SMITH of AL
"First time using this chats center and thought I'd check it out. Currently I started tracing around October 1982 and off and on been tracing since. My lines consist of Shelton, Smith, Brown mainly. Currently I havebeen tracing family planation slave owner of the Smiths. All my lines of grandparents are from Alabama. I'm working on as much pictures of actual owners and family members as I can trace. My fifth grandmother, Charity Smith was owned by a Baxter Smith among other slaves then pass to adopted son, Bartholomew Smith and wife Rebecca J. Gardner. These were early first time families who were very wealthy. I have a collection of pictures of some of the places, mansions, and plantations that revolve around them. Which included; Gardiner Island, Weaver Mansion, Bat Smith Plantation, Cedar Plantation, Riverdale Plantation and Emerald Place."
