Looking for information regarding William Riley Smith, born in Jefferson County around 19 Mar 1829, reportedly a full blooded Cherokee who was taken in as a boy by a Smith family. His mothers name may be Elizabeth, but he was separated from her and the rest of his family very early. WRS later married Lucy Cates Van Dyke around 1954, and they lived in the Stawberry Plains area. They later moved north to Indiana with their children. I know what happend from there, just looking for information on which Smith family he lived with in Jefferson County. Any help would be appreciated.
