Who was this Colonel James Smith? If he was important, then why wasn't he included in this account? There was an entry for James Smith of Jackson Co., AL who was listed on the 1840 Pensioners Census and living with James P Smith (p. 148). But this entry had no mention of him being a Colonel. Is this the same person?
