      1813 Tax List of Marion Co. MS
      Although no gravestone remains, both Stephen and Jemimah are believed to have been buried at Friendship. Stephen was born 1763 in Cumberland Co. NC and believed by some to have been a member of the "TRIO", possibly brothers, of "Stephen, Isham, and Nicholas" that came to MS from Franklin Co. GA in c.1812. Stephen is believed to have moved to the "Nathan Smith Settlement" in NE GA sometime around 1795. In an army report dated 1798, Stephen Smith was listed as having "removed" from this settlement. In 1798, he bought land from Thomas Gregg on the Hutson River in Franklin Co. GA. On 21 Sep 1811, he sold this same land in GA and was most likely in MS by 1812. He was listed on the Marion Co. MS tax rolls of 1813. Stephen settled on the east side of the west fork of the Bogue Chitto, about four miles west of Brookhaven, where the Zetus road crosses the Bogue Chitto and lived there until his death. - Sources: Information from Jennings Smith (Brookhaven, MS) and notes from John Paul Smith and James Elliott Smith, Marion Co. and Lawrence co. MS tax rolls, Lawrence Co. MS census records.
