Lived near Hezekiah and Elisha Smallwood in Missouri

David Smallwood was the son of Bean (Bayne) Smallwood and Elizabeth Romine of Charles Co., MD and Bath Co., KY.  David died in Adair Co., Missouri, just south of Schuyler Co. where Hezekiah Smallwood and his wife Elizabeth Broughton lived in 1850.  David was also found in a book about Missouri (Shelby Co., Missouri).  He apparently lived there for a short time in about 1831.  Shelby is very close to Adair Co.  Also in Shelby Co., Missouri was a W. B. Broughton who opened a store at his cabin in 1835 in the town of Oakdale.  This is probably William B. Broughton who was just two counties south of there in 1840 in Chariton County.  Next to him was a Bedy or Body Akers (could be Benj.?).  The Akers family was allied with the Smallwood family.  Sarah Akers married Samuel Smallwood, son of William Smallwood and Sarah Philpot (?).  Their son Wesley Smallwood was in Hancock, Illinois, next to Clark/Lewis Co., Missouri, in 1860. 

In 1850 William B. Broughton was in Shelby Co., MO.  He was born c1793 in Maryland and his apparent wife Mary was born c1798 in Kentucky.  I have been unable to identify him.  It is not known if he was related to Elizabeth Broughton.  If you have information about him please contact Sandra by email.

It's possible that William B. Broughton was the Wm. Broughton who was in Clay County, KY in 1810, age 16-26, along with Elijah Smallwood.  Next to William was a Joe or Job Broughton, age 45+.  David Smallwood was in Lewis Co., MO in 1840 and in Adair, MO by 1850.  Lewis Co, MO is just south of Clark Co., MO where Elisha Smallwood and his wife Mary Margaret Moore lived.

Missouri History Encyclopedia, 1901 - Shelby County
In the Spring of 1831 a man named Norton from Monroe County, built a cabin on Black Creek in what is now Shelby County. David Smallwood, a few months later, settled near Norton's cabin. Neither Norton or Smallwood remained long in the county. In 1834 the first store in the county was opened by W. B. Broughton at his cabin, which stood on the present site of of the hamlet of Oakdale.
