  1. Once again so many of your postings connect with my family. John E. Smith and Ellen Lyons are your great great grandparents. I have their dauthter Melvina Ann Smith in my database wife of Joseph Benedict Napoleon Carrico. (Carricos connects with my Porter Family) I am trying to find the rest of your ancestors, that is how John E. Smith is your great great grandfather. Can you send his descendants down to your parents or email me personally. You always send a wealth of information, and I am trying to connect with them. In addition your posting of Isiah Hill and Lydia Ross was marvelous. I should be able to connect with him too as I have numerous Hills but do not know who is descendants are. I would appreciate your help. Thanks in advance Dottie Porter Himes

    • I descend from Melvina Ann Smith who married Joseph Benedict Napoleon Carrico – their son Joseph Rueben Carrico married Mary Alice Montgomery – they are my grandparents. Their daughter, Catherine Lyons Carrico, is my mother. Glad you enjoyed the post about the Hill’s – there will be several more in the next few days.

Any thoughts?
