    Notes 
    • His descendant, Sherilyne "Sam" Palmer wrote, in April 2013, that Samuel Henry was a blacksmith, like his father, Obediah Smith (wife Matilda UNKNOWN).  Obediah and Matilda were in Logan Co, KY in 1840 Census and in 1880 Census. Samuel Henry Smith and his wife, Mary Elizabeth, moved to Texas by train in 1891, near Dallas.  They lived in Dallas Co., and Tarrant Co.  In 1896, they lived near Plano; in 1897-1899, a blacksmith in Rhome.  Early 1900's a blacksmith shop in Farmer's Branch; 1901 in Denton.  Their last child, Tate Lyle Smith, was born in/near Renner (?), TX in 1892. Their daughter, Lue Ella Smith, got sick while moving from Plano to Rhome and they stayed in a hotel in/near Grapevine.  She died in the hotel (from T.B.?) in 1899.  Samuel H. bought lots for all of them in Grapevine Cem. in 1899. (from his journal entries)

      The registery of US Civil War Soldiers on Ancestry.com shows that Samuel H.  Smith
      was in the Union forces during the war, serving in the 8th Kentucky Cavalry, Company K, rank Blacksmith                                                                                                   

      Samuel's siblings:
          Francis Smith -- b. abt. 1838, KY; d. before 1880 Census; m. Dec 18, 1865 to Margaret McLemore Henderson, dau of Joel McLemore and Rachel Stinson; (she was a first cousin to Mary Elizabeth McLemore; Francis was her 2nd marriage); Margaret was widow in 1880 census with 3 children listed, Josephus 8, Margaret 6, and Beauchamp 3.  Francis and Margaret were in 1870 Census, Logan Co, KY under Household of John W. Lamb and wife Mary.  Lambs were neighbors to Obediah Smith (Frank's father).  I believe that if Goodwin McLemore's wife was Mary Lamb -- her relatives were the neighbors to the Smith's and were the ones who took Hiram McLemore as a boarder when his parents, John and Caroline, died.  An A. J. Lamb was witness to marriage of Francis Smith and Margaret McLemore Henderson.

          Julia A. Smith, b. abt 1842, age 5 in 1850 Census; single and still at home in 1880 Census, Fillmore, Logan Co, KY.
