    Notes 
    • My great great great grandfather was “Francis Smith”, b. 1789 in Virginia, supposedly Halifax county, d. 1868 in Lincoln county TN, who married Frances “Fanny” Gray in Bedford county TN in 1812. The kicker here is that Francis Smith was supposedly a pseudonym because he was the “black sheep son of an Anglican minister” who left Virginia after an argument with his father and came to Tennessee. He had a sister or half sister, Nancy, who, when she died in 1862, was listed as “Miss Nancy Crookshanks”. She never married, so the name he apparently changed from was Crookshanks/Cruickshanks.
