I am seeking information on William Henry Smith born 1866 in South Carolina.

+2 votes
William Henry (Napier?) Smith is my ggrandfather. I have found his death certificate noting he was born in 1866 in South Carolina and died in Winston-Salem, NC in 1926 but buried back in Florence, SC. The 1910 census noted that he,  his wife Maggie (Margaret Purvis) and children (George Norwood, my grandfather, and Vira) and widowed mother Martha (Purvis?) Smith were living in James Crossroads, SC near Florence. His father was noted as Henry Smith.  Any information on any of my tree or grandparents would be appreciated.
