102 (There is a family history that Francis Smith wasn't really a Smith at all, but had changed his name and left Virginia over a dispute with his Episcopal minister father. DNA donor volunteer has been identified and a 37 STR kit shipped). Rumors are that his father was born in Scotland, that the family name was originally "Cruickshanks" and that Francis was a 'black sheep' who did not wish to be traced back to his father.) He said himself it wasn’t his real name. May have been Crookshanks).  Smith, Francis (I67857)

105 634 ppg. Whole section just on Captain Dudley Barksdale. Two references for you for S.A.R, from Charlotte County, Virginia. County Court order books show he was captain of militia as early as Aug 1777. (Char. Co.,O.B.IV, p99. (v. also pp.100,104,138,167,174,214)). In Feb 1782 minutes show full name as Capt. Dudley Barksdale, and in Aug 1782. (Ibid.,V, p44. (Also referred to on pp 31,37,65,92).) Good luck on that. Father: Thomas Henry Barksdale (about 1715 Tidewater Counties - 1788 Henry Co). Mother: Probably Judith Dudley Claiborne. Dudley b. about 1736 probably a Tidewater County. d. 1819 Halifax Co. m. Lucy Coleman, before 1772. Her father was Daniel Coleman, who mentions in his will, Nov 23, 1772, sons James, Daniel, Robert, Benjamin, William and Joseph, and daughters Lucy Barksdale and Elizabeth Allen. Then wife, Patience Coleman. Second marriage for Dudley to Elizabeth Wimbush, 6 Feb 1786 Charlotte Co. He and second wife were living at the home of half-brother Beverly Barksdale, Halifax Co., first Brooklyn homeplace on Brooklyn Road located one mile west of later Brooklyn home (both are still standing). No will, so Beverly Barksdale administered his estate. Dudley dies 1819, Beverly died 1822, and Elizabeth Wimbush died before 1823. 1784 census for Char. Co shows him head of household with nine whites, indicates himself, wife Lucy, and seven children. No children with Wimbush. Capt John does not know all children, but can list four. 1. Lucy Barksdale. m. 25 Oct 1786, Char. Co. Charles Carter. 2. William O. Barksdale b about 1771, m. 16 Nov 1791 widow Nancy Harrison. Daniel Barksdale is surety on this, placing Daniel in Char. Co., as late as this date of bond. (Char. Co., M.B. I, p. 157). 3. Daniel Barksdale, b. 23 Jan 1773. d. 28 Nov 1844 Todd Co, Ky. m. 27 Jan 1800 Polly Watson in Prince Edward Co. 4. Daughter (?) Barksdale m. George Smith. This Smith, Wilson Co, Tenn., obtains power of attorney, 17 Mar 1821 to Samuel Smith, Halifax Co., to attend to the prosecution of suit in Superior Court of Law, Halifax, against Beverly Barksdale, for recovery of money from estate of Dudley, and to represent in the division of slaves. Also, Daniel, on 12 July 1824, in Todd Co.,executes power of attorney to Daniel Coleman,(probably Lucy's brother, not nephew), Pittsylvania Co, Va., for same purpose. But in 1824, Berryman Green is administer of estate for Dudley. References for this in Virginia is (Hal. Co.,D.B. XXXIII p.122). And if this states Daniel is son of Dudley, and that gives him interest in estate, then you have your link. Book speculates on other kin. Widow of William Hudson Barksdale said Polly Watson was her husband's aunt. Daniel and Polly Watson Barksdale are buried in an old burying ground located on state line between Todd Co. and Montgomery Co., Tenn. Gravestones are marked with dates of birth and death. Thomas F. Barksdale witness in Todd Co. court order for Daniel, to Daniel Coleman, may have been Daniel's son. Nathaniel may have been another. He m. 19 Apr 1840 Margaret Henderson.

