Smith Family Sunday: William C. Smith and Mary Brandon

This is the third family in Group Number 1 (best fits) of “candidate families,” who could be the families of my great-grandmother Susan Elizabeth Smith (m. 1st Bonner, m. 2nd Hiram Carroll Brinlee, Jr.).

If you are researching this family and found this blog through a search, please contact me - I would like to know more about this family and whether or not it is actually the family of my great-grandmother. Even if all you know are a few details, they might help. You can contact me at my e-mail address, which can be found by going to my profile page (there is a link to that page in the About Me section to the left).

Parents:

William C. Smith, b. ca 1829 Greene County, Tennessee, d. 1895
Mary Brandon, b. ca 1835 Greene County, Tennessee, d. 1890

Online trees give Mary Brandon’s parents as William Brandon and Rhoda Tunnel and William C. Smith’s parents as Cornelius Smith and Drucilla Craddock.

Children:

Liddie, b. 1858 in Tennessee
Amos, b. 3 Aug 1858 in Tennessee, d. 1922, m. Margaret Lenore Barkley
Drusilla, b. 1859 in Tennessee
Rhoda Isabella, b. 1861 in Tennessee, m. Andrew Johnson Kilday
Reubin, b. 1862 in Tennessee
Emily Jane, b. 1864 in Tennessee
Malinda, b. 1866-7 in Tennessee, d. 1934
Elizabeth, b. 23 Aug 1868 in Tennessee(if this is true, this may not be my Lizzie, whose birthday was always given as 4 April 1868).
Nancy, b. 1870 in Tennessee
John Cornelius, b. 1872 in Tennessee
Josephine, b. 1877 in Tennessee
David A., b. 1877 in Tennessee
