Circa 1692 Andrew added to his family the newly-orphaned eight-year old John Fidler, whom he brought from Woodbridge, Middlesex Co. to Chesterfield Twp, near, Burlington (Burlington Co. in 1694). John's mother died the year he was born (1684) and his father died a short time before 1692. (Had Andrew & Olive lived there, with she possibly dying there in 1692?) --- John Fidler grew up in the Smith family, perhaps in indenture or apprenticeship, and became well-educated, such that he was later able to work as a scrivener and take an active part in civic affairs. And, he was included in immigrant Andrew's Will.
In 1701, the Kingdoms of England & Scotland united, producing new laws tending to lay restrictions on non-Anglican religious groups, (especially the feared Catholics), and in 1707 formed 'The Kingdom of Great Britain' under one crown. In 1702 Anne ascended the throne (reigned 1702-1714); her abiding fear of Catholics gaining control of Britain and suspicion directed toward any group outside of Anglican led to caution among non-Anglicans, such as the Quakers.
On 28 Feb 1701 in Burlington, West New Jersey, immigrant Andrew responded to the handwriting on the wall under Queen Anne and was baptized (per the Register) by the Rev. Mr. John Talbot (first Rector of St. Mary's Episcopal Church) as were his already-adult offspring, Thomas, Elizabeth, Mary, Hannah and Andrew, to protect their inheritance rights. Immigrant daughter Sarah had been baptized earlier, 12 Dec 1675, at St. John The Baptist church, Royston, West Riding, Yorkshire, a two years before the family's immigration to the Colonies.
Andrew was a Freeholder [owning land free and clear] and therefore entitled to serve on juries and hold office:
In 1702 Anne ascended the throne of Great Britain (ruling until 1714).
Andrew served on a Grand Jury 3 Nov 1702.
Andrew signed a Will, unrecorded, on 16 Jan 1704.
Andrew's estate was probated on 7 Mar 1704.

|Smith, Andrew 'immigrant' the 1st (I17869)
|52|| Lester Smith was born 18 Jul 1913 in Knox, KY. He married Ethel Broughton, and had 10 children. Ethel Broughton was born 6 Jan 1918 and died 24 Jul 2001 in Knox, KY. She was the daughter of John Henry Broughton and Ellen Doan, and was a sister to Charlie Broughton who married her husband Lester's sister Hazel Smith. |
I don't currently know the date of death for Lester. His wife's obituary listed him as being deceased. So, he died sometime prior to her death (Jul 2001).
Lester's original Kentucky birth record from 1913 may have listed him as Leonard McVey. His father William McVey Smith was using his mothers McVey surname when he and his wife Amelia got married, so their oldest children were probably born as McVey's. Sometime between 1910 and 1920 William quit using the McVey name and started to use his father's surname of Smith. So, I'm pretty sure the Leonard McVey birth record belongs to Lester Smith. 30 years later, in 1943 a new Kentucky birth record was issued for Lester Smith with the same 18 Jul 1913 date of birth as Leonard McVey. Both birth records also listed the mother as Amelia Gambrel, and were both in Knox, KY.

|54|| My farthest back Smith ancestor that is provable is Joseph and Elisabeth Hallum Smith. Joseph was born ca 1745 probably in York Pa. Elizabeth Hallum was the daughter of William and Martha (?) Hallum.|
Joseph died in what is now Pickens County SC in the year 1814. Based on a disposition by Mary Porter, oldest child of Joseph and Elizabeth Smith, for a Rev. War pension for Job Smith, died 1837 Pickens County SC, Joseph and Job were probably brothers. Strong conjecture is that they were the sons of Job Smith Sr and Hannah Smith. There is conjecture of a couple of lines back, that look good, but I have seen no proof. ...I know Joseph received two land grants totaling 550 acres on upper waters of Big Beaverdam Creek in present day Anderson Co. SC. Around 1800 he moved to the intersection of 18 mile Creek and Golden creek in present day Norris, Pickens Co SC where he died in 1814. I THINK he received a grant of 100 acres near present day Donalds SC in Abbeville Co 2 Dec 1766. A Joseph Smith did, and Mary Smith Porter was born 8 Feb 1768. A Job Smith, probably Senior and father of Joseph, received a 250 acre land grant 6 Nov 1765 in present day Abbeville Co SC close to where Joseph received his. I THINK they moved to Columbia County Georgia around 1769 and back to Abbeville Co SC around 1780.
My Basil Smith was born 1772 in Georgia.

