4755 Thomas SMITH, Jr. (1781-1813) was born 21 Mar 1781 on Swearing Creek, Jersey Settlement, Rowan Co., North Carolina Colony, and died circa Mar 1813, killed and beheaded with his cousin Jonathan Todd in Boones Lick country, St. Charles Dist., Missouri Territory by Sauk and Fox natives during the native uprisings of the War of 1812. The two settlers were militiamen from Ft. Hempstead, out from the safety of the fort to hunt for some horses which, they thought, had strayed away. A militia corporal in the fort was Thomas' older brother Andrew (1879-1840), and another militiaman there was Lindsey Carson, father of Christopher 'Kit' Carson, then about four years of age. Thomas Jr. hadn't yet married, assuming perhaps that he had a lifetime in which to do that. Smith, Thomas Jr. (I36287)

4759 THOMPSON, ELECTIUS—"We are assembled, on this interesting occasion, around the grave of Electius Thompson, a revolutionary father, to pay to his memory the last tribute of respect.


"But we hasten to give you a brief sketch of Electius Thompson. He was born in 1750, near the place where the city of Washington now stands, and died at the advanced age of ninety years. Losing his father when an infant, he was committed to the charge of an uncle, who placed him on a vessel at sea at the early age of nine years, to learn the arduous duties of a sailor. It is not intended in this address, nor is it in the power of the speaker, to recount to you the many thrilling incidents attending him, while leading the eventful life of a wanderer on the ocean. He will only remark, that he was a bold and faithful sailor, whose patience never forsook him in the calm, and whose courage never failed him in the storm. By his candor, firmness and integrity, he always secured the confidence of those with whom he associated, both on land and sea.


"In 1775, when the tocsin of alarm was sounded from the hill tops, and the flames of the revolution began to rage on our borders, he relinquished his home on the briny waves, to serve his country in the humble capacity of a private in a volunteer company, bearing on his helmet, in legible letters, the motto, 'Liberty or death' and he continued to battle in the cause of freedom. through most of the long and bloody war.


"The officer in command has many incentives, besides those of patriotism, to impel him on to the deadly strife. The thrilling anticipation of wreathing around his brow the chaplet of unfading glory—the hope that his name and his deeds may be handed down, on marble records, and on the annals of history, for the praise and admiration of posterity, urge him on to face the storm, and to expose his bosom to the firey gleam of the sabre and the bayonet. But no other motive than the love of liberty and the pride of country. animated Electius Thompson on the ensanguined field, and sustained him under the privations and hardships of the camp, the toil and fatigue of the march. Ambition's mad'ning influence held no sway over his simple and honest heart. 'Liberty or death' was written on his frontlet and graven on his heart no panting desire for fame urged him onward in the perilous and dreadful conflict; His country and his rights alone stood before him, and he felt the warrior's arm nerved by the patriot's heart. He was an honest and a virtuous man—a brave and faithful soldier, his youthful days were devoted to the service of his country, and his declining years to the service of his God. His infant mind was imbued with the Roman Catholic faith; and although he continued a dupe to priestcraft until middle age, often contributing his humble mite to the sordid cupidity of the priest, to absolve him from his sins, he finally cast off the veil of ignorance and superstitution which had been thrown around him in early life, and refused to acknowledge the power of absolution in any other being but Him, 'who formed the heavens and the earth, who holds the sun in his hand, and upholds the immense fabric of the universe by the word of his power'. The true light of Christianity beamed upon his benighted soul, and dispelled the dark cloud of superstitution which had so long overshadowed him—and at the age of forty, having renounced the Roman Catholic religion, he connected himself with the church of that ancient and respectable denomination of Christians, the Baptists. Nor was he a silent and an inefficient member; for although compelled to obtain his living by the sweat of his brow, he spent a portion of his time in promulgating the imperishable truths of Christianity—in extending the benign influence of the gospel; and his energy as a minister of the gospel continued unabated, even in the sunset of life. He lived to see the country for whose liberties he had fought, free, prosperous and happy. Thus he filled up the measure of his existence, and closed his eyes forever on America's cloudless sky. And although we shall see him no more on this earth—although his body lies crumbling into dust; yet, from the tenor of his life, we have the most confident assurance that, new-fledged, he has towered away to dip his pinions in the fount of light".—Huntsville Democrat, July 17, 1841.

THOMSON, ELECTROUS, aged 78, and a resident of Morgan County; private, Maryland Continental Line; enrolled on September 17, 1833, under act of Congress of June 7,1832, payment to date from March 4, 1831; annual allowance, $50; sums received to date of publication of list, $125.—Revolutionary Pension Roll, in Vol. xiv, Sen.

Since the consent was given, Sarah may not have been of legal age to marry.

Augustine with his father, John Smith, gave bond to the amount of one hundred and fifty dollars to assure that the marriage would take place. Hezekiah not only signed the bond with his bold signature, ***** but had written out the contract and consent in his own hand and since Augustine and his father could only make their marks, which, as required by law was witnessed by a person who could sign his own name. In this case it was a Caleb Tate, Jr. Thomas Hall, Sarah's brother, also witnessed for the Halls and he could sign his name.

