Bio and Links
Bio Photo Maiden name is Sharon Rose Gallagher. Married Lee Roy Smith, 1963 and widowed in 1979. Lee was born Dec. 20, 1942 in Manchester, Clay Co KY. We had one son Todd Michael Smith and one daughter Staci Lee Smith (deceased). Re-married and had another daughter Kristin Loretta Shaffer.

I am into genealogy, so I thought I would document some of my info and many photo's here. Here is a picture in my much younger days, a senior in High School. I am now 70, and you wouldn't want to see one of those pics!!!

Juda Lewis
Hi, My name is Lisa Smith Spencer. I am from Clay County KY. I am sending this message to let you know that the Cemetery that you have for Juda Lewis is not correct. I know where he is buried along with his wife and almost all of their children.

They are buried in the Southern end of Clay County in what is known as John's Branch on the Judah Lewis Cemetery. As soon as possible I will post pictures of this cemetery.

My sister and I did a cemetery book of Southern Clay County and the Clay County Historical Society has a copy of this book.

There was another Juda Lewis in this Lewis family. I will put it in my public tree on Ancestry. But I have just started so it is going to take a while to get to that point. I almost made the same mistake myself is the reason I know there are 2 of them.

Love you site and will be a contributor of pics of graves as soon as I can get them all down loaded.

Thanks in advance
Lisa Smith Spencer

Isham Stewart 1850 US Census
Hi Sharon--

Thank for the information on Isham Stewart and family. If my genealogy is correct, he would be my partner's fourth great grandfather. I just wanted to let you know that an Isham Stewart appears in the 1850 US Census living in Clay County, Kentucky, along with his wife, Margaret, and seven of his children. The children are: Sally, Nancy, Eli, Rebecca, Isaac, Joseph, and James. I hope this is useful to you.

The London Sentinel newspaper, London, KY
Thursday 1 February 1917;Front Page, Column 6


On January 2nd, 1917, the death angel visited our home and took from us our dear mother Rachel Jones, who was ninety-six years, 2 month and 8 days old.

She was married to Darling Jones about January 10, 1836 and to this union were born eleven children: of those five have preceded her to the grave, leaving W. H. Jones, of Sidney, Nebraska; Nancy Woodward, of Piper, Kansas; Kate Sasser, of Mitchel, Oregon; E. D. and F. H. Jones, of Boering; Hannah Payne, of Carrol, Idaho, who still survive her.

She joined the Baptist church at Robinson Creek, Laurel County, about 1820 and lived a devoted Christian life for more than fifty-six years. In her death the church has lost one of its most highly esteemed members, the community a kind and loving neighbor, and her children one of their best earthly friends, but our loss is her eternal gain. Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord from henceforth; yea, saith the spirit that they may rest from their labors and their works do follow them.

It was hard indeed to part bur Christ's strong arm supported me, can I forget the agonizing hour when those loving eyes were closed to awake no more. Sleep on dear mother in quiet sleep, while friends in sin over thee weep.

A loving son
T. H. J.

You too? Any Gambrels or related families you don't want I'll take. Also any relatives of Andrew or Anthony Martin, Nervesta Clouse or Disney. As you know they are all related to my side of the Gambrel family. I still contribute to Find A Grave but I understand since so many of my online friends no longer do.

Sharon, thank you for the transfer, I appreciate it, but it wasn't necessary for you to do so. I only wanted to let you know what his dc said and you and I both know that information is not necessarily correct. Thanks again.
