From: http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:1233092&id=I0113 (by Juanita Johnson: Family history (Carol Webb's mother states) that James' father E. Smallwood was murdered in KY. E was a land-owner in KY and was murdered and robbed of money he was carrying to pay his employees. James was a teenager at that time and he took over the task of providing for the family Administrator's BOND: Mary M Smallwood as Principal, and Amos Wolf and Alfred Barter as securities, are held and firmly bound unto the state of MO, in the sum of One Thousand dollars, for the payment of which we do hereby bindourselves, our heirs, executors and administrators, firmly by those present. Stated at Nevada, MO this 28th day of October, 1878. OATH: Mary M Smallwood adminstratrix of the estate of Elisha Smallwood deceased, being duly sworn, say that the said ELISHA SMALLWOOD died intestate and without leaving a will, at Cross Hollows ARK Oct 7th 1878, leaving as his heirs:
John W Smallwood, Mary Marinda (?) Smallwood, James Smallwood, Anna A Smallwood, Emma E Smallwood, Clara E Smallwood his children and Mary M Smallwood his widow and that she will make a perfect inventory of, and faithfully administer all the Estate of the said Elisha Smallwood and pay the debts, and account for and pay allassets., Signed October 28, 1879. Inventory of personal property, chattels, Guardian and Curator's Bond: Mary M Smallwood and Amos Wolf and Alfred Barter as securities are held and bound unto the State of MO for the use of Mary M Smallwood; James Smallwood; Emma A Smallwood and Clara E Smallwood and Annie E Smallwood in the sum of five hundred dollars, for the payment of which we bind ourselves, our heirs, assigns, executors and administrators.

1878 at Vernon Co., MO: 1 second hand reaper/mower $25.00. 1 2-horse walking cultivator $12.00; 1 Roan Horse $20.00. 6 Cows, each $12.00. 1 Old Wagon $20.00. 24 Head of fat Hogs $3.50 each. 12 Small Hogs $6.00. 1 Breaking Plow $4.00. Old Harrow $2.00. There is no mention of Nancy Jane Smallwood, my great grandmother. I am assuming the reason was she was not a minor child. ??? The first time they name the children, John is listed; but not the second time listed. ??? What was Elisha doing in Arkansas? Was the family living there?? At this moment I remember written somewhere that Mary Smallwood tried to get a pension from Elisha military service; but was denied. Lady at the library stated many were denied pensions if they had not served 3 years.
