  • Name Brooks Smith 
    Born Jan 1796  TN,USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Brooks Smith was b/ 1800 TN per the 1850 Jackson Co, AL census, but his grave
      gives his birth as "Jan. 1796, NC."

      However, it may be that where he was born in NC later became part of TN, though most Eastern (NC bordering) states were pretty well established as TN
      by 1796, though they may have changed county boundaries.

  • Notes 
    • 3) The father of the younger Brooks Smith b/ 1796 is inferred to be a "James A. Smith," because a "James A. Smith" was aged 88 and living in Brooks’ home in 1850 Jackson Co, AL.

      a) Because the older Brooks Smith b/ 1766 m/ Rebecca Daniels in 1788 in Washington Co, TN had a presumed brother, James who m/ 1791 in Washington Co, TN to Esther McDonalds, this latter couple could be Brooks (b/ 1796) parents, i.e. James A. Smith m/ Esther McDonalds.
