  • Notes 
    • "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.
