The Descendants of George Washington Smith and Nancy Shirley

By Chaplain Dan Franklin

Family history book on the Descendants of George Washington Smith and Nancy Shirley is now available. George Washington Smith was born in 1835 in GA and Nancy Shirley was born 1836 in AL. They were married in Clay Co, GA in 1854 and lived in Henry Co, AL until moving to Texas in the late 1870's. They are listed in the 1880 census of Walker Co, TX and the 1900 census of San Jacinto Co, TX. George and Nancy are both buried in County Line Cemetery, San Jacinto Co, TX.

Most descendants live in Liberty, Montgomery, San Jacinto, and Walker counties; but many also live in west Texas and Florida.

Cost is $40 per copy. The book is 371 pages including index. The $40 includes the cost of copying and shipping.

I will make one large printing in late September so please send me your orders by September 15th, 2002. I'll be mailing out the books the first week in October. I will accept orders after that time, but it will make it a little more difficult for me. Please mail your orders and money to:
