I am looking for information on William R Smith and Nancy Miller. I found a marriage certificate for them for Roane County. I believe them to be my gr gr gr grandparents, now I have several questions. 1st question, who were there parents? Little or no information is on the marriage certificate as to parents only that William paid the "bounty" or something like that for the marriage. 2nd question, they apparently left Roane County in 1835 or so, possibly a little earlier, what historical event may have caused them to leave? Flood, sickness, Indian removal any of those may have occurred around that time period. 3rd question, were they of native american descent and if so what nation/tribe? Family tales say they were of native american descent but no one living knows for sure.

Thanks,
VL Smith
