In 1870, at the age of 16 Francis Marion Smith, my 2x great grandfather, was living with his sister, Dorcas (Smith) Dazey in Milford, Iroquois, Illinois. The story goes that his parents died when he was young and he was raised by a sister. I believe he may have been raised by two sisters, since in a previous post I showed him living with sister, Martha in 1860.
