Added 30+ images from a photo
album believed to have belonged to John Frederick Smith and/or his
daughter, Jessie F. Smith. John Frederick is believed to also
be the father of David Charles Smith, of Perrysville, Indiana.
Most of the images are not identified, so if you are a descendant of this
family, please let us know if you recognize any of them.
New surnames added to the Surname
Registry. Check to see if there is a new contact who
may help with your research!
