Carra was born December 13, 1876 and I believe she married William Harrison Smith on March 1, 1891 (date needs confirmation). Children:

- James Dennis b. May 14, 1903 d. Feb. 19, 1978

Carra's father was E. C. Stamey and mother was Nancy Stamey.

According to Sam Kissiah's death certificate, he was married to a Ruby at the time of his death. He had a cousin-in-law Ruby Helms who married an unknown Kissiah and I wonder if it was him. Ruby was the daughter of John Helms and Nealy Broome. Nealy married 2nd to Sam's uncle James Willard Kissiah.
