My father's name was Forby William Smith of Scottsville, Kentucky. He passed away in 1949 and I know nothing about his side of the family since I was only 4 yrs. old so I am just now starting a search. All I know is his mother's name was Mary Ayers and I believe his father's name was also William. My father was married first to Pearlie Gaines in 1908 in Scottsville, he was twenty yrs. old at the time so he must have been born in 1888. I vaguely remember my father speaking of having an Irish mother or grandmother- hence the name Ayres. Can you help me. I hope so. Christine.
