Message Board Post:
I just saw this post and was interested in the information that stated "Silas
siblings were Nancy (md. Jacob Smith)". My wife's maternal great great
grandmother was Jane N. Lankford, born about 1817 in Tennessee. She may have been known
as Jane Nancy or Nancy Jane. She married David Claborne Smith. His name is also written
as Caleb, Clayborn, Claiborne, Claborne and Claiborn in various records. I have seen
information that his father may have been Moses Smith but have no documented evidence of
this. He was born about 1813 in Tennessee. Another piece of information that interested
me was the mention of a Native American bloodine in the Lankford line since my wife's
mother mentioned that she had "Indian blood" but did not know more than that.
I would like to know if there is a possibility that my wife's GGGandmother is a sister
to Silas Lankford. Any information is appreciated and I am willing to share the
information I have.
