1830 LOWNDES COUNTY ALABAMA
Excerpt showing Ward Smith and surrounding households.
Found Ward SMITH household finally
in the 1830 Lowndes Co. census. Has got to be the same
Ward. (Listed as Waid in the index but it's Ward). But his household is
off. 4 sons rather than 3-4 daughters. Mistake made by census taker in
First a chronology of important dates for EVERAGES showing a proponderance in Lowndes Co., put together by Rex Everage:
1822, April 03, Jonathan Everage/Everidge born, his birth place said to
have been Lowndes County, Alabama, or that part of Montgomery County that
later went to from Lowndes.
1824, August 01, Frances Smith, daughter of Ward and Easter (Everidge)
Smith was born in the same part of Montgomery County, later Lowndes County.
1838, August 03, Martha Ann Everage (probable sister of Easter and
Jonathan Everage) married David Jay in Lowndes County.
1840 U. S. Census of Butler County, Alabama, lists the household of Ward
and Easter (Everidge) Smith.
1840 U. S. Census of Butler County, Alabama, lists the household of
Ichabud Everage (Bud Average), brother of Easter and Jonathan.
1840 U. S. Census of Butler County, Alabama, lists a household of Nancy
Etherige in the same neighborhood as those of Ward and Easter (Everidge)
Smith and Bud Average (Ichabud Everage). It consists of herself (aet. 30-40)
and two men, one aet. 20-30, and the other aet. 30-40.
1844, Frances Smith, daughter of Ward and Easter (Everidge) Smith,
married Robert Reuben Simmons in Lowndes County in 1844.
1850 U. S. Census of Lowndes County, Rocky Mount District (around present
Highland Home in northern Crenshaw County) lists the household of James
Everage, including his wife, eight children, and his father, James Everage,
1850 U. S. Census of Covington County lists the household of Ward and
Easter (Everidge) Smith including seven children.
1850 U. S. Census of Covington County lists the household of Ichabud
Everidge and his wife, including seven children.
1850 U. S. Census of Covington County lists the household of Simon
Williams, which includes Jonathan Everage.
1850 U. S. Census of Butler County lists the household of Eliza Evrage
[Everage], including her children Jesse and Margaret.
1853 a List of Overseers for Butler County Roads uses "John Everage's old
homeplace" near the county line as a point of reference. Since the road in
question ends at Big Patsaliga Creek, the home place was probably in eastern
Butler County, which in 1867 became Crenshaw County.

Samuel SMITH - - - - 1 / - - - 1
1 male 20 to 30, 1 female 15 to 20
NOTE: Perhaps a brother of Ward SMITH? The Samuel SMITH in the 1850 Coffee County census is 51 born in SC. Wife is Martha age 39. So the ages don't fit exactly but neither does Ward's household fit. There is a Samuel SMITH in the 1840 Butler Co. census on page 159, between Francis ROGERS and Thomas WRIGHT, with 2 boys 5 to 10, 1 male 40 to 50, 1 female under 5, 2 from 5 to 10, 1 from 10 to 15 and 1 from 30 to 40. He is living 4 households away from Nancy ETHERIDGE. A Samuel SMITH is in the 1830 Butler Co. census and is 30 to 40 with one 2 females under 5 and 1 20 to 30 so that is perhaps that Samuel. He's between a Josiah HILL and looks like a BOWEN. There are a number of Samuels in Lowndes by 1870. pg. 456, 217, 281, 283.
Ward SMITH 2 2 - - 1 / - - - - - 1
2 males under 5, 2 from 5 to 10, 1 male 20 to 30, 1 female 30 to 40
NOTE: His household is off. 4 sons rather than 3-4 daughters. Mistake made by census taker in listing. The children are Frances and Martha 5 to 10 and Elizabeth and Mary under 5.
