"The John Smith of Pianketank who died in 1721, deserves a somewhat fuller notice than has been vouchsafed him. In Middlesex O. B. 3, p. 250, Oct. 13, 1698, the statement is made that he had married Martha, widow of Jno. Parsons, and had acquired thru his wife land left her in the will of her father, Wm. Butcher, dated Jan. 27, 1668. This explains the will of John Butcher, son of William, who, in his will dated April 18, 1698, proved Dec. 5, 1698, leaves all his estate "to my loving brother Jno. Smith" (Middlesex Old Wills, Bundle 3). The Ruth Smith who witnessed this will was very likely the daughter of John Smith and Martha Butcher. It seems likely, since later Thos. Smith is found in the Painketank neighborhood , that he married after the death of his first wife, Ann Petty, this Ruth Smith, who was the mother of his son John, b Jan 24, 1704. This John is therefore the "elder grandson, John Smith," mentioned in the will of John Smith of Pianketank. The £ 50 sterling he bequeaths him is most probably the money value of the estate of his first wife, Martha Butcher, which she had inherited from her father, and to which the children of his second wife, Elizabeth Berry, had no claim. If one refers to the will of Capt. Jno. Smith and notices his liberality to the children of his brother James, it would seem he was neglectful of the son and daughters of his brother Thomas, who had been left in his care. When, however, it is remembered that Thomas's daughter Ann had inherited the estates of Maximilian Petty, William Briscoe, and some property from Christian Petty's third husband, John Vivion Sr., it is seen she is well provided for. Thomas's son John also was taken care of by his grandfather, John Smith of Pianketank, hence did not need the bequest that the children of James Smith received.
The children of John Smith of Pianketank seem to have been (1) Ruth married Thomas Smith, d. before May 1705 leaving son John, b. Jan. 24, 1704; (2) John Jr., who married Frances and predeceased his father, dying Nov. 15, 1717 (his son John was born a month later, Dec. 16, 1717); (3) Jane, who married May 1, 1705, Robert Price, and (4)Thomas, who married Ann and d. Mar 11, 1723."
(The Thomas Smith who married Ruth Smith was the son of John Smith (d 1669) and his wife Margaret. He married 1st Anne Petty and by her had a daughter Anne )

5029 William Charles Smith, from England, changed his surname to Clifton sometime before immigrating to the US 18 March 1908. His son, William John Smith (1899-1970) told his wife Winifred that when his dad, William Charles, visited Canada in about 1905, he saw a big hotel called 'The Clifton'. He decided at that moment to change his name. It is not known why the Smith/Clifton family immigrated to Michigan. It is documented that members from both the paternal and maternal side resided in the same city during the early 1900s.  Family F28916

Harry M. Cleveland, 2064 Montreat Drive, Memphis, TN 38134
The bill of complaint of Jacob BURRUS and Susannah, his wife; Daniel ~10CK and
Polly, his wife; Brice MARTIN; William Martin; Joseph CLEVELAND, administrator of
Martha Cleveland, deceased of Smith County; Archelous HUGHES and Nancy, his wife of
Henry Co TN and Joseph G. WALLER, administrator of Elizabeth Waller of Virginia.
Humbly praying beg leave to show to your honor that on the 20th of May 1813, William
LUCAS of Orange County Virginia made his last will and testament and sometime shortly
thereafter, perhaps in that same year, he departed this life and the said will was
duly proven and recorded with a codicil thereto dated the 9th of August of the same
year and letters testamentary granted to Robert CAVE and John Lucas, the executors
named therein.
The testator died seized and possessed of a very considerable estate both real and
personal and left a large family of children and grandchildren. It will be seen by
reference to the will ..•that it was the habit of the testator when his children
married or left him to lend them a portion or portions of his property holding the
right in himself and which he afterwards disposed of at his own will or pleasure.
His daughter Sarah Lucas intermarried with Joseph Martin and complaintants Susannah,
Polly, Brice, William, Martha, Nancy and Elizabeth are the issue of that marriage
and were all living at the testators death except Elizabeth. In the will William
Lucas states that he lends Rachel Martin 3 negroes during her life and after her decease
negroes go to Sarah's children and also lends to Rachel and her husband Brice
one half of a 400 acre tract of land during their lives. Rachel had intermarried at
an advanced age being upwards of 40 years old against the will and consent of her
father. They went to live at a considerable distance from the old man, say about 200
miles, his opposition was not such as to prevent her visiting him, which she and her
husband occasionally did, but he did not do anything for them until about 7 years
after their marriage. She is now a very old woman perhaps between 75 and 80 years
old, living in Henry Co VA, never having had any issue. Joseph and Sarah Martin
lived in the same county. During this time the slaves have had several children, of
which some are in Rachel's possession and one in possession of Nancy Martin, now
living in Overton Co TN. Brice, a widower when he married the said Rachel, had 2
children, Joseph and William, by a former marriage. William married Nancy and after
moving to TN died. Slaves are now in possession of Thomas SMITH who married a
daughter of William Martin. (William Martin, who died intestate 1817/18, left the
following heirs: wife Nancy, Brice, John, Thomas, Joseph and Unity who married
Thomas Smith.)
Your complaintants are advised and believe that they are in great danger of losing
the bounty and bequest of their grandfather under this management of the life estate
and setting up of interests wholly inconsistent with and in opposition to their remainder.
To the end therefore that the said Nancy Martin of Overton Co TN and
Thomas Smith of Co TN together with Rachel Martin of Henry Co VA be made defendants
to this bill and severally answer the same, particularly let them set forth
and discover the names, ages, descriptions and value of the said negroes and to enjoin
them from selling them•••
Another bill of complaint in the nature of a bill of review was filed 10 Nov 1829.
Depositions were taken from Brice Edwards, Susan C. Waller and James Edwards in July
term 1829. Rachel Martin died in Virginia 1828 since the filing of the original
bill of complaint.

