I am looking for any information on a John Smith Sr, who was born Bet. 1720-1740's. I have no idea where, but do know that he was prob. married twice. I have his last wife as Elizabeth.
I have him on census files starting in 1790 Rockingham, N.C.
Children of this John Smith Sr and Elizabeth ? were:
I believe most of the children where born in N.C./S.C. prior to
1780. I again have them on census Aft. 1820 in Tn.
John Smith Sr dies in 1825. Being of ill health, the previous year he wrote his will. He named the people above in his will.
He also named Richard Campbell and James Hix as his son-in-laws. Also named was Thomas Hix.
If you or anyone has information on the ancestry of this John Smith Sr, Please let me know. I descend from Samantha/Smithe Smith that married Richard Campbell's brother, William Campbell. At the time of Johns death, William wasn't mentioned in John Smiths will. So it is assumed that he William Campbell had died by 1825 writting of the will.The Smith will was proven in 1827 in Williamson Co, Tn.
