Smith's Do you know if this Benjamin Preston and Susanna Shirley had a son Preston? I have scrap books of my great grandmothers and there are many clippings of about Fayette, IN and the Shirley family. I did not know how or if they were connected. Amanda Moore born Jan 21, 1849 in Hendricks Co married Preston Smith March 26, 1867 in Boone Co.In. They had Cora E., Lusa A., Poy C., Frank H., Claude, Stephen, David and Estella.
Amanda's sister Nancy Ellen Lane married Thomas Franklin Lane and they are my gr-gr-grandparents. Many of the Moore family are buried at Mt Tabor in Fayette. Grandpa and Grandma Lane are buried at Mts Run east of Lebanon.
