Larry, I am just a few years late in reading/finding your posting regarding Aaron Joseph Smith married to Georgia Emma Simms.
My husband descends from Aaron Joseph's son Erastus Frasier.
Aaron Joseph's parents were Aaron Smith (b 16 Jan 1817 Ga/d 21 July 1882 Bowden Co, GA)& Rhonda (Rody) Lewallen (b 1825 Ga/d 9 Mar 1894 Bowden Co, GA); married 22 July 1841 also in GA.
His parents were Richard W Smith (B 1790/D 1886) and Nancy Smith(B1795/d 1853)married June 1813 in Frankin Co GA
Rody Lewallen parents were Worthy Lewallen (B 1800/D 1880s) and Elizabeth Burt (b 1806)
Georgia Emma Simms' parents were F Marion Simms (B1835 GA) and Mary Hulda Maiden Name Unknown (B1837 GA)
This is just a brief rundown of the info. Didn't know if you had already found out this info

Aaron Smith (1812-1882)was born in Franklin Co., GA in 1812. Married Rhoda Lewallen (1824-1894) on July 22, 1841 in Carroll County, GA. Had the following children: Henry Gains Smith; Gabriel Smith; Caroline Matilda Smith (b. 1848); Robert Greer Smith; Richard Smith; Bennet A. Smith; Nancy E. Smith; May Josephene Smith; Philda Missouri Smith; Aaron Joseph Smith (1864-1934) who married Georgia A. Sims Oct. 30, 1882; Ransom M. Smith and Evaline Sarah Smith. They lived in Carroll County until about 1887 when they moved to Cullman County. I have most of the children of these children with birth dates. Aaron and Rhoda Smith were members of the Poplar Spring Primitive Baptist Church which is about 4.5 miles north of Bowden, Georgia in Carroll Co.

Gabriel Smith married my relative Angelina T. Cooke about 1865 in Carroll County.

Worthy is the son of Joseph C. Lewallen, as per Dennis Lewallen book "where all the Georgia Lewallen ascend from"
