Atkins on the 2nd of November 1835. Mathew was also a Methodist preacher. Lawerance owned approximately 1100 acres of land on the west side of the Cumberland River, 15 miles north of Dover. Records indicate that he traded one Negro valued at $500.00 for land in Stewart County, also that he sold Acree 33 acres. Lawerance died on the 7th day of October, 1849 in Stewart County Tennessee of a fever. His wife Nancy was shown on the 1850 census as having one female negro slave girl that was 19 years old living with her. The 1860 census shows her living with her daughter Mary, and her family.

John (Jackson) Baggett

Recent research and the help of Leah Siegel, have brought to my attention that Jackson Baggett appears to have been known as “John” instead of Jackson. We will now be calling him John as most records indicate.
We first find John and American Baggett in the 1850 Montgomery county, Tn. census. They are both 21 years of age. This would put his birth at around 1829. It appears that he and American probably had just got married because there are no children in the home. Previous information from others state that America’s last name was Black. No marriage record has been located at this time.
Next we find John and a Mary (probably a nickname for American) in the 1870 Stewart county census. It is stated that he is 38 years old and was born in Tennessee. This would have John born in 1831. This census was taken in December 1869, but conflicts with the 1850 census for his age. The census states that Mary is 40 which lends credence that she was born in 1829. They have 6 of their 7 children living in the home with time: Jessie 17, Robert 15, Margaret 9, Burrell 6, Jarroll (which is probably John Wesley) and Mollie 5 months. John is shown as being a laborer.
Mary (American) appears to have died sometime before 1881, because John next married Elizabeth (Lizzie) Ladd. I have not found the marriage record proving this at this time. It is recorded in Lizzie’s death certificate that she was born on the 8 of August, 1859. Census records indicate she was born in Kentucky. Her parents are unknown to us at this time but the census states her father was born in the Kentucky and her mother was born in Michigan.
In the 1900 Census for Houston County, Jackson is listed with his wife, Margaret (according to Arrie Brown Baggett's World War I Registration Card, her name was Marguret Elizabeth Baggett). Jackson’s birth date is shown as August 1831, Lizzie’s as August 1859.
In the 1910 Census for Stewart County, TN, Lizzie Baggett is listed as a widow.
John died sometime 1900. His parents are unknown at this time.
In a WWI registration record for Lizzie and John’s son Horace Leonard, dated 5 June 1917 he states that he is the only one to support his invalid mother. Lizzie would be about 57 years old at this time. Lizzie died on 7 November, 1935 at age 76 and is buried in Houston County, Tn at the Ham Cemetery.

The Andrew Jackson Smith Jr. Family

Andrew Jackson Jr., Cora, Ethel, Lillian (on lap of Cora) and Bertha Smith
This picture appears to have been taken circ, 1905-06

This picture was sent to me by one of my blog followers, Leah Siegel. Andrew and Cora are my great grandparents. I have always wanted to know what they looked like. My family doesn't have any family pictures; with the exception of a few, other then this generation. My grandmothers house burned down and if she had any, they are long since gone. I only have one picture of Andrew and Cora's son Elmer whom is my mother's dad and you can hardly see his face. I would love to see my grandfather, Elmer Eugene Smith's face!

When Leah sent this to me last night, it was one of the greatest gifts that I could ever receive. I want to thank her publicly for this wonderful gift.

Any family pictures that can be shared with me would be truly welcomed.

Thank you Leah!
