SMITH--I am working on very little information. My grandmother Minnie SMITH was married in St Francis Co Arkansas April 3 1881. Her wedding certificate shows that she was born May 1863 in Alabama. The 1900 census shows that her father was born in Alabama and her mother in Ga. That is all the firm data that I have to go on, the rest is family story that I have not been able to verify. According to my father, his mother Minnie was brought up on a river boat that her father owned and operated on the St Francis River in Akansas (this is probably why I can find no census records either in 1870 or 1880, they were probably never counted due to their gypsy lifestyle)Capt SMITH was supposedly a full blood Cherokee from Alabama. His wife was white from Ga. At the time of the civil war their river boat was sunk by the yankees so Capt took his wife back to family home in Alabama while he joined Confederate Army. Minnie was born in her grandparents home. I have no idea where that was and the worse part is that I have no record of given names of her parents. She died in Dallas TX 6 months before Texas started keeping death records. What I'm hoping for is some indication of a Cherokee family named SMITH that was in Alabama at least from about 1830-1870 and find out which county to look for birth records of Minnie or for someone that may know something of my riverboat capt.
