4 According to an account left by his son, Francis Marion Smith, Nathan Foster Smith "did not write or keep any accounts" and lost track of his year of birth. The same account states that N.F. Smith had a great deal of sickness as a child and, as soon as his father and mother had died (the latter in 1820) N.F. Smith left Wilkes County and moved to "middle Georgia". While N.F. Smith received several legacies of cash and land under the Will of his father, Nathan Smith, he did not appear to have prospered. When he moved to Newton County in about 1821, he may have been encouraged to do so by his aunt, Elizabeth (Zechie) Smith, who had married William Chaffin, Jr. and moved to Walton (later Newton) County shortly before that time. According to his son, Francis Marion Smith, after his daughter Frances and her husband John F. Clifton moved to Arkansas in the Fall of 1857, Nathan Foster Smith and his wife followed in March of 1858. They settled in Pulaski County, Arkansas, 25 miles north of Little Rock. The country was unhealthy, and the family had much sickness. After the War Nathan's health was broken, and he died in December 1866. [Source: Frances Marion Smith, is the source of the only first-hand information we have about the Smith family, resulting from two letters he wrote to his niece, Annie Thompson Smith, in 1908.] The Centennial History of Arkansas Methodism, 1815-1935, contains a brief biography of Frances Marion Smith. He joined the Confederate Army in June 1862 and served until the end of the War. Smith, Nathan Foster (I10140)

44 From Kim Austin:
I was at the Dallas library tonight and noticed a book I had overlooked previously. It was one of those family heritage books for Ashley County Arkansas: REFLECTIONS OF ASHLEY COUNTY (including HISTORY OF ASHLEY COUNTY by Y. W. Etheridge) compiled by Robert A. Carpenter, Sr. and Mary Imogene Noble Carpenter in 1987. On page 195, family story F 18, there is an Austin story. There are some mistakes (for example: Seaborn J. Austin is called "Geaburn Austin') but I thought I would pass along the info anyway. "AUSTIN FAMILY": G(S)eaburn Austin, a doctor of medicine, did his practice on horse back, specializing in obstetrics. He and his wife had four sons: Cole, Henry, Joseph Wesley, and Joseph Allen Austin. Joseph W. Austin married Susan Jane Jones and remained in Columbus, Georgia. He fought and was wounded in the Civil War in the Battle of Shiloh, and died just before or right after reaching home of his wound. In the Arkansas Gazette of April 14, 1947, Joseph W. Austin was listed as being in the Company G, 6 Arkansas Regt., promoted to captain, and killed at Shiloh. He was the third son of Geaburn Austin.

To this union was born Luella W. Austin in 1861, and Joseph Marcellus Austin born in 1862. Susan Jane being a widow with these two children later married Dr. Allen Wesley; Austin born 1840, brother of John Wesley. These Austins moved to Ashley County and are now buried in Portland Cemetery. Some of the families settled at Mt. Pleasant and are buried there.

To the later union were born 9 children: Mary Ophelia, another Sallie Edna who married a Holloway, mother of Hunter Hollaway and a daughter. Hunter lives in Lake Village. Joseph Marcellus Austin married Carrie Daniel Christian and raised their children in Ashley County near Hamburg. After these children were grown they moved to the northern part of Hamburg. To this union was born Joseph Eugene Wesley Austin in 1888, Irma Austin who married Ashford Wooten, Nona and Alva both died very young, Garland Aubrey Austin in 1899 who married Maggie Adcock on November 21, 1921 and Vera Austin who married Edgar Henderson of Brinkley, Arkansas. Vera taught school for many years in Ashley County.

All the children lived in Ashley County at some time or another. Now they have grandchildren and great-grandchildren serving the best they can in many fields of endeavor, serving in the Air Force and other services. Most have their master degrees." submitted by Mrs. G.A. Austin

Just a few notes on this family from my files that may either confuse or clarify regarding the above:

Seaborn John Austin, born abt 1812 in Jones County Georgia, son of William A. Austin and Amelia Howard, and his wife, Christianne Crew, born abt 1811 in Burke County, Georgia, daughter of Henry Crew and Margaret. They had the following known children:

1. William J. Coleman Austin, born 25 July 1834 in Muscogee County Ga, died 11 Aug 1919 in Ashley County Arkansas, marr. to Rebecca Foster and (2) on 25 Aug 1880 to E. R. Stewart.

2. Joseph Wesley Austin, born abt 1838/1839 in Muscogee County Georgia, died 15 Aug 1864 in Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia, marr. to Susan Jane Jones on 1 Nov 1860 in Chattahoochee County, Georgia.

3. Allen W. Austin, (he was listed on at least one census record as "WiIly"----this leads me to believe his middle name was Willis---not Wesley as listed in some of the info from the Arkansas descendants or Joseph Allen as listed in the info in the book quoted above). Considering his brother was named Wesley, this makes more sense---at least to me!), born 24 April 1840 in Pike County, Alabama, died 27 November 1917 in Ashley County Arkansas, buried in Portland Cemetery in Ashley County Arkansas, marr. to Mrs. Susan Jane (Jones) Austin (widow of his brother, Joseph W.) on 21 Dec 1865 in Chattahoochee County, Georgia.

4. Henry Marcellus Austin, born 12 Aug 1845 in Pike County, Alabama, died 24 March 1895 in Ashley County Arkansas, buried in the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Ashley County, Arkansas., marr. to Martha E. Belle MOOREFIELD on 3 Dec 1868 in Chattahoochee County, Georgia and (2) to Mary Elizabeth SCOTT.

5. Levonia or Leonia F. AUSTIN, born abt 1847 in Muscogee County Georgia (I think she was born in Alabama)

The family moved to Pike County, Alabama sometime between 1834 and 1840. Troy Masonic Lodge 56, Pike County, Alabama records 1851-52 list Seaborn J. Austin as a member of this lodge.
