It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

    Sm7 Jeanette Smiley



    Jeanette Smiley was possibly the daughter John Smylie of Argyle.
    Jeanette Smiley b c 1750 ?Kilsyth, Stirlingshire, Scotland
    m Colonel Thomas Prather Pr7

    Died:

    We see below that James Smylie b 1745 Kilsyth had a daughter name Jeannet. As daughters are often named after their aunts, there is a likelihood

    The name Smiley is rather seldom and seems to be of the same paternal line, although the different geographical locations in the US indicate that there was more than one immigrant of that name, since movements between New England and Maryland and Virginia were fairly seldom.
    Pr6-1 William Prather b 1769
    Pr6Thomas Smiley Prather III, Born 1770, Frederick County, Maryland. (from Raymond Friend's tree)
    The names Smiley and Smyley in Ireland were introduced by settlers who arrived from Scotland during the seventeenth century. The main settlement point was in the Province of Ulster and in County Tyrone in particular, where the majority of descendants can still be found. Smylie is another variant
