The 1850 Census for Warren County, District 69, shows the farm family of Benjamin and Maria Smith (both 38), including children John W. and Benj. Jr. (13, evidently twins), Elizabeth A.(12), Ann M.(11), George W.(8), Julia A.(6), and Henry J.(1)
I believe this John W. Smith is my great grandfather. I've been hunting for him for years (John W. Smith is a VERY tough name to trace).
ANY information about this family will be MOST appreciated.
