> Moved to Ala. then to Texas.

Sanford Vandiver Smith was my second-great-grandfather and the youngest  of 6 children of Nimrod Smith and Lettice Nicoll Wyatt.

He was born in South Carolina on 05 Oct 1813 and died in Talladega, Talladega Co., Ala., on 07 Feb 1885. He never left Alabama for Texas, although some of his children did.

On 15 Aug 1836, in Abbeville Co., S.C., he married Miriam Dean McGregor, daughter of William McGregor and Miriam Dean. She was born in Abbeville Co. on 03 Jan 1812 and died in Talladega, Talladega Co., Ala., on 15 Jan 1892.

They had eight children, and there are many descendants, including me.

I inherited family papers including newspaper obituaries and notes from grandson Nathan Howard Phillips dated Sept. 9, 1918, stating:

                 I was present at the death of Sanford Vandiver Smith, my grandfather, at his  home at Talladega, Ala., Feb. 7,                         1885.  Also at the death of my grandmother  Miriam McGregor Smith at the same place Jan. 15, 1892. They are                     both buried at the Lewis graveyard four miles out of Talladega and the graves appropriately marked.
