Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Leslie MITCHELL Smith. I have been working on family history research on my husband's lines since 1999. I enjoy putting all of the "puzzles" together.

I am currently working on putting all of my husband's family onto FindaGrave. If you have any additions and/or corrections, please feel free to contact me. I also have my files posted on

I have been helped by so many others over the years that I am very willing to help gather information for other researchers. I do still have children at home, so I try to do my research while they are in school. So, please be patient with me :o)

Addie Claunch Nugent #8604752
I noticed that you maintain this memorial. I realize this is just a shot in the dark but you mention that you are working on your husbands family. I was hoping that Addie might be a part of his family that your working on. She was a sister to my great grandfather, Perry Francis Claunch. My daddy spent several years before his death in 2007 attempting to find the connection to Heironmus Glantz(the original Claunch in America) and our family. And since then I have been trying to do the same. Would you by any chance know the connection or maybe know who to point me to?

Photo requests for St. Pats, Bay City
I was unable to fill these requests because the office lady is very unhelpful about locating graves. She hates a list so I have found it easiest for the individual who is requesting the photo to find out the location. I have an index of existing tombstones that some nice ladies did for the Bay County GENWEB but that's for the old St. Pats where most burials are from the early 1900s. Sorry!

RE: Hannah Colcord @ Topeka Cemetery
The are three Colcords buried at Topeka Cemetery, all in section 60 lot 3

Doan Colcord in lot 3, grave N3.

Hannah Colcord in lot 3, space S3, Oct 7, 1806-Feb 12, 1901

Marion G Colcord, also in grave S3 (there must have only been two grave locations in that lot) Aug 18, 1845-Oct 15, 1903. is the cemetery's on-line database that lists all grave information.

hope that helps

RE: Archibald Elza Hankins & Leonard Niles Hankins
Then it is nice to meet you Leslie. I think that would make us 2nd cousins? Alma Hankins Tait was my paternal grandmother....which sibling of Archibald's was your husband's grandparent?

Archibald Elza Hankins & Leonard Niles Hankins

Are you related to these 2 men? If not, would you please consider transferring their memorials to me? Archibald (Find A Grave #37666568) is my great grandfather & Leonard (linked to him) is my great uncle. Archibald's daughter, Alma, was my paternal grandmother.

Thank you.

Claunch Family
Hello Leslie,
During the 1980's and early 90's my father and his brother spent many of their weekends visiting libraries searching for information about our family history. Back then sadly I was not interested. My daddy died in 2007' and a couple years ago I decided to try and continue his work. I was hoping you might could tell me the connection from Wiley Truehart Claunch born abt. 1822 in St Clair Co., Al. to Hieronymus Jeremiah Glantz born abt. 1703 in Germany, who arrived in America in 1732. I know there are a few generations between the two but can't seem to figure it out.
Any help would appreciated.

Ruth Ellen Stubbs
Hello is there a possibility of having this listing transferred to me 18409987 Ruth Ellen Stubbs. This is my Great grandmother, and I would like to add some more information about her history to her Find a grave. I am doing this for my 82 Y/o Mother who is blind. We have so many things we would like to add including images of her youth. We purchased her headstone for her as she did not have one at the time of her death.
Thank you so much,

RE: Oak Hill Cemetery
There were other Sides burials there. The Santa Barbara Genealogical Society website has listing of all burials in that cemetery.

RE: Oak Hill Cemetery
I thought I did (was taking other photos) but found that I overlooked it. So sorry. If you keep this active maybe someone else will pick it up. I was there for a funeral but will never go back.,it is 3 hours away from me.
