William Joel (Jay) Smith and wife Ellen came to Tennessee from Alabama, near Birmingham, in 1870 in an oxen drawn covered wagon. They brought his parents with them.
His father was blind. Because of being blind he was swindled out of some money he should have received from a railroad company that built a railroad across his land. William Joel (Jay) Smith and wife Ellen settled in McNairy County near Pleasant Site on the old Stump farm. Later they bought and moved to the McCrow farm. Then later they sold the farm to Jimmy and Deliah Jones who later sold the farm to Jim and Edith (Edie) Gardner. Orville and Lora Pearl Gardner now own it. (Note don’t know when this was written but the Gardners have both died. Lora Pearl in 2001 and Orville in 2001.) The old house has rotted down but a large pecan tree is still standing and still bears pecans. Roxie Smith Littlejohn said, when she was quite small, she remembered her mother planting the seed.
Later my grandfather (Jay Smith) bought a farm between the J. C. Gilbert farm and Rev.
John Jones farm near Pleasant Grove Church now known as the Gilbert Farm.