4788 Two Marys - Two families
In the research we have done, it does appear that Benjamin Franklin Smith had two families. The first was with Mary AE Smith (as listed in the census records), and the second family was with Mary Seleta Jenkins (Listed as Mary S.

Smith and Mary S Jenkins in Census records)

Some elder family members do remember a Marian and a "White Sox" as visiting the families and census records show Marion listed as a Brother in some of the census households of his siblings.

Although no one has a record of who the Mary's parents were/are we guess they may have been related??? as is often the case in a remarriage in that day and time. We have no proof one way or another however.
If anyone has any information to share on these families we would love to hear from you. We do have some information from Burline Smith Watkins about the Marian D. Smith families.

I have also been in communication with a Milton Jenkins of MS who is convinced the Jenkins are part of his line. From census records that would appear to be true. If so then Mary Jenkins parents are William R. Smith and Nancy Deason. I would like to find some further proof on that such as probate or land records to prove the connections.
We will pursue the lines until we give out :-) or pass along.

4790 U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1885 about Patrick Smith
Name: Patrick Smith
Gender: Male
Race: White
Marital Status: Widowed
Place of Birth: Virginia
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1783 [Abt 1788]
Age: 87
Month of Death: Jan
Cause of Death: Disease of the Heart
Census Year: 1870
Census Location: (City, County, State)
Jones Bluff**, Coosa, Alabama
Line: 1

**Note: Jones Bluff is probably an ERROR. See related notes below for additional details on why. The transcription gives birth year of 1783, but this was an error
for 1788, so 1788 shows the user-submitted correction.

Death date and county, state of death is from the 1870 Mortality Index (Coosa Co, AL). It is unclear what town he died in due to discrepancies and inconsistencies in the record.

The Ancestry.com transcription (by a volunteer) says Jones Bluff, but the actual image page on which he is listed lists no town name. The page prior lists Jordans Beat. Additionally, per the directions on the Mortality Index that cross-reference the family with which he was living at the time of death, he was living in Flint Hill Beat. Thus it is unclear if he died in Jones Bluff, Jordans Beat, or Flint Hill Beat.
There appears to be no logical basis that for the volunteer transcriptionist's listing Jones Bluff, so likely Flint Hill or Jordans Beat is more appropriate.

Per directions on the Mortality Index listing, (Column 1), it says the number listed is the number of the family (in the regular census) in which he lived at his death. The number given is 27 and above Patrick Smith's name it says Coleman, but the name is marked out. (The next listing below Patrick is MJC Tell (Teel), infant of TJ Tell (Teel), family 28, which should be the neighbor. Referring back to the regular 1870 census listing, shows column 1 is the dwelling house in order of visitation and column 2 is the family number. Presumably, it is this family number (column 2) that is being referred to on the Mortality Index, so family 27.

Dwelling / Family:
26 / 27:
H. J. Smith, 23, m, farmer, 250, AL
A. J. Smith, 20, f, Keeping house, AL
Dora Smith, 11/12, f, AL

27 / 28:
W. H. Coleman, 55, m, farmer, 300, NC
M. R. Coleman, 47, f, Keeping house, AL

with 27 / 29 (same house, different family):
M. J. Blankenship, 22, m, farmer, 250 / 220, AL
M. J. Blankenship, 15, f, AL

28 / 30:
T. J. Teel, 23, m, Farmer, 300 / 400, AL
T. J. Teel, 16, f, Keeping House, AL
W. Henry Teel, 23, f, Farmer, AL
M. J. C. Teel, 1/12, f?*, AL

*Gender for MJC Teel is unclear. Listed as male on the mortality index dying in Jan. 1870, but is listed here in the census when Patrick who died in Jan. 1870 was not listed. The gender here appeared to have something written in & over it that didn't look like the other F for females, but looked more like an F than an M.

It is assumed then, that since Coleman was marked out, it was meant he was
living with the H. J. Smith family, however, there was no attempt to likewise correct the family number, so is ambiguous.

To further add to the confusion, both families are known relatives.

H. J. Smith is Patrick's grandson, Henry Jackson Smith b/ ca 1847 married
Alcey Jane (Nancy) Blankenship. Henry Jackson Smith is the son of John Alexander Smith (Patrick’s son) and Mary Frances (Fanny) Pody.

It also makes sense, probably more so, for Patrick to have been living in the Coleman family as his daughter, Mary Jane (not MR) married William H. Coleman. They were in 1860 Talladega Co, AL, but is assumed to have moved back, perhaps to care for her father?

In light of the Coleman marking and nothing else written in, no correction to the family 27 and in light of it being a closer relationship (daughter vs. grandson) and women usually cared for their elderly, he was probably living with the Colemans vs. the Smiths, but this cannot be confirmed.

It would be helpful to know as his grave, nor that of his wife who predeceased him, has yet to be found.  
Smith, Patrick (I3901)
