was born July 1823 in Lawrence County, Tennessee.
Mary Polly's death date and place of burial is unknown
Father: Stephen Rowland
Mother: Sally McKew (McKeon?)(McHugh?)
Stephen Rowland and Sally McKew were married 12Oct1818 in Lawrence
County, Tennessee. (not verified)
Paternal Grandfather was George W Rowland and grandmother was
Martha Gibson

John and Mary Polly Rene Rowland Smith's known children were:
(1)MARGARET SMITH born 1846 in Newton County, Arkansas
No further information; married unknown
died unknown

(2)JAMES W SMITH born 3 Oct 1847 in Newton County, Arkansas.
Died 7 Jan 1898,Newton County, Arkansas,buried:Coppers Bluff Cemetery
in Newton County.
James married MARY TENNISON ,born Nov 1853. Married ca 1867, page 14,
Newton County, Arkansas Marriage Records
MARY TENNISON is probably the daughter of ALLEN TENNISON and
Studied Allen, John, Thomas and David Tennison families who were
living in Newton County,Arkansas on 1850 and 1860 census.
From the names and ages of their children, believe Mary Tennison to
be the daughter of Allen and Rachel Eastep Tennison. Allen Tennison
was born in Tennessee and believe Rachel Eastep to be born in
Missouri. It is said Rachel Eastep was of Indian blood.
Allen and Rachel Eastep Tennison were killed during the Civil War and
are buried under the Norton's barn. Brother John Tennison is also
buried there. Daughter Mary Tennison probably went to live with
another family and that is why we cannot find her on later census

John Tennison had a daughter Mary A Tennison, born 4July1854 in
Arkansas, who married Simon Solomon Sutton in 1871 in Parker County,

David Tennison had a daughter Mary, born 1848.
David's wife was Martha. They were in Newton County up to 1880.
Will be listing their genealogy in my 'Kinfolks Stories' soon.

Thomas and Sarah Caroline Liles Tennison had a daughter
Mary Martha Tennison , born 6 Nov 1851 in Arkansas who was on the
1860 census but was not on the 1870 census;
Mary Martha Tennison apparently died young.
I have Thomas Tennison's Civil War Pension Record and have a list of
their children and their exact birth dates.

Thomas J Tennison's bible page showing childrens birthdates

Allen T Tennison (son of Allen ) married Nancy Riggs and they had a
daughter Mary Tennison, born ca 1879 who married James Armstrong.

There was a Samuel Tennison who lived in Missouri but was in Newton
County during the Civil War and died there ca 1866 while in the Union
Army. His probate record is in Newton County, but he did not have a
daughter Mary that I am aware of.
I believe at this point that *MARY TENNISON was the daughter of

1860 Newton County, Arkansas Census
Allen Tennison 36
Rachel, 35 (Rachel Eastep)
Lucinda, 12
*Mary, 8
Allen, 5
James 1

My second conclusion is that James W Smith and Mary Tennison named
their firstborn son, John Allen Smith after James' father John Smith
and Mary's father Allen Tennison; thus the name John Allen Smith.

Allen Tennison and Rachel Eastep Tennison died ca 1862 during Civil
War time and are buried under Norton's Barn in Newton County,
Arkansas, White Township. They were killed by bushwhackers.

James W and Mary Tennison Smith did not show up on the 1870 or 1880
census records that I could find.
Mary Tennison Smith was on the 1900 Newton County, Arkansas census
as a widow with 9 living children.I cannot account for the 9th child.
Do not know when and where Mary Tennison Smith died.

is also buried in Dugan Cemetery.

1900 Newton County Census record stated that John and Mary had
13 children, with 3 living.
White Township, Visit #158.
Out of the 13 children born to John and Mary, I believe only
(8)SAVINA SMITH SMITH were only living children at the time of the
1900 Newton County census enumeration when
Mary Polly Rene Rowland Smith stated she had 13 children with 3 living.
