Just a short
introduction and to say a very big
to for allowing me the opportunity add his family ties to my
Warren County, Illinois, web site. Martin lives about 60 miles west of
Austin Texas, in the small town of Kingsland, on a beautiful lake, L. B. J.
This will be a little bit of a challenge for me as he has sent me so many
pages. So, check back frequently for an update... will let you know
when it's the end; which in my line there is never and end.
Don't just love it?????

Hello my name is Marvin Smith,
and I'm here to tell you about my Smith family and their connections to
Warren County, IL. Hopefully will be able to help some people out and
to come in contact with people who can add to my family file. Foxie is
kind enough to do this for me and with her help and the help of others who
come in to view this site we can make it one big happy family....
William B. Smith 1793-1856, is my 4th
great grandfather & is buried in the northeast corner of the Lenox union
cemetery a broken stone, by his son Andrew Jackson smith.
There is still a lot of family members
living there and surrounding communities, with your help, could benefit
froma family history book
I want to send to you, to benefit the
community. There was a very nice article about him and his family in the
Review Atlas, December 1959 and his untimely death
to save his grandson.
Try and get it online very soon...

Wm. B. Smith and his wife Christina Sites filed a
long separation papers, that they could not get along, and have decided to live apart the
rest of their lives, this was august 1843, it was with Abraham Lincoln,
the Uncle to president Lincoln to see that Christina was comfortable for
the rest of her life.
Wm. B. Smith came to Warren County, Illinois with
his house maid and daughter, they were married in Monmouth in 1850, after
he died, his son, David, had papers drawn up and she relinquished all
rights to his estate, her name was Mary Olinger and for $3, 500 she backed
out of his estate. I have no clue where Mary is buried, his estate
was valued at $15,000 in 1856. Most of the fine farm lands went to the
descendants of David's son Charles Jefferson Smith.
next page will take a bit to download. There is an awful lot of
information on it. Biggest one yet. Have gotten through now to
William B. Smith's 3 sons are online... will make a Smith link page later.
Right now you have to follow from page to page.... "
