Doughty & Smith Family
Posted by: Nancy Malcom (ID *****2203) Date: October 27, 2004 at 08:21:03

I am looking for information on the family of John Henry Smith b 1866 d 1957 who in about 1891 married Mary Elizabeth Doughty b 1870 d 1940. They lived in Oakdale, Morgan Co. TN and are buried there in the Piney Cemetery.
Their children were Mary Alice b 1893, Nellie b 1895, Henry Clarence b 1898, William albert b 1900, Leonard b 1903, John Thomas b 1905 and twins Ray & Raymond b 1914.
Supposedly John Henry told his family that the actual family name was originally Stewart but had been changed to Smith (in which generation no one knows) to protect the family from harm.
Any help with info on either Smith or Doughty families would be greatly appreciated as I know nothing on either past these two who are my gr-grandparents. Thanks! Nancy
