      All of Bedford and Elizabeth's children were born in Bedford Co TN. Near the beginning of the War between the States, Bedford, being a strong believer in the Union, decided it was time for the Smith family to move to the North. Two of Bedford's children were probably already in the United States Army at this time. All other members of teh Smith family, along with some of the Whittenburg and Simmons families loaded all their belongings that they wanted to keep into wagons and moved to Southern illinois. It is recorded in the Bledsoe Co Courthouse that Bedford B Smith sold some of his land to Joseph Marr on 2 Mar 1863, so the move must have been made about this time. The families settled in the area of White and Hamilton Counties in Illinois. After a short time, Bedfore and Elizabeth moved to Franklin Co IL where they remained the rest of their lives.
