      Possible census entry:

      Alexander Smiley 42 farmer, all b. VA, r.e. value 3000
      John W. 3
      Walter 22 farmer
      Hugh Buchanan 17 farmer
      Margaret D. Smily 32
      Anna E. Hemp 38
      -- maybe Margaret D. is Devisa; there are no other Alexander Smileys in VA with wives with better names, and her age is about right (should be 33)