5037 William M Smith?s death certificate reads:
B: 20 Nov 1860 (age 64 y 6 mo 14 days) D: 4 June 1925 in Dumont, TX
Birth Place: Monroe Co, TN
Occupation: Farmer
Name of Father: William Smith
Birthplace of Father: TN
Maiden name of Mother: Elizabeth Hudgings
Birthplace of Mother: TN

I found further confirmation in a book: A History of California and an Extended History of Southern Coastal Counties also Containing Biographies of Well Known Citizens of the Past and Present, Volume 2 - by JM Guinn, secretary and late president of the Historical Society of Southern California and Member of the American Historical Association of Washington, DC.

The book states, ??Of southern birth and lineage he [William M Smith] was born in Monroe County, TN, Nov 20, 1860, a son of William and Elizabeth Hudgings Smith, both natives of the same state, where the father engaged as a farmer until his death, which occurred shortly before this son was born [1860]. His mother, whose grandfather Hudgings server in the Revolutionary war, lived in Tennessee until her death, which occurred at the age of 55. She was the mother of two children?.?

I believe the next 2 paragraphs are the family of William and Elizabeth even thought the spelling of the Elizabeth?s surname is different, but am still researching for confirmation this is true.

Further digging has yielded a marriage record provided to me by the Tennessee State Library shows a marriage license #224 was issued to William P Smith and Eliza J Huggins in McMinn County, TN (one county over from Monroe). They were married on 27 Dec. 1857. They also provided a US Federal mortality schedule for 1860 in McMinn County, TN which indicates that William P Smith (born approx 1837), a farmer, died in April 1860 at the age of 23, killed by B. Jack. I have recently submitted a request for the Circuit Court transcript for this killing.

Further research (census records) indicate that Elizabeth Smith moved to Monroe County where her parents lived and gave birth to her son, William. If I have found the correct family, Elizabeth?s parents were Hicks and Mary Hugins. According to the 1880 census record, William Smith, age 19, resided with his grandparents, Hicks and Marthy Hugins in Monroe County, TN.

In summary: I believe the parents of William M Smith to be:
William P Smith who resided in McMinn County, TN. Born approx 1837 in TN and killed in April 1860 in McMinn County, TN.
Elizabeth/Eliza Hudgings/Huggins 27 Dec 1857 in McMinn County, TN. Resided in Monroe County, TN in Nov 1860 (where she gave birth to William M Smith).
William Smith age 19, lived with his grandparents, Hicks and Marthy Hugins in 1880, in Monroe County, TN.

In addition to this, I found the 1850 US Census - William Smith age 13 (born 1837) living in McMinn County, TN, with his mother, Elizabeth (born in S.C.), and 7 siblings. Neighbors are listed on the same census by the surname of JACK; a coincidence that William was killed 10 years later by a B. Jack in McMinn County?

It is unknown where William Smith was born or who his parents were. Was he born in America, or did he come from England? From Judy?s research, his wife?s name started with ?Fnu??. He died between 1760 and 1761 in Essex County, Virginia. Their children were: Augustin, Robert, Thomas, Elizabeth and Mary. On April 21, 1760 William Smith Sr. of Parish of Southfarnman in the County of Essex, Virginia was paid 22 pounds by Augustin for plantation and parcel of land whereon William Smith now lives. This land formally belonged to Charles Burnett. The land was to go to Augustin upon the death of William Smith. Signed by Wm. Smith. One of the witnesses was William Burnett. On May 20, 1765, William Burnet motion and ordered Thomas Roane and John Upshaw to settle the administrative account of William Smith, Deceased.

In my research, I have found that there are many William Smith?s listed in many documents. Under Family Search?s master index there are over 100 William Smith?s listed from 1680 to 1736. In all probability, the William Smith above is the correct one because of the will listing Augustin as one of his sons. In addition there are also many Augustin and Augustine Smith?s listed between the late 1600?s and the 1700?s.

5048 William Smith, a Russian Jew, aka Vasili Seibert was born in Russia, went to Russian Alaska as a bookkeeper for a trading company. When the US bought Alaska (Seward's Icebox), he gained citizenship by remaining the prescribed time.

He divorced his wife there (Kodiak, AK) and sailed to San Francisco with son Julian. He married Rachel Reuben, a Jewish native of San Francisco. He took a job as a bookkeeper for Brown Brother's Men's Clothing. Wm & Rachel had four kids including my grandfather, Walter Smith. He bought title to a gold claim in Tehachapi, CA in 1895. Rachel died in 1899 and he took off for the mines. The last record found of him was a modification to his claim, removing his son-in-law from it who failed to work the prescribed time. Hey, it was the high desert! He is not in the 1920 census and there is no death record or grave site for him. Likely died at the mine.

Lotsa fun but I don't know where he came from or where and when he died. His claim is now within the Tehachapi wind farm. No local records or info found

5049 William Starke Smith, the second son of L.A. Smith and his first wife Paulina Pool, was born at Curdsville on July 18, 1869. As a young man he moved to Richmond and got a job as a streetcar operator. On November 21, 1894, he married Grace M. Burton, a neighbor in Ca Ira. As it turned out, they had only one child. William -- I don't believe he was ever called Bill -- continued to work for the streetcar company his entire career, and he and Grace continued to live in the same house with their daughter even after her marriage. He broke with his family's Episcopal tradition, joining first his wife's Baptist church and then his son-in-law's Methodist church. He died in Richmond on July 20, 1945, two days after his 76th birthday and just a few weeks after I was born.
