Subject: [SMITH] King's Mountain (Arkansas) Smith family?
Date: Wed, 17 Apr 2002 22:20:31 -0500
I'm looking at the online 1870 Marion County, Alabama census and your
mention of a "King's Mountain" is interesting. Is this mountain in Arkansas
or Mississippi? In 1870 there were a great many families by the last name
"KING" in Marion County, Alabama.
What KING families do you find in relation to this King's Mountain?
Also, I'd like a lookup in the Tuscaloosa County, Alabama censuses of
1870 for John W. Smith and wife Lucetta/Lucitta with sons Jonas, James,
William and Rebecca in household.
I suspect a connection to John Smith and Rebecca Pennington. Rebecca's
father Able Pennington, died in Tuscaloosa County, SE of Marion, and in fact
bordered Marion before Lamar was established.
