Need help locating James Evans Smith and his wife Lucy Gillian Page

+6 votes

Their daughter is Nora Janie Smith who married Rev Rufus Franklin Huneycutt. I got their names from Nora's death certificate, but I can't find any other information. This is the last big gap in my family tree. Here is the death certificate.

"North Carolina Deaths, 1931-1994," database, FamilySearch ( : accessed 15 February 2016), Nora Janie Smith Huneycutt, 18 Aug 1943; citing Winston-Salem, Forsyth, North Carolina, fn 2441 cn 185, State Department of Archives and History, Raleigh; FHL microfilm 1,943,231.

I added a couple of census entries to Lucy's profile and a couple other kids marriage records to James' profile.  In 1870, Lucy was living with her parents, Sion and Nancy Page.  

Found James in 1850 & 1860 census.  He was called Evan.

There are more estate files - dispute and land auction for James Smith ? father or son, and an E J Smith, on familysearch, can't tell if they are related. Include above surnames Honeycutt, Bryant, Hale.
