Smiths in Caroline Co., VA-1810 Census

Smiths in Caroline Co., VA-1810 Census

Classification: Query
Surnames: Smith, Bennett
There were several Smiths on the 1810 Caroline Co., VA census. These were: Rice Smith (age 26-45), Christopher Smith (over the age of 45), Elizabeth Smith (over the age of 45), Jury Smith (over the age of 45), Francis Smith (age 26-45) and Richard Smith (over the age of 45). Can anyone "connect" each of these people to a particular Smith family in VA from the 1700s?

There was also a Francis Smith on the 1810 Essex Co., VA census. Was there any "connection" between these two Francis Smiths (or between any of the Smiths in Essex County and any of the Smiths in Caroline County)?

In the 1820s, a John R. Smith was mentioned in the estate papers of a man named Smith Bennett in Middlesex Co., VA. In 1830, that John R. Smith appeared on the Middlesex Co., VA census (there had been NO Smiths on the 1810 and 1820 censuses in Middlesex County). In the 1840s, that John R. Smith left a will in Middlesex County that mentioned his children named James M. Smith and Susan E. Smith. Does anyone know if this John R. Smith came into Middlesex from Caroline Co., VA (or Essex Co., VA)? Thanks!

Are you connected to any of the Smith families in Caroline today?

I have no knowledge of the Smiths in your post but am connected with most of the current Smith families in Caroline. Most of their roots go back to the Western part of the county, Spotsylvania and Louisa. My history starts late 1700's.

I am also trying to make earlier connections.

If you are interested e-mail me some of your more current names and your relationships with them and I will compare with my data base and report back to you.

I have Smith's in Caroline, Spotsylvania, Louisa and Orange Counties. I have traced some to the early 1900's. I am related also to the Rice Smith, James Rice Smith was from Spotsylvania prior to Caroline County.

I have:

Jaareoregim Smith Turner
he is particularly hard to research.

I am thinking the Turner was placed on later?

maybe you have some information. He's my GG Grandfather.

Jaareoregin Smith was born about 1790 in Louisa County, VA. I don't believe Turner was ever added to his name. His son is my gg grandfather James Dickerson Smith b. 1812 in Louisa and died 1893 in Caroline County, VA. I am 75 years old and know of no Turners in my direct family line. Sorry I can't be of more help.

On the document of "Will" on a fellow tree. It states "Unity Turner" as a dec'd and what she was to receive. Unity is the connection we are searching for. We have Sarah, Susan, Elizabeth, JohnThomas, Whitfield, Nathan, Coleman, Cole, Dykes, Thompson, and Polly, and several others that are in your tree that are very very close to our search. We knew JS Turner (JaareOregim Smith Turner) had to be given special as a descendant. Also Whitfield, Thomas, Unity, and some others Coleman, Nathan etc... We have a missing story and DNA isn't matching Turners it's matching Smith and Lee. ROBERT BRUCE TURNER is the youngest living descendants closest to JS it's my fathers Great Grandfather. My grandpa is Virgil JaareOregim Turner. "JaareOregim" is a specific name found only in the bible and has some spelling changes through the census as education didn't really help back then in phonetics. But Jair Jaare Jaare Oregon etc. however it's truly JaareOregim. Maybe you can view some of my diary remarks that have Nathan and Elijah lige and several others even Wilkinson and Lee and etc... There really is a missing link and your tree on the web was the closest ever found "2" Jaareoregim Smith's is like statistically almost "not". Can you please send me a email. K

I don't have information on your GG Grandfather but the first name sounds familar. I think while researching in Louisa County, VA I saw that name. He could have been Smith and it was changed to Turner or sometimes they will name a child after someone in the mothers family. She may have been a Smith..
