    Notes 
    • Andrew Smith (Andreas Schmidt) is known to have been of German descent. He is believed to have been born in eastern PA, possibly in Berks Co. First records show him marrying in Berkeley Co, VA, in 1792; then living in what is now Stanly Co, NC, around 1796; and moving to Union Co, IL, around 1818. He may possibly be the Andrew Smith recorded as having been born in Nov 1765 in Berks Co, PA, to Jacob and Margaretha Schmit, but all evidence is purely circumstantial.-J Secan
