Andrew Farney Smyth, soldier and riverman, son of Andrew and Susannah Smyth of North Carolina, was born "on the road going through Tennessee" in 1817 and reared at his father's mill near Moulton, Alabama. He lived most of his life in Jasper County, Texas, where he was a planter, lumberman, and riverman. He left home in the autumn of 1835 with a party of other youths who journeyed overland to Texas with the intention of joining the celebrated Red Rovers, a volunteer company from Courtland, Alabama, formed to fight in the Texas Revolution.  Source: The Handbook of Texas
