    Notes 
    • During the Civil War, Andrew enlisted in Company A, 13th Kentucky Cavalry (CSA). In 1863 he was captured by Union soldiers while on leave at his parents' home at the mouth of Steer Fork Creek (Missionary Ridge, near McKee, in Jackson County, Kentucky). Imprisoned as a POW in the Union prison at Camp Douglas, near Chicago, IL, Private Smith died there of smallpox in 1864. Presumably, prisoner corpses were initially buried in mass graves; some were later reinterred.

      Andrew's widow, Sarah, married to another Confederate veteran, Elihu Kiser Skeens, on 22 Dec 1868 in Letcher County, Kentucky. Presumably, their two children were adopted by stepfather Elihu, as they appear with the Skeens surname in records of the 1880 census and beyond.
