      Hello , I have been trying to find solid information on my grandmother's grandfather on her mothers side for a yr now. His name was Frederick Alexander Smiley b. about 1834 we believe in Nelson Virgina d: 2 jan 1899 Pike co. kentucky.
      We know he married Rhoda Ann Bishop , we know he was a civil war soldier. It's been said there was a family bible where he wrote that his grandparents were James Smiley and Marth Kiturah Watson Smily of Virginia. But nothing listing who his parents were.
      It's as if he just appeared.
      We checked all of the census's for who we believe are his parents
      James Watkins Smiley and Jane T. Peters ....yet nothing shows him listed as a child.
      He had one brother listed that would have been the appropriate age fram as F. A. Smiley ~~ but we checked it and found it was not the same person.

      We also know one of his brothers who was in the civil war also....had used a alias.
      Still we can find nothing on Frederick prior to his marraige~~ any help would be greatly appreciated~~
