        No. You've already send me some about that. I'm looking for the parents of Eli's father, James Smith, 1789-1846, who was also in the Alabama legislature. A representative.

        James' and Lovy's tombstone, reads thus:
       
                    " In Memory of James Smith, consort of Lovy Province. Borth Feb. 17th, 1789, in Virginia, died Aug. 21st. 1846. The dec. served two terms in the Alabama Legislature. "
       
         It also states that he was a kind man, and so forth. As for Lovy's, or Lovey's parents, it is pretty clear, that they were John Province and Love Barnard. We are not certain of John Province's parents, but Love Barnard's are quite certain; Timothy Barnard and Love Swain, both from Nantucket. As Quakers, they later moved into North Carolina, and Virginia. Love Barnard, their daughter, was dismissed from the Quakers, because she married outside of them. Timothy's and Love Swain's ancestors are all well recorded in the Nantucket records, and it is know, from old sources, that they did spend their last days in Alabama.
       
           As for James Smith, there are so many in Jackson county,  that I am baffled. He does appear close to a Jesse Smith, and also close to John McCutchen, on the census sheets. John McCutchen's dauther, Martha Jane McCutchen, later would marry James Smith's son Eli. Lovy Smith did outlive her husband, as she is on the 1850 census. I hope that some of this helps.

      My 3rd great grandparents were James Smith and Lovy Province; both lived and died in Jackson county. Lovy's parents are pretty certain, but not the parents of James Smith. If anyone has any ideas as to who his parents or siblings might be, or wants more information from that which I have, please let me know.

      Thank you;
      John Cook
