Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Leslie MITCHELL Smith. I have been working on family history research on my husband's lines since 1999. I enjoy putting all of the "puzzles" together.

I am currently working on putting all of my husband's family onto FindaGrave. If you have any additions and/or corrections, please feel free to contact me. I also have my files posted on

I have been helped by so many others over the years that I am very willing to help gather information for other researchers. I do still have children at home, so I try to do my research while they are in school. So, please be patient with me :o)

Reuben Arnold Claunch #61769683
Hello Leslie, I noticed that you have the Claunch name in your cemetery list. Also that you have been researching your family a long time. I'm hoping that you can maybe help me. I know that we Claunches apparently all started in the USA with Hieronymus Glantz in 1732. I also noticed that you have listed in your cemeteries, Reuben Arnold Claunch. He was the brother to my great-great grandfather, Wiley T. Claunch #5476245. And I believe their father was Madison Love Clonch who was born in Grainger co.,Tn, abt. 1791 and died in St Clair co.,Al. abt.1852. My question is do you have any idea how to connect these men to our ancestor, Hieronymus? Any names would help.
Thanks Nanette

RE: Lincoln Memorial Park
I just checked the paper and found an obit for Mary and a funeral notice for William "Sam" Slayton.
They download as full pages of the paper in pdf format and the obit and/or funeral notice are on the pages.
I can email these to you if you want them.

Addie Claunch Nugent #8604752
I noticed that you maintain this memorial. I realize this is just a shot in the dark but you mention that you are working on your husbands family. I was hoping that Addie might be a part of his family that your working on. She was a sister to my great grandfather, Perry Francis Claunch. My daddy spent several years before his death in 2007 attempting to find the connection to Heironmus Glantz(the original Claunch in America) and our family. And since then I have been trying to do the same. Would you by any chance know the connection or maybe know who to point me to?

Photo requests for St. Pats, Bay City
I was unable to fill these requests because the office lady is very unhelpful about locating graves. She hates a list so I have found it easiest for the individual who is requesting the photo to find out the location. I have an index of existing tombstones that some nice ladies did for the Bay County GENWEB but that's for the old St. Pats where most burials are from the early 1900s. Sorry!

RE: Hannah Colcord @ Topeka Cemetery
The are three Colcords buried at Topeka Cemetery, all in section 60 lot 3

Doan Colcord in lot 3, grave N3.

Hannah Colcord in lot 3, space S3, Oct 7, 1806-Feb 12, 1901

Marion G Colcord, also in grave S3 (there must have only been two grave locations in that lot) Aug 18, 1845-Oct 15, 1903. is the cemetery's on-line database that lists all grave information.

hope that helps

RE: Archibald Elza Hankins & Leonard Niles Hankins
Then it is nice to meet you Leslie. I think that would make us 2nd cousins? Alma Hankins Tait was my paternal grandmother....which sibling of Archibald's was your husband's grandparent?

Archibald Elza Hankins & Leonard Niles Hankins

Are you related to these 2 men? If not, would you please consider transferring their memorials to me? Archibald (Find A Grave #37666568) is my great grandfather & Leonard (linked to him) is my great uncle. Archibald's daughter, Alma, was my paternal grandmother.

Thank you.
