Do believe you have helped find an ancestor family
for Carri Vance.
Giles Smith might be
related to W B Smith or Beal Smith?
Do you have a Beal or W B Smith in your family?
Know that Beal Smith lived in Johnson County,Arkansas.
Giles may have had a first name and used Giles as his givenname
because of so many Johns,James and Williams in the family.
Checked my Arkansas Union Soldiers and Confederate Soldiers
Indexes and found the following information in the
Arkansas Confederate Soldiers Pension Index.
Giles Smith
Co. A, Sixth Arkansas Infantry
Applied 1901 in Johnson Co.Arkansas for
his Confederate Civil War Pension.
So know he was alive in 1901 in Johnson Co.AR.
You might want to check the Johnson Co.AR. web site
or the 1900 Johnson County,Arkansas census.
Also check out these sites:
f you want to order the forms for the Arkansas or
other states Union Soldiers Pension and
Military records
go to this site:
<A HREF="">National Archives and Records
Write or E-mal Arkansas History Commission for
Giles Smith's Confederate Civil War Pension Record.
Do not have that site available.
Edward R Gerdes Civil War Page is also where you can submit
questions about
the CSA soldiers on the 1911 CSA Index and they do
look-ups there.
this is the National Park Service site
<A HREF="">Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System
<A HREF="">The Original Arkansas
Genealogy Project,Civil...</A>
this site might link to the Edward R Gerdes Civil War Site
believe AOL users were having trouble connecting to these
sites. You might have to use a different company to access
these sites now.
Also check Cindi's Lists for more information on Civil War
<A HREF="">Arkansas Research -
Military Records</A>
the site above is Desmond Walls Allen's Site
she has an index of soldiers both Confederate
and Union and also the 1911 CSA Index
the site below is a very good site
<A HREF="">The American Civil War
