  • Notes 
    • Absalom Smith Sr. was born in 1787, probably in Buckingham Co. (area is now part of Appomattox Co. near Wreck Island Creek), son of Obadiah Smith. Absalom Smith Sr. died in either late 1817 or early 1818, after moving his family from Montgomery Co., VA to Jefferson Co., TN. Ann Lockhart was the daughter of William Lockhart and wife Jane, and Ann was born 31 Mar 1788, and died after the 1860 census. As a widow, Ann married a John Brown in Jefferson, and was widowed a 2nd time. Ann's mother Jane's maiden surname is unknown, but she was a widow when she married William Lockhart. William Lockhart died in 1790, and Jane subsequently married a third time to a John Hardeman. Her third husband also died. Jane migrated to Jefferson Co., TN with her daughter Ann and son-in-law Absalom Smith, and Jane's will is on file in Jefferson Co. where she died in 1836.-
