    • Notes for NANCY ANN KENNEDY SMITH:
      Nancy's first husband, Andrew Smith, fought in the American Revolution in the GA Troops with John Wheat.
      Smith family tradition says that Andrew was slain by a hostile Indian in GA as he was clearing the land he
      received for his war service. Only known child of Nancy's first marriage was Andrew Smith, Jr., b. 1 May 1780,
      GA d. 17 Dec 1858. He married Nancy Elizabeth ________ (widow of Abram Roberts) and they had 8 children.
      From Descendants of John Wheat Sr
    • Notes for JOHN WHEAT:
      John served in the American Revolution as shown by Lucian Lamar Knight in his "Georgia's Roster of the
      Revolution". Page 189 shows, "Wheat, John. Certificate of Elijah Clarke, Col., Feb 2, 1784".
      John and Nancy Ann were still in Wilkes Co., GA in 1786 when she and her sisters inherited land from her
      father's estate. On 15 Mar 1790, John Wheat was granted 300 acres of land in Wilkes Co. John sold 200 acres of
      5
      this land 29 May 1790 to Joshua Johnston. He sold the last 100 acres to Leonard Phillips on 17 Oct 1797. About
      this time he and Nancy Ann moved to the Tombigbee River area in what is now Washington Co., AL. The
      Mississippi Territorial Papers establish that John and his brothers, Solomon and Hezekiah occupied adjoining
      land near the Tombigbee. Brother Thomas received a Spanish Grant nearby. Life was very difficult and settlers
      were sometimes attacked by Indians. Among them was the wife of one Frederick Smith, said to be related to the
      Wheat's by marriage. Court testimony was that Smith came to the area in 1798, lived with the Wheats, raised a
      crop there in 1799, and after his wife was scalped and killed by the Indians, sold his improvement to John Wheat
      for one gallon of taffia. Evidently Smith was somehow related to Nancy Ann's first husband, Andrew.
      By 1803, John and Nancy had moved further west. They went to St. Tammany Parish, LA and were in the
      northern part of the parish on Silver Creek (the area is now part of Washington Parish). And by 1819 they had
      relocated a final time, to Hancock Co., MS. John and his sons William and Joseph appear on the Hancock Co.
      Tax Rolls from that time until their deaths. The land they finally called home is now in the northern portion of
      Pearl River Co., MS. Here, this branch of the family put down deep and lasting roots. Descendants still sprinkle
      the area today. John and Nancy Ann are buried in the Wheat Family Cemetery near the Pearl River in what is
      known as the Buck Branch Community.
