattie was about 12 years old. This would have been around 1882-1884. She was raised by her older bothers and sisters. Mattie younger daughter Leo is still alive and is 100 years old. She helped me on the Smith family so much.

If you are working on any of these families please contact me. I have large files on them and will share. Wanda Sparkman
