  • Name Frederick Smith 
    Born Between 1790 and 1799  North Carolina, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • The only document that reports his age is an 1830 US Census record that lists him in the 30-39 age group, which puts him as being born anywhere from 1790 to 1799. I chose to list "abt. 1790" because his widow's next two husbands were both older men born before 1790 - Kevin Smith

    Daughter Mary Emma Smith Day's record for her 1877 marriage to Myron Van Clake lists her birth place as Elbert County, GA (misspelled Ellbest in the record).

    Residence 1832  Upson County, Georgia, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    The Georgia Archives Reference (ask@georgiaarchives.libanswers.com) confirmed that "There is no prize listed for Frederick Smith's orphans in the indexes of either the 1832 Land Lottery or the 1832 Gold Lottery." This suggests that the orphans were awarded their 1832 Cherokee Gold lot outside the 1832 lottery system and that Frederick Smith did not die until after fathering his youngest child, Green W. Lafayette Smith, born in 1834. This theory is consistent with the information contained in the "History of Upson County" which reports that the lot won by the Frederick Smith Orphans was drawn in 1835. This theory likely also applies to the 1832 Cherokee lot won by widow Elizabeth Smith, but needs to be confirmed with the Georgia Archives Reference.
