        My great-grandparents are James and Jemima Smith. They lived in Perry County TN with son Jesse on the 1870 census. Jemima’s parents were Thomas Smith and Mary Woods Smith from Perry County TN. Jemima also had a brother Elisha and a sister Sarah. James had brothers Jeremiah, Thomas, Edward and sisters Nelly and Mary. They were from Dickson County originally. James and Jemima moved to Barry County Missouri in the early 1870’s. Any relatives out there from Perry County or Dickson County? Would like to share information if interested.