108 Canadian Censuses Marriage Certificate (Marie Schmidt to Otto Dittfach) The story of Marie Schmidt's illegitimate child is quite interesting. An affair with a reported Danish "nobleman" out of wedlock, Marie refused to abort the child, then travelled by ship from Europe to Argentina to have the baby. It is unknown who the father was, or why she travelled so far while pregnant. She then travelled to New York a couple years later with her baby, and married an Otto Dittfach (short-lived marriage). Subsequently, moved to Ontario and gave Otto the boot. Dittfach, Mary (I68423)
109 Cornelius SMITH WAS b. 23 Dec 1783 on Swearing Creek, Jersey Settlement, North Carolina Colony, d. 10 Oct 1837 in Brazoria Co., Texas Republic; m. 1 Jan 1803 Elizabeth 'Betsy' ROBERTS b. 1785 in Kentucky Co. (Pulaski Co. aft 10 Dec 1798), Virginia, d. 31 Aug 1859 in Brazoria Co., Texas.

Cornelius took his growing family from Tennessee to the new Republic of Mexico in 1824 (it had just achieved independence from Spain) in response to a free-land offer by Stephen Austin. He had cajoled the new government of Mexico to increase their population by granting land to US settlers in the area of Coahuila Y Tejas (later Texas) and it gained the appellation of "Austin's 300", for the number of settlers (actually more like 280-some).

On April 20, 1824, Cornelius SMITH, along with his father-in-law William ROBERTS and a group of colonists were at the home of James Britton 'Brit' BAILEY when Josiah H. BELL read the Constitution of 1824 and heard their oath of loyalty to the Mexican government.

Cornelius? Mexican land grant of 1 league and 1 labor (4,605.5 acres) was dated August 7, 1824 and was approved by Estevan F. AUSTIN (Stephen F. AUSTIN) August 10, 1824 after it was surveyed. The actual acreage was 4,587.096 acres. Cornelius? father-in-law, William ROBERTS, was also an 'Old 300' colonist. William?s land adjoined Cornelius? on its southern boundary. William sold half of his 5,312.13 acres to his son, Andrew (28 Dec, 1824), and the other half to his son-in-law, Cornelius (27 Dec 1824), for $150.00. This brought Cornelius? land holdings to about 7,243 acres.

NOTE: By Mexican law, each family received one league 4,428 acres of pasture land and one labor 177 acres of irrigable farm land. They paid $190 in fees to the state, the land commissioner, the surveyor, and for writing the deed about four cents per acre! Austin's plan to rebuild the family fortune was thwarted by laws that prohibited the empresario from charging fees. His reward was 23,000 acres of land as a "premium" for each 100 families he settled. Austin located most of his premium land for his first contract along the Brazos River in Brazoria County.

Side Served: Confederacy
State Served: Georgia
Service Record: Enlisted as a Private on 31 August 1861.
Enlisted in Company B, 61st Infantry Regiment Georgia on 31 Aug 1861.
Received a disability discharge from Company B, 61st Infantry Regiment Georgia on 8 Jan 1863.

61st Infantry Regiment [also called 26th Regiment] was assembled at Charleston, South Carolina, in May, 1862. It was formed by using the 7th Georgia Battalion as its nucleus. The men were from the counties of Irwin, Tattnall, Brooks, Bulloch, Montgomery, Bibb, Quitman, and Wilkes. Ordered north in June, the unit arrived at Petersburg, Virginia, with 1,000 officers and men. During the war it was brigaded under Generals Lawton, John B. Gordon, and C.A. Evans, Army of Northern Virginia. It participated in many conflicts from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor, went with Early to the Shenandoah Valley, then fought in numerous engagements around Appomattox. This regiment sustained 36 casualties at Gaines' Mill, 63 at Second Manassas, 114 at Sharpsburg, and 100 at Fredericksburg. It lost thirty-seven percent of the 288 at Gettysburg and sixty-five percent of 150 at Monocacy. The 61st surrendered with no officers and 81 men, of which only 49 were armed. Its commanders were Colonel John H. Lamar; Lieutenant Colonels Charles W. McArthur and James Y. McDuffie; and Majors Peter Brenan, Archibald P. MacRae, Henry Tillman, and James D. Van Valkenburg.

