Moses Smith abt 1748 from SC to Buncombe NC Possible SC sons: Jeremiah,Joseph,Thomas,Benjamin,Wm D. and Richard

I am seeking information about old Moses Smith b abt 1748, who was in Pendleton or Newberry SC in 1800, 1810 Pendleton, and in Buncombe in 1820-30. More than likely he was the father of Jeremiah Smith (1773 SC) from SC to Buncombe to Henderson and Cherokee and Marshall Cos Ala.as they were migrating together as neighbors. Jeremiah was almost a perfect DNA match to my Smith DNA line, so my line is possibly Joseph, Benjamin,Thomas or Richard, probable sons of old Moses.
In 1820 old Moses was listed with this group as close neighbors: Jeremiah, Joseph, William D., more than likely sons. In 1810 Pendleton, Jeremiah is grouped with Moses,Benjamin,Thomas and Thomas Jr and Richard. Since my great great grandfather (1826 SC) was Thomas Harrison Smith and he named my great grandfather Wm Joseph Smith (1852), possibly we can narrow the field to Joseph or Thomas.
Jeremiah married Mary Tidmore, but I think possibly he was married before that. In 1810, he had two children under 10, but his children with Mary Tidmore start at 1811 according to shared data on this family.Jeremiah and the Tidmores migrated to Cherokee and Marshall Co Ala in the 1840s.
My GG Thomas Harrison Smith migrated to Lumpkin Co Ga in 1846, as he was a gold miner. Moses Smith Jr b 1811 was a brother based on family records. He came from Pendleton/Pickens in the 1850s and lived next door to Thomas in Lumpkin/Dawson Co Ga Yellow Creek. I have been told Riley Smith (1806 SC- 1868 Burnett TX) from Pickens to Missouri to Tennssee to Arkansas to TX was also possibly a brother.I am trying to get this Smith family in order as my mother was a direct descendant Smith of this line.Any help appreciated.

I'm interested in your post because I am searching for info for Wm. D. Smith said to have been born in VA abt 1830. Do you have any follow-up on the one you mentioned?

I wish could help but all mine were originally in SC before 1773 that I have documented. In the 1880 census Thomas and Moses Jr state both parents were born in SC so they would have been there in the 1770s-80s. My G Grandfather was Wm Joseph b 1852 Lumpkin Co. His father Thomas (1826)and brother Moses were born in probably Pendleton SC. because that is where my lines were found in the early census records. They migrated out of SC into Buncombe before 1820.
I do know of a Smith line in SC who were from Va and they married into my Durham line in Chatham Co NC. They were originally from Va and so were my Durhams.They migrated to SC. This was the Christopher Kitt Smith line. He was born abt 1730 in Va. Supposedly his son was old John Buckner Smith Rev War Patriot who died in Pickens SC.My Great grandfather Wm Joseph did name a son Wm D Smith who was born in 1888 Ga.However, that name is so common. Much luck! Josie
