The Smith reunion will be held at the Ephesus Primitive The Smith reunion will be on April 21, 2012 in Jefferson Co, Mississippi on the
Dennis Cross Road, off of Hwy 28, not far from where Johnnie Harold lives.
Directions to the Smith Reunion coming from Natchez, MS. There are no motels close to the Smith reunion, you will have to stay in Port Gibson or Natchez. I recommend Natchez. You cross the river at Natchez on Highway 84 and intersect Highway 61 north at the hospital. Travel north on Highway 61 for about 18 or so miles to Fayette, then turn right on Highway 33 for one mile, then left on Highway 28 continuing east about 11 miles. Turn left on Dillon Road then in about 4 miles you will come to Ephesus Primitive Baptist Church and cemetery at the intersection of Dillon and Ephesus Road. You will find several relatives in the Ephesus Cemetery across the road and a nearby cemetery (don't know the name, someone at the reunion knows), but Dan Smith is buried in the nearby cemetery, brother of James Monroe. About 7 miles east on Highway 28 is the Union Church Cemetery where James Monroe (Jim) Smith is buried with a Confederate stone, it stands upright about 3 or 4 feet high.