123 His descendant,Stephen Learned (generation 11) believes that Joshua was fathered by a Smith male, given Stephen's Y markers. Some similar Smith Y markers are observed in New York or mid-Atlantic area, not New England. Hence the conclusion that Joshua was fathered by a Smith male, plus the fact that third cousin Gary Learned has same Y markers. Joshua married Harriet Knight in Smyrna in 1848. Harriet was born in Philipston, MA., in 1808. She was three months pregnant at the time of marriage and 16 years older than Joshua. They moved to Winterset, IA., 1854. The marriage broke up c.1858-1860. Joshua lived in Centropolis Township, Franklin County, Kansas in 1860. Harriet lived in Athol, MA in 1860.  Learned, Joshua (I6650)

125 Hulbert Bateman Smith was born on November 02, 1855, in Brasher Iron Works, St. Lawrence, New York and died on February 20, 1911, in New York, at the age of 56. Hulbert married Ella C. Orton, daughter of Joel and Elizabeth Orton. Ella was born in December 1856 in New York and died on May 18, 1882, at the age of 25 years 6 months. Ella is buried in Moira Cemetery, Moira, Franklin, New York. In 1880 Hulbert and Ella are living in Moira, Franklin, New York. Hulbert is a farmer.

After Ella?s death, Hulbert married Sarah Elizabeth LaFleur, daughter of Frank LaFleur and Amelia Duquette, in New York, in 1886. Sarah was born in October 1865 in South Bombay, Franklin, New York and died in 1906 in Moira, Franklin, New York at the age of 40. Sarah?s father was born in Canada ?French? and her mother was born in the New York. Hulbert and Sarah are buried in Moira Cemetery, Moira, Franklin, New York.

In 1900 Hulbert Smith was living next door to his parents Daniel and Susan Smith in Moira, Franklin Co., New York. He was working as a day laborer. He owned his home. Hulbert completed the 6th Grade.

In 1910 Hulbert B. Smith is living in Moira, Franklin, New York. He is a widow. Hulbert is a farmer. Living with him are his sons Arthur (13) and Howard Smith (6). Also living with him are John Gavey (8), James Gavey (6), and Harold Gavey (4).

In 1913 Frank and Helen are living at 15 Deport Street, Potsdam. Frank is working at a laborer. George is working as a driver and Arthur is working as a laborer and both live at 6 Waverly Street, Potsdam. By 1915 George is married to Lena Clough. Arthur and Howard are living with them at 107 Market Street, Potsdam. George is working as a laborer in a laundry and Arthur is working as a brush maker. Howard is in school. The 1919 Potsdam Directory has Frank and Helen living at 16 Clinton Street and Frank is working as a laborer. George (working as a driver), Howard (a student), and Arthur all live at 109 Market Street, Potsdam, New York.

127 I was able to date back only to James M Smith (B: 3 Aug 1832, D: 3 Sep 1896). James was a blacksmith and had a shop in Burlington, Mineral county, West Virginia. The current post office of the town stands where his shop once was.  Family F18074
128 In 1815 he was living in Cotaco Co(now Morgan)AL. His will was probated 16 Sep 1854 and lists children and spouses, among them Christopher, Elizabeth, Pleasant, Tallitha, Joseph, Sarah,Polly, and Phereby.  Rowland, Robert (I53572)
129 In a rootsweb listing, "Rogers/jacobs/Sharp/Hedrick and More" Hank Rogers wrote "I know John was the brother of Ann Smith Wood and her father is Samuel Smith who was of Halifax Co. in 1765. The Samuel listed there had wife Grissel..." He also stated that "the children listed under Samuel Smith and Grissel Locker didn't seem to associate with any of the these blackwater (sic) river families". - Kent Smith Smith, John (I1535)
130 In Rebecca Dougherty Hyatt's booklet, *The Founder of Adams Name in Watauga County, NC* there is an article about George SMITH. In this article it states, *George SMITH was the son of Robert and Polly SMITH of Culpepper County, VA and the Grandfather of Betsy FLANNERY Adams.* In *The Heritage of Watauga County, Vol. 2*, it says George SMITH had a son named Abner.  
Smith, George (I27102)
131 it looks like his father was George Washington Smith born in 1785 in Va or NC and died in 1859 in Polk co Ga and his mother was Mary Ann Tyner born in 1780 and died in I believe 1791 in Alabama. I am still searching for more records to prove this but I am fairly sure they were his parents.  Smith, David (I18496)
132 James Sterling Smith served in the "3rd Missouri Infantry, CSA, ... mustered into Confederate service from units of the Missouri State Guard, near Springfield, Mo. in January 1862. The Missouri State Guard had served with distinction at the battles of Boonville, Lexington, Wilson's Creek and others".

