I'm going to add the birth papers for reference purposes. I would like everyone to please ask the eldest person or the person most knowledgeable on our family history to see if the names William Robert Smikle and Eleanor "Ellen" Thomas are familiar.

Please also ask about the names of the additional siblings, as someone may remember hearing these names before.

I was also told by Wilbert Smikle, grandson of Robert Smikle, that he has an aunt named Ellen, who could have been named after Robert William Smikle's wife.

Please try and help as much as you can to solve this mystery. This will take our Smikle tree back another generation!

Thank you greatly!!
