Can anyone shed some light on David Smith living in Yancey County in 1850 and 1860 with his wife Elizabeth.
I know they had three daughters:
Sarah Sallie Smith (Married William Frazier Hall)
Malinda Smith(Married Greenberry Silver)
Hannah Smith (Mack Silas McCurry)
Many genealogist associate this David Smith with the one from Lincoln County who married Elizabeth Arendt, this is not the case. My David Smith is found in 1850 and 1860 living in Yancey County, not in Lincoln County.
Another Marriage is to Elizabeth Idol on Jan 15 1803. I do not believe this is this David Smith either as he dies in 1823 according to this article http://whitlockfamilyassociation.com.s3.amazonaws.com/source...
Our David supposedly came from New Jersey as it states on the 1860 census. He was born abt 1785 and his wife abt 1786.
