|Summer at Shinnecock Hills by William Merritt Chase, 1891.|
I am taking a break from writing about AncestryDNA connections on my Mom's Mexican side of the tree to wait on the arrival of some research. I think one connection is to the family of Ignacio Terrazas and Brigida Herrera. In the meantime, there is a line on my Dad's side of the tree that I have not spent much time writing about here. For the next few days I will follow the Smith family of my 2nd-great-grandmother, Anna Smith Lamon.
I previously posted a copy of the marriage record for Anna Luiza Smith and Uriah Lamon back in August 2013. They were married in Gibson County, Indiana on 9 November 1884. The same post included a copy of the marriage record for Anna's parents, Jesse A. Smith and Rebecca Muck. Jesse and Rebecca were married in Gibson County on 27 May 1856.
According to Jesse's death certificate, he passed away on 1 July 1920 in Fort Branch, Gibson County. This document lists his birth date as 7 February 1832 and the name of his father, Isaac Smith.
The lands of Jesse A. Smith and his father Isaac Smith Sr. appear in the Gibson County land ownership map from 1881 in Sections 29 and 32, Johnson Township.
