Searching A.J. Smith, who wed Mary Blankenship in Blount Co. Tn. in 1858. They are believed to have moved on to Kingsport, Tn and Kentucky. At the time of this marriage, A.J. is 42 and Mary is 24 indicating that the children listed on 1860 census may be b y another mother. Children are Laffayet, James, Nancy Ann, John and William Henry. My great grandfather is William Henry Smith and whether this is the right one or not I cannot nail down yet. William Henry died late(presumed to have died Sullivan Co. Tn.) 1894, early 1895 leaving behind wife Sallie and 5 kids Sallie pregnant w/6th child. I am hoping that A.J. is father of my Wm, but I am not sure of mother.
