This line went from Adair Co KY to Texas.
Would like to find a male Smith descendant of this line to consider doing a YdNA test (ie, you are a male, and a Smith with a direct line to John D Smith m Elizabeth Duncan, Harris Co TX
Christian Schmidt wasn't from Prussia his family was from the Palatinate of Germany to New York and he was actually born in New York from my research. The Christian Schmidt you're referring to bought land in Wachovia North Carolina but never actually lived on it and his heirs later had it sold and they too never left Germany. This is a commonly re-copied mistake on Ancestry and other genealogy sites.
Thank You ! There are many autosomal tests on this branch in Ancestry DNA and from Christian Schnidt/ Smith born 1744. There are a few or more in Family Tree DNA, 23andme and some on My Heritage. I am needing good X DNA lines ffrom the sons of Christian Schmidt/ Smith born 1744 died 1800, the father of Christian born 1774 this will aid in finding the Maternal line for Christian born 1774 and his siblings.
Hello Peggy, I am descended from Christian Smith, Christian C. Smith, John D. Smith, Anderson Smith, and so on... I have sent off for my YDNA kit
Thanks! Have separated the two lines. Be sure if you see anything else to send corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org -would also like verification on the children. If there are still errors here, please discuss
From a previous note of Peggy's
So, 3 conflated Christian Schmidts/Smiths.
1. Johann Christoph Schmidt d 1799 m Anna Helena Grundling
2. Christian Smith b ? > Stokes Co NC m Ann Limbach (1774 Prussia). I'm assuming this is the one Robert refers to whre he sayd he bought land in Wachovia NC but never actually lived on it, etc. Yes?
3. Christian Smith/Schmidt from Germany > New York.Robert is saying that Christian Columbus Smith is from this one