As the 3rd Missouri Infantry in Confederate service, the unit fought at the battle of Pea Ridge and was instrumental in saving the Confederate Army from total destruction by Federal forces. In 1862, the 3rd Missouri Infantry was transferred east of the Mississippi along with other Missouri units to fight (for the next three years) separated from their homes and their state. While serving east of the Mississippi, the 3rd Missouri and other Missouri units formed the Confederate Missouri Brigade. The Missouri Brigade participated in the battles of Iuka, Corinth, Champion's Hill and the siege of Vicksburg during 1862 and 1863.

1864 was a difficult year for the Army of Tennessee and the Missouri Brigade. The hard fought battles of the Atlanta Campaign, Alltoona and finally the disastrous Battle of Franklin Tennessee in November 1864, nearly destroyed the 3rd Missouri and Missouri Brigade. At Franklin, Tennessee alone the Brigade suffered over 60% casualties in a little over one hour of combat.

1865 proved to be no better for the 3rd Missouri Infantry. Sent to the defense of Mobile, Alabama, the Missouri Brigade manned the defense of Ft. Blakeley. As they awaited the largest Federal assault of the war, the Missouri Brigade mustered only 400 survivors of the 4000 men who had crossed the Mississippi River three years earlier. Powerless to stop the Federal onslaught on April 9, 1865, the once proud 3rd Missouri with the Missouri Brigade was overrun. Those who managed to escape soldiered on for another month, finally surrendering in late May of 1865.
Smith, James Sterling (I21892)
133 Lawrence Anderson Smith was born at Curdsville on February 21, 1842. All his life he was known by his initials, L.A. Smith. Nineteen years old when the Civil War broke out, he enlisted in Company B of the 25th Virginia Battalion. (This was a Richmond unit, so perhaps he was in Richmond in the spring of 1861.) He served in this battalion throughout the entire war. On March 13, 1864, when he ws probably home on leave, he married Paulina Pool. She was 15 years old, an orphan, and came from Lunenburg County 25 miles south of Curdsville. I don't know how they met. When Lee surrendered, L.A. could easily walk home in a day from Appomattox to Curdsville. After the war he returned to Buckingham, but in the late 1870s he bought a farm at Ca Ira in central Cumberland County. Ca Ira is on the Willis River four miles west of Cumberland Courthouse: a lovely spot in the shadow of Willis Mountain. L.A. and Paulina had nine children, although one died at birth. Then Paulina died, on December 5, 1884. L.A. took a second wife, Alice Gilbert, and had nine more children with her -- 18 in all. I have been able to identify 14 of them. Ten of them were still living at home in 1900. Sometime before 1920 Alice died and L.A. sold the farm and moved to Farmville, where he lived with is son Morris. L.A. Smith died in Farmville on April 10, 1925. He is buried at Grace Episcopal Church in Ca Ira.

134 Lawrence Smith, the eldest son of Constantine Smith, was born about 1755, so he was only 15 when his father gave him Bowker Smith's former land in Goochland County. After Constantine became a minister and (apparently) sold the plantation in King and Queen, Lawrence left for Goochland. But he stayed only a short time, selling the land on Lickinghole Creek and moving on across the James River to Cumberland County. He found a wife there, Catherine Montague, a daughter of Thomas Montague. Thomas had moved with his family a few years earlier from Middlesex County on the lower Rappahannock to the area of Cartersville, on the south bank of the James in Cumberland. Lawrence and Catherine moved a few miles to the southwest and established a farm about halfway between Cartersville and Cumberland Courthouse. They had at least seven children and lived on their farm until both died in 1834.

