Hi - guess its been some time since I looked at this blog - I have traced my ancestry from my grandfather Lloyd Poole Smith, to Marcus Columbus Smith, Marcus L Smith, Morgan Elijah Smith, Henry Austin Smith and then Solomon Augustus Smith (1745-1802). I have a DNA link with Henry and Solomon. All of these ggggrandfathers are Burke and Caldwell Counties, Nc. I thought that Samuel and Grizzel Smith were Solomon Augustus's parents but now DNA from another source makes that look less likely so have hit a wall there. I have also found a DNA link with another bunch of smiths who all use Augustus in their names but haven't been able to make any kind of connection yet - just started that route. Ay suggestions or ideas?
