Smith spoons, most of which dealt the family of Samuel H. Smith (1795-1853) and Frances (Martin) Smith, his wife (1799-1862) of Wake Co., N. C. and Dallas Co., Ark. Theses sisters lived in Fordyce, Arkansas; both died soon after 1980. Anyone who knows what became of this collection, please let Jonathan Smith, P. O. Box 10356, Jackson, TN 38308 know.
