Is Jacob Smith b 1741 of Prince William VA the parent?
My DNA test suggests that Charles C. Smith's parents are Jacob Smith Jr. (b. 1741 in Prince William County, Virginia, USA, d. 2 Apr 1805 in Edgefield, Edgefield, South Carolina, USA)(Revolutionary War Veteran) (at least one confirmed DNA connection) and Sarah "Sallie" Butler (b. 1741 in Dettingen Parish, Prince William, Virginia, USA, d. 29 Aug 1817 in Cloud's Creek, Edgefield, South Carolina, USA)(at least three confirmed DNA connections). I also have at least three confirmed DNA connection to Sarah Butler's mother, Sarah Mary Mason and at least three confirmed DNA connections to Sarah Butler's father, Gen. William Butler. My DNA testing was done by ancestry.com, and that is also where I have my tree. Also, in searching the Smith's in the Edgefield location, Jacob Smith Jr. seems to be the only possible candidate for the father of Charles C. Smith.
