Hi all- I am looking for the parents of Alice Augusta SMYTH or SMITH. She was born about 1887, probably in Texas, but maybe Oklahoma. Family history says that she was at least part Native American. Choctaw, Cherokee, or both. She had at least two sisters, Millie (pronounced MY-lee), and Mollie. Millie married a man named PIKE. Mollie was supposed to have traveled with a circus, and was died in a tornado in or near Ft Worth. Alice also may have had a brother, Henry. She married in her teens, to Henry Melvin ALEXANDER. They had a total of nine children. Haskell, Bessie, Anne, Woodro, Bishop William (Billy), Bulb, Buelah, Minnie Murrell, and Henry Melvin, Jr. The first four all died as children, before 1920. If this sounds even vaguely familiar to anyone, I would appreciate any information you might have.
