Findley's of Mississippi
Posted by: Terri Smith-Escamillo (ID *****1613) Date: April 20, 2011 at 16:18:05

I am looking for information on my great great grandfather Richard Smallwood Perry Allison Findley and his siblings and parents. There is a lot of info floating around and incorrect bd for him. Smallwood was a 7th son of a 7th son and a faith healer who lived to be 107 years old according to a newspaper article printed a few months before he died. His actual birth date is 1819 Jackson County, MS and he died in 1824 Hinton, Oklahoma.
His mother died when he was 3 days old and his father gave him and his 2 year old brother Jep Fanin Findley to a man named Mays/Mayes and kept the 5 oldest boys. Due to the 7th son statement, his father Richard Findley must have 6 older brothers as well. His father was from Ireland and his mother from Germany and they met on the ship coming to America. His mothers name is unknown

Smallwood also had a son my great grandfather Jeptha Findley 1865
