I am in the process of finding the link between George and
the ancestry to Wilhelm Schmidt, it is clear cut from my
Mother's maternal side of the Family. Her parents were related as cousins both distant and near. George is a direct link to Coleman Hull Smith, my Grandfather.
William Navey, a relative has done much research on the Smith and related families, however, the direct link from
George to Wilhelm still eludes me, but I know its there.
