I'm researching my Smith line and I know it's a long shot but perhaps we might have a connection. My gg grandfather was Thomas Wesley Smith. In one census he went by Wesley Smith. I can't find him prior to his marriage to my gg grandmother, Sarah Josephine Roberts. Thomas was born in 1832 in Illinois. His father was born in Indiana. His future father-in-law, Peter Henry Roberts, was a resident of Indiana and the story goes that he was on a trip to Illinois and met a widower with two children, Thomas Wesley Smith. He brought him home to Indiana for a visit where he met and and became engaged to Peter's daughter, Sarah J. Roberts (they married later in Coles, IL). Before they married Thomas wanted to try his hand in the gold fields of California and I did find him there in the 1850 census with a George Smith. I believe that he also had a brother named Newton Smith as they lived close together at times and they both used some unusually similar names in their families. Thomas and Sarah had the following children: Berlin A., Floyd Newton, Elledge R., James Washington, Phillip E., Ella May, Lucretia Jane (my g grandmother), and Carrie Nevada. They ended up in Fort Dodge, Iowa, where Lucretia met a young Swedish man named Charles H. Hanson (my g grandfather). Eventually the family moved to Caldwell, Idaho.
I had to at least give it a shot! Let me know if you have ever heard of any of this bunch!

Thanks for joining the Tull Group. Looking forward to reading about your Tull line.
your link to your web page did not work
looking at your Surnames of Interest, I would guess that you are descended from the Adam Poole Vandiver line... would that be correct?
Maybe you could fill us in a little on your 2nd and 3rd generation up?
