 What happened to the sons of Samuel Smith?

Samuel Smith was born in Leochel-Cushnie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland in 1819 (although the age shown on US records incorrectly suggest he was born about 1825). At some point prior to 1848 he moved to the US and married a woman named Eve aka Affey who was born 1823 in either Ohio or Pennsylvania (depending on which census you look at). 

A son William was born in Ohio in 1848.  In 1850 the family lived in Essex, Porter County, Ohio.  Another son Manuel (aka Emanuel) was born in Ohio about 1852.  Another son Tobias was born in California about 1856 followed by two daughters Abbie about 1859 and Lovina about 1862.  I have found marriages, deaths and descendants for the daughters.

Samuel died in Sacramento County in 1899.  Tobias may have predeceased his father as he is not mentioned in Samuel's obituary.  William died in 1926, unmarried and probably childless.  I have not confirmed any information about Manuel after Samuel's death.

Any information on the fate of either Tobias or Manuel Smith gratefully appreciated.
