Solomon Smith my G G G Grandfather was born 1745 died 1803. He received a land grant of 200 acres on December 27 1778. Only location given, "Zacks Fork of lower Creek." Prior to his death he purchased more property. There is a Smith family graveyard located somewhere on this property. Only information I have is it's located on the crest of a ridge overlooking Zacks Fork of Lower Creek. On Dec 12 1796 he ran a classified add and gives his address as: "Third Creek of the Catawba, Burke Co." This also may be a clue? In Lenoir there is an intersection known to some as Smiths Crossroads.
He wife's name was Ally and he had 3 sons, Anthony, Augustine and Solomon II who is my G G Grandfather. My Great Granfather was Julius Smith (1840-1923) Burried in Morganton. I want to find the Smith Family Graveyard, and information on my G G G Grandfather. Solomon Smith. Thanks David
