Smith Genealogy
The only Smith I am sure of in my ancestry is Arlifsah ("Liffie") Smith.  Research that I have been doing to try and find out more about Arlifsah (or Arliffah?) "Liffie" Smith Altman (1856-1936) has revealed some interesting information.  She fairly consistently lists her father's (first name unknown) birthplace as North Carolina and usually lists her mother's as Georgia.  She herself was born in Georgia.  She and James Thomas (J.T.) Altman were married in Smith Co., Texas (Tyler area) in 1876.  I hoped to find her Smith family in the 1870 census, but didn't find a match.  I'm not sure when she and her family arrived in Texas.  After her marriage to J.T. Altman, she was in Smith Co., TX in the 1880 census (along with son Emory), and of course the 1890 census was lost.  The 1900 census has the family in Coryell County, Texas where Emory met and married Hester Chappell Griggs, my great-grandmother.  The family also lost a son, Berlin Altman there (buried in Murphree Cemetery near Evant), and J.T.'s mother, Mary Ann Poole Altman Trussell, also buried in Murphree.

I have since found the family in the 1910 Federal Census in Coke County, Texas (Bronte), and Thomas L. Altman is still with the family at that point.  J.T. died in Bronte in 1912 (His tombstone in Bronte's Fairview Cemetery apparently reads July 31, 1852 - April 6, 1912).  At some point after this, Liffie begins to live with her daughter Eva who has married James L. Brown.  In 1920, they are in Floyd Co., Georgia, and probably were there by 1917 since one of the Brown children (Herman) shows his birthplace to be Georgia on the census in that year (he is 2 years 5 months in January of 1920, meaning he was born about August, 1917).  They return to Texas by 1924, appearing on the Runnels Co., Texas census in 1930.  James & Eva Brown have 4 sons listed, James A., Baxter, Herman and Edwin, but daughter Earline is no longer there (either married and out, or she has died) and Arliffah (as it is spelled) is shown as mother-in-law.  This is the last census she will be counted in, as she dies in 1936 either in Runnels County, or whereever the family has been, but she is buried in Bronte, near her husband J.T. who died 24 years earlier.  She was 80 at the time of her death, and J.T. was 60.
