BRANDON, DEATHERAGE, EVERETT, ROBERTS, SMITH posted by Darla Rohan on Tuesday, July 1, 1997

Hi, I'm looking for the county where my grandparents were married. I think they eloped, but I'm not sure. They were married July 14, 1907. Their names are: Gilbert Jackson SMITH and Grace Alcenia ROBERTS. Gilbert was working on the Jake ROBERTS place near Star, in Mills Co., and that's how he met my grandmother. She was 15 and he was 24. Also, I am trying to locate the parents of Gilbert. They were: Jesse Nelms SMITH and Ruth Mae BRANDON. Jesse's parents were Sebe and Nancy Adeline EVERETT SMITH. Ruth's parents were Alex and Sarah DEATHERAGE BRANDON. I need anything on these folks. Thanks, Darla Smith Rohan :
