  • Notes 
    • Here is a timeline for Gabriel Smith:
      1793: Born in North Carolina

      1814: Enlisted in Captain James Gault, 2nd Regiment of West Tennessee Militia, War of 1812

      1815: Williamson County, TN married Elizabeth Snellgrove

      1816: Williamson County TN witness to Benjamin Snellgrove marriage

      1824-1825: Independence County ARK

      1825: "Old" Miller County Arkansas, modern day Oklahoma. Listed on delinquent tax list along with Benjamin Snellgrove, and Jacomiah Snellgrove.

      1826-1831: Mexican Texas in modern Red River County or modern Oklahoma.

      1830: Claim filed at land office for land donation, based on Act of 1829, which issued a certificate for 320 acres for white families living on choctaw land, who moved east of the Arkansas western boundary. This claim was filed on the same day as Benjamin Snellgrove.

      1831-1835: Crawford County Arkansas

      1836 (Abt): Married Jane LNU

      1840: Scott County Arkansas (Incorrectly transcribed/indexed as being in Searcy County Arkansas). Age of wife matches age of Jane found in 1850 census. Age gap between children indicate death of Elizabeth Snellgrove to be about 1831.

      1850: Barry County Missouri

      1857: Military Land Warrant issued located in Scott County

      1860: Entire family missing from Federal Census

      Jane remarried in Benton County Missouri in 1861 and most likely died shortly after. This is based on the fact that her husband Aquilla Nail moved to Oregon and died in 1869.

      Son Enoch enlisted in civil war at age 15 in Fayetteville, ARK in 1863. Daughter America Smith married Elias Brannick in Washington County ARK in 1863, her sister Lucinda (Kyser) witnessed. Enoch Smith married Emma Ripley in 1869 in Benton County, Missouri.

      Therefore date of death for Gabriel Smith is most likely before 1860. And the date of death for Jane is most likely about 1863.

      Most significant research challenges: Gabriel lived in Arkansas in 1820, no census for Arkansas Territory for that year exists. Lived in Old Miller County Arkansas in 1825, the courthouse was burned by the citizens. Lived on the border of Texas and Oklahoma 1825-1831, no official records exist for this period in this region. Lived in Crawford County Arkansas 1831-1836, this courthouse burned, only tax rolls for this period exist. Lived in Scott County Arkansas, this courthouse burned in 1882, no records exist prior. Lived in Barry County Missouri, courthouse fire in 1861, destroyed most records.

      Most Wanted Documents:
      1. Application/claim filed in Arkansas Land office on 19 Apr 1830, for land donation.
      2. Application/claim filed in Arkansas Land office prior to 1856, for war of 1812 service claim.
      3. Documents pertaining to enlistment and discharge in War of 1812, only index card available online.
