About Andrew Smith, Jr.


Andy Smith (sometimes called Andrew) married in North Carolina, and he and his bride, with only a cart and pony and such supplies as they would need on the trip started west. They crossed Pearl River just below Jackson Mississippi, on a large raft made of cane that the Indians helped him to make. He then came on south and stopped near what is now Poplarville. He had five sons and one daughter - one son Jeptha, went to Texas, "Poplar" Jim the other son and daughter stayed in Pearl River County and have many descendants. One of these sons, Billy "Juckers" Smith, had twenty-six children by two wives. With the exception of one son who died in infancy the thers have all lived to ripe old ages - several living to be 80 or 90 years of age. They have always been law abiding citizens and attribute their unusual good health and long lives to the fact that they were taught to keep God's Commandment.
