Birth: Oct., 1818
Jackson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Feb., 1901
Van Buren
Carter County
Missouri, USA

Lourana (my maternal gg-grandmother) was a daughter of Martha Emory and (unknown father at this time). She had 3 known siblings: Wiley W. Harris (presumed half-brother), Winnie Emory Turner, Rebecca Emory (Harris?) and at least one other sister (name unknown).

On December 31, 1835, she was married to Alexander Smith by Richard Alcorn, a Minister of the Gospel in Jackson Co., TN. (Richard Alcorn was a brother of my paternal ggg-grandfather, Robert Alcorn).

They had 5 children: Louisa Smith Hargate, James Alexander, Wiley W. (named after his uncle Wiley W. Harris), Martha E. Smith Smith, and Rice Ross (named after his uncle, Rice Ross Turner).

Alexander died on June 20, 1850 in Wilson Co., TN and his burial place is unknown at this time.

Lourana married Jonathan Yates on December 4, 1856 and after he died she married Hugh Austin in 1869, but divorced him. She lived with her son, Wiley W., from 1873 until her death sometime in February, 1901.

There is no tombstone marking her grave, but she is probably buried in the Van Buren City Cemetery where her son, Wiley, and his two wives are buried.
