  • Notes 
    • "History of Van Buren Twp. Wayne Co. MI'' (1977) page___ ''The Benjamin D. Smith family story (compiled by Roscoe C. Begole) was read at the 2nd Annual Reunion Sep. 1900 in Belleville, Wayne Co. MI. 8 of Benjamin & Elizabeth Smith's 10 children were still living. Benjamin Smith was born near Hoboken, NJ, the second of 5 children. His father was a farmer who as young man, was in charge of a gang of slaves on the Ryerson Plantation. In 1822, Benjamin married his neighbor, Elizabeth/Betsy Post. In April 1826 Ben & Betsy Smith moved to Parma, Monroe Co. NY. Others in their Smith & Post families eventually joined them in NY. The Smiths left NY in 1833 via the Erie Canal to Buffalo NY; then on steamer 'Shelden D. Thompson' to Detroit, MI. Jason Tyler in Wayne Co. MI traded his farm on Tyler Rd, to Benjamin Smith, so Ben's wife could live near her brother, Henry C. Post - as they had done in Parma NY.''
