    I did a search on the 1850 census for Daniel Smothers in KY, and it only brought up the following
    The 1850 Census for Marion Co Dist 2 Shows:

    Daniel Smothers 70 b NC
    Sally 65 b VA
    Elmira Barns 4 b KY
    David Barns 2 b KY
    Richard Smothers 11 b KY
    Jane Barns 26 b KY

    Right below them is:

    Daniel Smothers Jr 31
    Margaret 35
    Mary J 7
    Margaret E 5
    John 4
    James 2
    Samuel T 1
    all born KY

    The page ahead of this shows the following which I would certainly investigate:

    John Smothers 44 or 66
    James 24
    Nancy 16
    Thomas 15
    Isaac 8
    Sally 6
    Betsy 3
    All born KY

    2 households ahead of the above are:

    Washington Moore 37
    Elizabeth 37
    William 11
    Mary Jane 8
    Robert 6
    Catherine 5
    John 3
    George T 10 mos
    All born KY

    There are only 11 Households with the surname of Moore in Marion Co for the 1850 census.

    1860 KY Marion Co shows Sallie aged 70 with a Richard aged 23 in her household, and households near her are William age 40 and family, and Stephen age 44 and family.
    There are several others in Marion Co as well.

    1870 KY Hardin Co Meeting Creek shows the following:
    John Smothers 47
    Elizabeth Smothers 43
    James 16
    Sarah 12
    Mary E 10
    Margaret 60 Widow
    Samuel 21
    Amanda 19
    Christina 16

    The 1860 Census for the above household does not have Margaret in it, but does have another child John aged 7 who must have died before 1870.
    I think I would check out the other families Moore and Smothers to see if I could locate her on the 1860 census.
    Hope this helps you some.

    joenote: need to review death info.... see census 1870 Hardin CO..... there is conflicting information on if he was alive for the 1880 census.... in 1870 margaret is in the house of John Smothers....and is listed as a widow.