|56|| Our DNA has 300+ 12 marker matches, however the number of 24 and 37 marker matches goes down drastically. Of the 300+, 21 are Smiths and 17 are Clouds. The Clouds are prevelant in the 24 matches as well, but the Smiths are not. I understand the genetic differences that can exist in 12 marker matches, however the 21 Smiths had me thinking. A few can trace themselves back to a Smith (Joseph? I can?t remember) who immigrated to America as a Puritan and also move to the Hartford, CT area soon after. This mirrors my earliest known ancestor Matthew Grant. I immediately became concerned that there may have been some interesting things going on in the new world. Luckily, the Clouds helped me find a different explanation (although they didn?t know it). The Clouds came over a tiny bit later than the Puritans, but for similar reasons as Quakers settling in PA. These Clouds came from Wiltshire, however the earliest known Cloud, a Simon de la Cloude, lived in the 13th century in the Warwickshire area. There was also a well known Smith family in the same area although I believe they show up in the histories a bit later than Simon. Another family nearby was the Shakespeares (I love that part). And then there was a family that shows up in the same area early in the 15th century when Walter le Graunt of Snitterfield receives land as a gift from the King (I think it was Richard II). They became well known when Walter?s great-great grandson John is hung for his role in the Gunpowder Plot. The family disappears soon after, with John?s sons removing to London and working in the soap industry after regaining and then selling the family estate Norbrook Manor to Thomas Pickering. I plan to go to Warwickshire in 2013, find any remaining Grants, and corner them until they have told me everything they know.|
I believe John to be Matthew?s uncle or possibly his grandfather. The problem is Matthew shows up out of nowhere with enough money to transport his entire family to American as freemen. The Puritans were a respectable group of immigrants, not exiles or debters like the future settles of Georgia and other areas in the next hundred years of New World settlement. Matthew had to come from a decent family. His wife Priscilla Grey, who appears to be of the famous Grey family the became Earls of Kent. Her father inherited the Earlship while he was very old because of a strange circumstance involving a cousin twice removed dying without issue and he being the next in line (I doubt he even knew). The Earlship was a bit of a mess in the 100 years leading to this inheritance, as the Earls even choose to live as private citizens as the title carried with it no land or power because of a gambling problem with a previous Earl. I?m getting off-tangent so I will swing back, but there?s a lot more info I can give you on all of this.
Anyway, there is no known history of Matthew?s ancestry. There?s a lot of info that became assumed during a family reunion celebrating the 300th anniversary of his birth in 1901 in NYC but it isn?t accurate. The DNA is pointing towards a strange connection that goes way back with a Smith family as well as a more recent connection with a Cloud family ? both originating in the Warwickshire area. I think it makes sense for my Grants and the relevant Smiths to be connected hypothetically starting now while we wait for science to answer these questions in the next 20 years. It is my guess that these Smiths, Clouds & Grants (as well as a Crenshaw, Riseley & Burns family) all descend from an Anglo Saxon nobleman that lived during the Norman Conquest (before surnames) and was probably a member of the Kingdom of Wessex or Mercia. This nobleman will be a member of the family that all L-47* members descend from which I expect to be of Frisian or Belgian origins. They hit England either as Celtic members of the Roman XX Legion or as Anglo-Saxon Lords c.600 AD.
Sound crazy?? My lineage starting with Matthew and ending with my great-grandfather is below. I am anxious to hear what you think!!
Matthew Grant (Oct. 27, 1601 in England-Dec. 16, 1681 Windsor, CT) married first , Priscilla Grey (1601-Apr. 27, 1644 Windsor, CT) on Nov. 16, 1625 in England. Married secondly Susanna (Capen or Chapin) Rockwell (Apr. 5, 1602-Nov. 14, 1666 Windsor, CT) in Windsor, CT, on May 29, 1645. She was the widow of Deacon William Rockwell and probably the daughter of Bernard Capen. They did not have any children, allow Susanna did have children from her previous marriage. On Mch. 20, 1630, he embarked with his family on the " Mary and John " at Plymouth, Eng. , and reached Boston harbor May 30, 1630. He settled at Dorchester, Mass., and was admitted a freeman May 18, 1631 ; but, with many others, he disliked the close union of church and state that characterized the colony of Massachusetts Bay, as well as the growing tendency to establish the government in the hands of a privi- leged class and to minimize the voice of the people in the conduct of their own affairs. Accordingly, in Oct. 1635, he went overland to the Connecticut River, with the party that prepared for the settlement of Windsor, although his family probably did not remove to Windsor until the following April. There, freed from the trammels of a royal charter, he assisted in forming a true democracy, the germ from which American political institutions have grown. His lot was in the Palisado, next the town lot. This he gave to his son John, with whom he spent his declining years. It is said that he was a carpenter. He was the first, and for many years the principal, surveyor; deacon of the first church; recorder (town clerk) 1652-77; townsman (selectman) many years, frequently receiving the highest number of votes; on the committees to lay out the bounds between Windsor and Hartford in 165 1 and 1660, and to view the state of the town in 1651 and 1654. The absence of records makes it impossible to give a complete list of the offices he held, but he was one of the important men of the town. Of him Dr. Stiles says, in his History of Ancient Windsor: " Few men, indeed, filled so large a place in the early history of Windsor, or filled it so well, as honest Matthew Grant ; his name figures in almost every place of trust, and the early records of the town show that his duties were always conscientiously performed." In 1654 he compiled "A Book of Records of Town Ways in Windsor." He was also the compiler of the " Old Church Record," which has furnished the basis for the histories of most of the families of ancient Windsor. He was a type of the best settlers of New England, and left to his descendants an untarnished name and the example of an unswerving fidelity to the public trusts com- mitted to him, for he quaintly comments on his own work: " I have been careful to do nothing on one man's desire."
John Grant (Sep. 30, 1642 in Windsor, CT-July 22, 1684 Windsor, CT) married first Mary Hull (Oct, 8, 1648 Windsor, CT-June 29, 1720) dau. of Josiah Hull and Elizabeth Loomis, on Aug. 2, 1666.

