  • Notes 
    • Nelson Gates Smith, born 1816, Watertown NY. His father's name appears to be "Jas" from Nelson's death record, but handwriting is difficult to read. Nelson married Mary Hickok, born 16 December 1824 in Hartford, CT, daughter of Barzillai Hickock b 1797 and Harriet Wood b 1794. Nelson and Mary were married 9 August 1841 in Chicago (records lost).

      Nelson Gates Smith had a brother Leonard L. Smith who lived in Michigan, and a cousin Chloe Ann Smith who married Simeon Dow, founder of Dow City IA. Chloe had a brother Ezequiel Smith who was an abolitionist lawyer in Cass Co, MI, then Chicago.
