  • Notes 
    • You will notice that the gedcom in kit 16461 indicates that the ancestor of Alfred M Smith is one Gabriel Smith of North Carolina. I am leaving that in in respect for the kit taker's belief, based on a reference in a county family book, that this is so. However, there is no source for Alfred's father being Gabriel. And in fact, in tracing back the families through the census, plus the marriage record, it is strongly apparent that Alfred M Smith b c 1836 was born in Georgia and is a son of James, grandson of Jesse.

      Here is the line of proof for that.

      1850 Franklin Co GA- Alfred Smith 13 in household of James Smith, 50 GA (that makes him born c 1837)

      1860 Franklin Co GA/Carnesville -Alfred Smith, age 23 in household of James Smith 60 GA

      Nov 2 1861- Alfred M Smith m Sophronia Murphy in Franklin Co GA (source: Hunting for Bears: Georgia Marriages 1699-1944)

      1880- Alfred M Smith, S E (wife) and H N in Habersham Co GA. Note that H N has it that his parents were born in GA, I believe the NC on Albert M is a mistake.

      That said, we here are always open to correction, and welcome sourced information in support of Gabriel. Otherwise, our strong presumption based on the above is that Alfred M Smith was one of the sons of James Smith, b c 1800 d c 1861 Franklin Co GA. We do have another Gabriel Smith b 1761 NC whose descendants went to Carroll Co GA-these are not a DNA match with the Jesse Smith group.
