Thank you for the picture of JH Smith's tomb stone. My Aaron Smith settled in Muhlenberg County KY with brother Jesse Smith Sr. going to Henderson-Union counties. JH Smith (Jesse Harvey Smith) was the s/o Hiram Hornbuckle Smith & Artemissia Kuykendall, as you have noted. Hiram Hornbuckel was the s/o of the Jesse Smith Sr. and unknown wife. Jesse Smith Sr. was the s/o Peter Smith who died in Caswell County NC c. 1797. I don't think my Smiths were related to your Reddick Smith because, to my knowledge, there were no TN connections. I'd be happy to share data on my line with anyone who might be interested. Again, thanks. .....Dorann O'Neal Lam

Thank you for this information on the family of Jesse H. Smith.

My Reddick Smith's family came from Wythe County, VA to southern Illinois.
