Joe had a half brother, Amos B. Smith, b.1898 d.1957. I have

Bottom as an address. I believe she may have been born around
1865, she died about 1909-10, Amos was about 10-11 years old when
she died. She is buried at the Flynn Cemetery in Jackson Co, no

MURRAY, the wife of James MURRAY, after the 1900 Clay County,
Tennessee Census? That's the last time I ever saw of her...She had
three children back then and was listed as a "widow". James MURRAY
does not show up in that record. In fact, on the 1870 Monroe
County, Kentucky Census, James does not show then. Sarah is listed
as the head-of-household and a "farmeress" with a few children:
Barbara age 22; Elizabeth age 16; and possibly a grandchild,
Amanda age 2. If I can't find James MURRAY, I would like to know
what happened to Sarah. Some children had grown up, gotten
married. Did she move to live with one of them? I know of one son,
George W. MURRAY, who married Sarah A. COPASS, the daughter of
Thomas H. COPASS and Nancy J. GULLEY. This family moved after the
1910 Clay County, Tennessee Census, to Weaver, Williamson County,
Illinois, in Southern Illinois, near Herrin.