142 Starke Smith was the youngest of the four surviving sons of Lawrence Smith; he was born about 1798, according to census data. Since he could not expect to inherit any land, he decided to justify the family name by becoming a blacksmith. He established his shop in the vicinity of Curdsville, in southern Buckingham County (now on US 15), about 25 miles southwest of his father's farm. His wife's name was Mary, but I don't know her last name. The 1850 census lists five of their children; there might have been one or two others who had left home by that time. Starke was still living in Buckingham County at the time of the 1870 census; I don't know exactly when he died.

143 This group of Smith families had homes on Swearing Creek, part of the Jersey Settlement that is today's Lexington, Davidson Co. After Andrew's death Sarah married Thomas GADBERRY II, of Salisbury, Rowan Co., 04 May 1805 in Rowan Co. and had five more children, all in Barren Co., Kentucky. I can provide a PDF file of descent from English immigrant Andrew SMITH c.1677. ---- Incidentally, Jersey Settlement did take its name from the two dozen or so West New Jersey Colony families who re-settled there in the mid-1700s, some removing from an earlier settling in Virginia Colony, and others coming down directly from New Jersey Colony in response to family reports. Being on the Great Wagon Road from Pennsylvania Colony to Georgia, it was a growing community that attracted many settlers from elsewhere as well. Family F14537

147 William Smith, born after 1600, died after Jan. 1663/4 and some time before 1670; married Magdalen ___, who married second, by 1670, Capt. Richard Olmstead of Norwalk, Conn.
He was a magistrate at Weymouth, Mass., 1638-43, and was of Rehoboth, Mass., about 1643-51. He settled in Huntington, Long island., where house lots were granted to "William Smith and his son Nehemiah Smith," 11 January 1663/4. Her did not long survive that date, for on 6 September 1670 Magdalen Olmstead of Norwalk, late wife of William Smith of Jamaica, deceased, gave her housing in Jamaica to her sons Wait Smith and Samuel; and Samuel Smith assigned his share to "my brother Wait Smith." The will of Richard Olmstead, made 30 September 1684, gave to Samuel Smith "the bed that was my last wife's."
At Huntington in 1684, Thomas Smith, Joseph Smith, Nehemiah Smith and Wait Smith confirmed land there as children of William Smith now deceased, formerly of Huntington; Daniel Denton and Joseph Smith, Jr., witnessed.
Benjamin Smith of Milford, Conn., at his first marriage there in 1660, was described as son of William Smith of Huntington. It will be noted that Benjamin named sons Samuel, Joseph and Nehemiah; and that his brother Thomas named a son Benjamin.
Thomas Smith, Sr., of Jamaica, in his will in 1689 called himself 62 or 63 years old and referred to Nehemiah Smith as his brother.
Joseph Smith is mentioned in Huntington records, for he took inventory there in 1661, and in 1663 reference is made to a lot "Formerly Joseph Smith's." He appears in Jamaica records, 14 February 1663, and was Townsman there, 22 December 1663. On 14 January 1714, Joseph Smith, Sr., of Jamaica, made an agreement with Nathan, Wait and Caleb Smith of Jamaica, to divide a lot, and Joseph was to have the west side and the other three the east side; in the contemporary index this is called "An Agreement between Joseph Smith and ye sons of Wait Smith." Beneath the agreement is entered a release from Magdalen Smith of Jamaica, stating that "my husband William Smith resigned with her consent the land "that my husband William Smith and my son Joseph Smith bought of Henry Whitney unto my son Joseph Smith afore said." This release was doubtless given before 1670, since Magdalen was still named Smith, and by 1670 she was "Olmstead" and she had died before Olmstead made his will in 1684.
In 1668 Winthrop's Medical Journal mentions Ruth wife of Joseph Smith of Jamaica and calls him brother of "Goody" Higby. Nehemiah Smith called John Carpenter his cousin (nephew), making it likely that Hannah, wife of John2 Carpenter, was daughter of William Smith.