Married secondly Mindwell (Lyman) Strong (July 13, 1714 Northampton, MA-1791) in 1786. She was the widow of Jacob Strong, Jr.
Ambrose Grant (Sep, 14, 1747 Litchfield, CT-Dec. 7, 1816 Litchfield, CT) married Hannah Mason (Feb, 12, 1745/6 Litchfield, CT-July 3, 1832 Litchfield, CT) daughter of John Mason and Lydia Cook, in Litchfield, CT, on Nov. 20, 1771. Resided in Lithchfield and worked as a tythingman, surveyor, lister, fence viewer. Served in the Revolution (his musket being in the possession of the author Arthur Hastings Grant c. 1900) but was taken ill about the time the British took N. Y. C. and went home. He had prisoners stationed at his house until the close of the war.
David Grant (Feb. 25, 1778 Litchfield, CT-July 25, 1849(1850) Smithville Flats, NY) married Jemima Bancroft (May 30, 1781 Torrington, CT-July 22 (23, 25), 1863 Smithville Flats, NY); daughter of Ephraim Bancroft and Jemima Loomis in Litchfield, CT (Torrington), 1805.

"One of the tragic incidents connected with the early settlement and history of the Boone's Lick country was the killing by the Indians of Jonathan Todd and Thomas Smith, two settlers from Fort Hempstead, in Howard county, in the year 1813. Todd and Smith had gone out from the fort to hunt for some horses, which, they thought, had strayed away. The country was alive with Iowa Indians, also Sacs and Foxes, very hostile and very smart. --- These settlers wandered away in search of their animals (which had really been stolen by the Indians) until they were beyond the reach of aid from their comrades in the fort. --- One account says that they were decoyed away by the Indians.--- When the settlers had reached a point in this township on section 27, township 49, range 14, now on the farm of Sampson S. Wilhite, Esq., they were fired on by the Indians, and after a hard fight both were killed. --- After they were killed the Indians cut off their heads and cut out their hearts and stuck them up on poles near the path. --- Todd and Smith were the first whites killed in the Boone's Lick country."

|82|| FRANK SEGEL SMITH, M. D. Among the able physicians of Johnson county, Illinois, whose lives are devoted to the benevolent work of alleviating the sufferings of humanity, none stands more prominent than Frank Segel Smith, M. D., the pioneer physician and surgeon of the Cypress neighborhood, and a member of an old and honored Johnson county family which has been well known here for nearly a century. p. 699|
Dr. Smith was born October 24, 1866, on a farm in West Vienna, Illinois, and is a son of Millington S. and Mary (Davis) Smith.
William Smith, the grandfather of Dr. Smith, was born in Tennessee, and settled on a farm in Johnson county in 1820 or earlier. He reared a large family, and two of his sons, John E. and Barney S., served in the Union army during the Civil war. Millington S. Smith was born on the homestead farm in Johnson county in 1827, and was first married to Miss Mary Davis, who died in 1870, leaving four children, namely: Professor W. Y., graduate of the Southern Illinois Normal University, and now a well-known educator of Delhi, Ohio; Mrs. Viola Brown, who died in 1900; Millington J., now residing in Texas; and Dr. Frank Segel. Millington S. Smith married for his second wife Rebecca J. Ring, and to this union there were also born four children, as follows: Charles H., a railroad engineer; Walter A., also a railroad engineer, running out of Carbondale, Illinois; Paul, who resides in Marion, Illinois; and Pearl, twin of Paul, who lives in Harrisburg.
Frank Segal Smith received his preliminary educational training in the public schools in the vicinity of the home farm, later entering the Southern Illinois State Normal University, at Carbondale, from which he was graduated in the fall of 1884. At that time he began teaching, and continued to follow that profession in Illinois and Missouri for eight years, in the meantime pursuing his medical studies assiduously. In June, 1892, Dr. Smith entered the Kentucky School of Medicine, at Louisville, Kentucky, and after graduating therefrom with the degree of M. D. began the practice of his profession in the country three miles northwest of Cypress. In 1899 he went to Buncombe, Illinois, where he continued to practice until 1906, and in that year returned to Cypress, and now has a practice covering a five-mile radius. Possessed of a fine medical library, he is a close student, continually reading up in his profession, and since commencing practice has taken a number of medical journals and magazines, thus keeping thoroughly in pace with the times, and is well posted on all new discoveries and methods in medicine and surgery. Deeply sympathetic by nature, and possessed of the broadest gauge of humanity, Dr. Smith has surrounded himself with many sincere friends, by whom he is worthily esteemed and respected. He is examiner for eight insurance companies and surgeon for the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad, and belongs to the American Railway Surgeons Association and the Johnson County Medical Society. Fraternally he belongs to the A. F. & A. M.; the M. W. of A., of which he has served twice as state delegate and once as national delegate; and the Illinois Brotherhood, of which he was a delegate to the national convention held at Denver, Colorado, in 1911. He comes of a deeply religious family, and is a consistent member of the Baptist church at Cypress.
On October 10, 1889, Dr. Smith was united in marriage with Miss Arrah M. Shaddrick, daughter of Linnfield and Julia (Hawk) Shaddrick, the former of whom still survives, while the latter passed away in 1880. Four children have been born to Dr. and Mrs. Smith, of whom two survive: Mary Hazel, who is seventeen years old; and Gladys Afton, fourteen years of age.

