Smith Family Entries From Mickel’s Johnson Co AR Compilation

In my last post, I talked about a new book that I had found that I thought would help me locate my ancestor, David Smith in Johnson County, Arkansas. I was able to locate the book at the NC State Library, however I was not able to find my David Smith in the index. I did, however, briefly skim through and jot down some other Smith families that I thought would be of interest to me.
