    BARDIN, BARDINS, SMITH posted by Catherine Smith on Wednesday, August 6, 1997

    John Wilson SMITH married Celia BARDIN in 1840, residents of Pontotoc Co. They had 5 children-Nancy Elizabeth, William, James, Jacob, and Eliza. John W. was a post master at Old Town Creek during the CW. Jacob married Anna Springer of Itawamba Co. in CA abt 1872. All of this family went on to California in the 70's. However John Wilson had a brother William SMITH who stayed in MS. He married L.A. and had a daughter M. who married a Durham. This has a lot of abreviations for which I would like to find names. We would like to find descendants of William and L.A. SMITH and to find whether this family came from NC as the BARDINS did. This family also was connected to Davis, Cook, Bardin, Holmes, and Paynes. Can anyone help?