|84|| Smith, George William, lieutenant and acting governor, was born at "Bathurst," Essex county, Virginia, in 1762, son of Meriwether and Elizabeth (Daingerfield) Smith. He was a lawyer, and was member of the house of delegates for Essex, 1791-1794. He removed to Richmond City, where he was one of the leading lawyers, and a representative in the house of delegates in 1802-1808. In 1805 he was captain of the Richmond Republican Blues. He entered the privy council in 1807, and as lieutenant-governor became the acting governor by reason of the resignation of James Monroe, December 5, 1811. On the 26th of the same month he lost his life in the fire that consumed the Richmond theatre. He married (first) February 7, 1793, Sarah, fourth daughter of Colonel Richard Adams, and (second) Jane, widow of Meriwether Jones, editor of the Richmond "Examiner," and daughter of Dr. Read, of Hanover county. He left issue by the first marriage.-http://vagenweb.org/tylers_bios/vol2-05.htm||Smith, George William (I34625)

|91|| "In 1809, Andrew and his family went up the Missouri River with all of their possessions on a poleboat that Daniel Boone had used when sending salt, peltries, etc. to St. Louis.|
[The propelling power of this water-craft consisted of a very simple piece of machinery, to-wit: near the prow of the boat a long pole, made generally of some light, tough wood, with an iron hook fixed at the lower end, was thrust down into the water, angled slightly astern until it rested on the bottom, and the other end was adjusted to the arm. Against this the party or parties in the boat would push, walking toward the stern the length of the boat and then returning quickly forward and repeating the process.
[See picture of a replica vessel under Photos].
"The family reached Franklin township in Howard County on the morning of July 3, 1809, landing near [where a cabin would be erected later by] Amos BARNES [a shirttail relative]*.
"That portion of Howard County, which is now embraced in Franklin and Boone's Lick townships, was the first area settled by Europeans thereabouts.
"After their arrival and settlement, they found that they were truly in a wild country, and that their neighbors were very few. The family built a cabin and cleared a piece of ground, where they raised three small crops."
(* Amos BARNES [1790-1834]; his mother was Hannah TURNER, sister of the Thomas TURNER who married Catherine SMITH, daughter of JOHN SMITH and Rebeccah 'Annah' ANDERSON.
Amos married Dorcas KINCAID, daughter of Capt. David Greer KINCAID [1765-1831], after whom Fort Kincaid was named, one of the main three main forts in the area for protective shelter during the War of 1812; the others were Fort Cooper, and, the one in which our Andrew SMITH served, Fort Hempstead.)
In February 1813, as the War of 1812 impacted their region, Andrew and family had to chose to take refuge in either Fort Hempstead, in the Boones Lick Settlement, or on Loutre Island. The Indian war had commenced the spring before, and all the settlers were compelled to enter one of the forts or seek another location where they would be out of danger. Sixteen persons left the fort for St. Charles Co., but Andrew and Sarah determined to remain, and he was made first corporal in Captain Sarshall Cooper's* company. Among his kin in the fort were Reuben Smith, Thomas Smith Jr., Davis Todd, Elisha Todd, Jonathan Todd, and Levi Todd. Thomas SMITH, Jr. and Jonathan TODD would soon fall victims to Native unrest.
