FiddleDee - Can You Help?
- We're looking for help, too, with our Smith family ancestry and you
know how that lineage can be!
We sent a note along the other day re: Abner J. Smith b.1852 d.1926
of Pitt Co.; sp. #1 - Elizabeth Adams (not Adadms)m. 1874, sp. #2 Ann
Cannon m. 1882 all of Pitt Co.
Ann and Abner's children were: Wm or James Henry b. 1881 before Ann
and Abner's marriage date (Henry could have been a child of Elizabeth
Adams and Abner), Wm Calvin, Wm Augustus, Nancy and Lonie (could be a
nickname for Louise or Louisa) and possibly a Martha. A death
certificate noted Henry Smith and Lucinda as Abner's parents. But all
we have been able to research or track so far is Henry Bryant Smith
and Celia Lucinda Tucker of Pitt Co during that history period of our
family. Our research on Ann Cannon only bore Dollie Cannon as Ann's
mother; again taken from a vital record we obtained.
Interestingly, our Grandfather, Wm Augustus, stated long ago that
Abner's parents had 13 children but census records up to 1850 for
Pitt Co. show Henry Bryant and Lucinda with 12 children. We suspect
Abner may have been their 13th child as Lucinda would have been 36
yrs old at Abner's birth. Any info on the 1860 Census for Pitt Co.
would be extremely helpful as it should tie him to a specific family
between 1852 and 1860.
We are desperately trying to connect Abner and the rest of our family
to his real parents as we are planning a family reunion in NC early
Thank you for any assistance.
