This may be your Fredonia Smith. 1880 census Montgomery Co, TN:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

William SMITH Self M Male W 59 TN Farming TN TN
Elizabeth SMITH Wife M Female W 54 TN Keeping House TN TN
Asaminta SMITH Dau S Female W 28 TN At Home TN TN
Fredonia SMITH Dau S Female W 22 TN At Home TN TN
Veinna SMITH Dau S Female W 13 TN TN TN
Leander SMITH Son Male W 17 TN Farming TN TN
Beldora SMITH Dau S Female W 20 TN At Home TN TN

You might check out land and probate records for William, see if Fredonia shows up as an heir, hopefully after she marries as that would be your proof of the tie to this Smith family.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
