SMITH, PRESLEY, WATERSON, I am looking for information on my grand- father, Noah Alvin SMITH -- A Rogersville native. His mother, Louise PRESLEY, died not long after he was born. His father, Berry SMITH, was said to be Cherokee and the "family stories" referred to the Cherokee name as being "... TURKEY". My grandfather had one sister, Callie and two brothers, Rhode and Sam. Berry SMITH died when my grandfather was about five or six. He was then taken in by the WATERSON family of Rogersville. I am having alot of difficulty locating Berry SMITH's parents' names, as well as which direction to turn for more information on the Cherokee lineage (I'm very neew at this). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Leonard Wallace 3 Mar 1998
WALLACE, In the 1840 Census, the Jonathan WALLACE Family was shown in Buncombe County follows: Male- 1 40-49 years 2 15-19 years 2 10-14 years Female- 1 20-29 years 2 0-4 years. We know that he was born in N.C. He and his family moved to Hawkins County, Tennessee sometime between 1840-1843. The following data shows in the 1850 census for Hawkins County District 14: Family # Name Age Sex Occ. Birthpl. --156 Wallace, Jonathan 63 M Farmer NC Martha 32 F NC Selina 11 F NC Dinah 9 F NC Jonathan 7 M TN William 5 M TN Catherine 3 F TN
157 Wallace, Riley 23 M Laborer NC Jane 21 F TN Jackson 1 M TN
158 Wallace, Thomas 21 M Laborer NC Sparks, John 18 M Laborer NC Anna 20 F TN. We assume the Jonathan Sr. Married a second time. Martha was 22 when Jonathan Sr. was 53 in the 1840 timeframe. We also assume that Riley and Thomas were sons of Jonathan Sr. in his first marriage since they lived close by in the 1850 census. They also match the ages in the 1840 NC census. We know that Martha (Jonathan died?) brought her family across the Cumberland Gap in the 1850's and settled in Kentucky. I have visited her gravesite. Unfortunately, we do not know her maiden name. We also know that Jonathan Jr. was in the Civil War. He was in the 1st Battery of the Kentucky Light Art. and wounded at the Battle of Stone's River, TN around 1/1/63. He was also charged with mutiny and sentenced to 3 months hard labor. I have visited the National Archives and viewed numerous documents relating to him. The only thing I can find before 1840 was a John Wallace b) 12/14/1786 to a William Wallace and Phereby Brinson in Onslow Co., NC. The dates match up but there's no way to know if it's him. I would appreciate any help in finding out about Jonathan and his family after moving to Hawkins County. Perhaps Someone knows of the Riley Wallace family, since we assume he would be the firstborn son of Jonathan. They may have more info. Thank You!
