Surname Saturday ~ Clark, Smith & Buster

Dica Elizabeth Clark was born on June 9, 1880 in Bethel, Tennessee.  On August 2, 1898 she was married to Zion Whitfield Smith, the son of George Washington and Evaline Amanda Howell Smith, who was born April 10, 1876 in Jemison, Chilton County Alabama.

Zion & Dicie had two children: Eveline Amanda (1900-1963) and Walter Eugene (1904-1944).  She is enumerated with Zion on the 1900 census in Dallas County Texas, where Eveline was born, and it is known that Walter was born in Jackson County, Oklahoma. Dicie passed on December 17, 1906 in Red Bluff, Arkansas.

On December 24, 1907 in Red Bluff, Zion married Grace Buster, daughter of Eliga Gipson & Mollie Sue Jordan Buster, with whom he fathered two more children.

Dicie Clark was my husband's great grandmother and is one of my many  brick walls.
She was born after the 1880 census and married by the 1900 census.  I would like to know more about her short life, and of course who her parents and siblings were. If anyone is researching this family, please contact me.
