D'Ann Smith
Manerva Smith and Milton Sterling
My name is D'Ann (Allen) Smith

Milton and Manerva are my 2xggrandparents thru
Mary Alice Sterling (Married James Marion Cherry)
then their daughter Rutha Ethel Cherry (married Ulysses Short. Their daughter Wanda Short (married Don Allen)is my mother.

My question is do you know any information on Manerva and/or Milton's parents?

I know that Manerva is linked to Pleasant C. Smith and Margaret Duncan but dates don't seem to fit.

Also I looked at 1880 census and found Manerva with Milton as should be but also found Manerva Smith (different dob) with her parents in Georgia in 1880.

I do know Milton and Manerva were married in 1868 in Yell Arkansas.

I am not very experienced in genealogy. Just doing this for my own curiosity.

I would appreciate any information or help with getting information somewhere else.

Thank you for your time.
D'Ann Smith

There is a duplicate grave photo on John Herschel David's memorial. Thought you'd want to know. Marlene

Hi David & Gail,
Your memorial page for Lois is a duplicate of #25854718, but it has wonderful family connections that the original page doesn't have. You may want to contact Ron West, manager of that page and discuss the best way to merge the 2 pages. He's real easy to work with.
