Re: Alexander SMITH m. Elizabeth ROSSER
YES....Elizabeth ROSSER was married to Alexander SMITH
I am a ROSSER....and also a SMITH descendant...so your post grabbed my attention.
BTW...that's Faddy WHITTINGTON, not spelled "Whittenton." *S*
ROSSER info, I have, and for Johnston Co. NC, and there were 2 SMITH sons who married 2 ROSSER sisters. I will be happy to steer you toward this information.
I am still trying to identify which early SMITH line is mine. My luck is...2 different SMITH lines are in my paternal family tree, but only one pre-dates 1796 ...which "should" make the hunt a bit easier.
The SMITH(Schmidt) line arrived in Charleston SC in 1796, and I have that line well I.D.'d as this line immigrated from Saxony (Bavaria) Germany.
However, the pre-1796 SMITH line has been difficult to I.D....as I have only two names (father & son) John SMITH, and a vague reference to "Province of Carolina." The location clue points to the Colonization of the Carolinas, but nothing more.
Therefore, I am hoping that I can not only help you with Elizabeth ROSSER-Alexander SMITH ...but that you might be able to help me with my SMITH in the pre-1800 Carolina's puzzle.
