How delighted I was to see your note of inquiry on Davidson Smith. You have given me a long sought after answer. I believe my info. will help Mr. Lendell Smith. David Alexander Smith was born in 1835 in Stanly County. He married a Martha Lampley from Anson County. They had 3 children: twins William Addison and Charles W.and a daughter Cornelia who married a Tomlinson then a Howard. Wm. is burried at Red Hill Anson Cty., Charles W. in Bethel Meth. near Wadesboro and "Nealie" I don't know. My great grandfather was William Addison, and my grandfather was Thomas Kenneth Smith who lived near Wightman Church. I have tried so many times to get a reference to David Alexander's father. Maybe I've come upon somthing with your reference to Richard. I have seen his name often but didn't make the connection. Several questions from me. Any idea where D.A. or Richard is buried? Martha is supposedly buried at Bethel Meth., but I have not found her tombstone (or it is illegible). Any background on the Lampleys or where Richard might have been born? I'll hope to hear from you.
