    Married Not married 
    Notes 
    • Research of Linda Smith Cheek

      Christopher Smith and Elizabeth Mauldin were not married. Elizabeth was a sister to Mary Mauldin wife of Christopher Smith. Christopher and Elizabeth had illegitimate son Rucker who went by the name of Rucker Mauldin. It was said that Rucker Mauldin knew who his father was. Christopher and wife Mary Mauldin Smith also had a son named Rucker Smith who died 1805 in Edgefield District SC and lived near Rucker Mauldin. Rucker Mauldin descendants test same yDNA as Christopher Smith.

      This is the line of Neil Smith and I thought it was my line for many years until YDNA came out. I do not research this line anymore. Neil Smith has taken it up. LSC
