    • Date of ca 1805, either TN or KY.

      Date & location is estimated only based on his oldest son, Elijah's birth of ca 1806, TN or KY.

      Patrick's father-in-law, David Lindsey, was living in the January 1809 Madison Co, AL MS Territory per that census and yet Patrick is nowhere to be found, so was originally thought to be back in TN where he was alleged born (his later census records) and thus married.

      However, after years of giving her father, Elijah (son of Patrick) as born in TN, in 1910 Crawford Co, AR census, Mary Jane Smith Kilpatrick (aka Kirkpatrick) states
      he (Elijah) was born in KY.

      This may well be true because from 1785-1805, David Lindsey (Patrick's father in law) was living in Greene Co, TN, but in 1805 he moved to Claiborne Co, TN.
      Claiborne Co, TN borders what is now Whitley Co, KY and Whitley was formed of Knox Co, KY. One of Patrick's most probable father candidates (KY James Smith m/ Nancy Mulkey) was then living in Knox Co, KY. IF Patrick is son of this James,
      then this puts the Lindseys within throwing distance of the Smiths for the young couple to have then met and married. And as neither this James nor our Patrick is KNOWN to have been in Alabama until the 1830 Jackson Co, AL census, then
      Elijah's birth shortly thereafter (ca 1806 in KY or TN) is probable.
