  • Notes 
    • a) The middle name is speculative. He had grandsons (by two different fathers) named Alfred Moore Smith and Albert Smith,
      so the A. initial (for the James A. in the 1830 & 1850 Jackson Co, AL census) could stand for either name or something different.

      b) That it was the "James A. Smith" was the one that married Nancy Mulkey is also speculative.
      No marriage or other original record linking the two, including middle initial, has been located.
      c) An older Brooks Smith b/ 1766, formerly of Washington Co, TN was living in Knox Co, KY ca 1809 as alleged was the James m/ Nancy Mulkey. But Brooks’ brother, James, m/ 1791 Washington Co, TN to Esther McDonalds. No evidence of either James m/ Mulkey or James m/ McDonalds having a second wife.

      d) The alleged daughter of James m/ Nancy Mulkey, Mary (Polly), married James Bradford WRIGHT
      in Knox Co, KY in 1809 and the younger ALA Brooks b/ 1796 married Tabitha WRIGHT, presumably in Alabama ca 1820, so the thought is that Smith siblings married Wright siblings. Wright is a common surname.
