  • Notes 
    • Research of Linda Smith Cheek--This fellow did not know much about his family as in different census he had different info. Same man

      On his death certificate it says he was born in Cherokee GA
      says father Wm T.Smith
      mother Sarah Garrett b. 1848 living 1900 TX

      married Minnie L.

      William T. Smith was not married to a Samantha Garrett Smith 1845-1920. Samantha Garrett was the mother in law of BB Smith son of Wm and Montery Boswell Smith. BB married Minnie Lee Smith d/o Samantha Garrett Smith. I have no idea who Minnie Lee Smiths father was? Samantha Garrett Smith lived with her grandtr Lillian Crawford in TX. Wm T. Smtih 1st wife was Louisa Jane Cox who died at childbirth.
