    Notes 
    • It is my belief that Nancy Smith, wife of Thomas Richardson was the daughter of Isham Smith based on loose, oral history passed down through these families and the following corroboratory facts:

      - Thomas and Nancy Richardson lived adjacent to Isham and Mary Smith.

      - Thomas Richardson served as a chain carrier for an Isham Smith land grant [chain carriers were generally closely connected to those receiving land grants]

      - Thomas and Nancy named a son Isham Thomas Richardson.

      - Thomas and Nancy named a daughter Lydia [likely after Nancy's sister Lydia]

      - Lydia Smith, daughter of Isham and likely sister to Nancy named her only child Nancy.

    Notes 
    • Nancy Jane Smith's Death Certificate listed her mother as Lydia Smith. It seems likely that she was an illegitimate child and was raised by her grandparents, Isham and Mary Smith.

    Notes 
    • Martha F. Brown Moore's Death Certificate lists her as the daughter of William Brown and Lydia Smith. Given that she was born 5 years after William Alston Brown died in the Civil War it is likely she was illegitimate.
