I have Smiths on my Maternal and Paternal side of the family and finding those on my Maternal side have proved to be quite difficult, especially since I only have the initials BP to go by. However, since he had nine children you would think there would be a DNA match at some point.
BP Smith is my GG Grandfather and is my brick wall. There is no one left in the family that knows anything further that my G Grandfather Thomas R Smith. So I tried to work backwards from Thomas and found information on his brother Joe Smith online and actually had his Mother and Father listed, which is how I obtained the name BP Smith. Based on what I found so far BP was a Dr. in Ft. Gaines GA, he married Sarah E Green and resided in Cotton Hill GA. Based on the ages of the children he may have been married before Sarah, have tried to find census with childrens name and can find nothing other than a daughter Erie.
BP was born 1819 died 1889. If anyone has any further information that could help me through this wall, I certainly would appreciate it.September 21, 2016
