  • Notes 
    • "Something about some Smiths" by David A. Harris 1969 pages 29, 30, 31 and 32 about Nathan Smith his account of the family matches the obituaries I have found. I only copied the pages that pertained to my Smiths so I do not have the entire book.

      In his book it states that Nathan is the son of Samuel Smith 08/29/1765 in an Inn in Albemarle Co., Virginia on the way to North Carolina and Mary Jarrett, and the grandson of Joseph Smith born 04/01/1730 and Rebecca D'Eath 04/01/1739 both born on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

      In this book David A Harris lists the children of Samuel as Nathan, Saul G., Aaron, Bacchus J, Bennett A., Larkin, Samuel C., Cornaro Drayton, James H., and Althea Paulina.

      David A Harris also lists as his sources "The House of Smith" by A F Smith and Nettie Smith 1936 and 1958.
