      _______________

      At some point after the 1940 US Federal Census was taken this family moved to Portsmouth, Virginia. At the time of that census the family was living on what now is old Highway 86 near the farm of Ada Belle James Moorefield, mother of Violet Bye Moorefield Smith. Jesse Siler Smith may have been Jesse Siler Smith, Jr. or II, as he apparently was named for his paternal grandfather Jesse Siler Smith (1821-1870).
