Both my 3 AND 2 greats grandfathers, Benajah Smith and son Amos DeForest Smith were born in Cortland county (1809, 1838). Benajah and his wife (perhaps named Sally Ann Barton) moved from Cortland county (perhaps Virgil) with sons Lewis B. and Amos (when he was an infant in 1838). I have an autograph book from Amos's son Roy Stone Smith signed by cousins named Munson of Virgil and Cortland dated 1863, "C.C.College". I cannot find any Cortland county connection for any of these people. Benajah and Sally died in Venango county, PA and Amos died in Crawford county PA. Amos' son, Roy Stone Smith married Inez Seamans of Virgil, NY.
