      Letter of Charlie White, dated Feb. 11, 2000 to Jane Beekman contained the following information: George was a bit of an anomaly, for I havent found any records for him in Randolph County, hence I dont know whether he ever lived there. He was living in Overton County Tennessee in 1805 when he gave his power of attorney to brother William Smith concerning their Uncle William Smith's Shenandoah County Virginia estate. He was still in Overton County in Sept. 10, 1822 when his wife Elizabeth filed a dismissal of petition for divorce and alimony from George by her next friend David Smith (probably her son). A subsequent wife, as widow, Nancy deeds as gift to 3 of the heirs of George Smith Sr. all my dower and all other of his real and personal property for $250., otherwisse qitclaims her rights to the estate, and gives Richard, John or George C. Smith possession of the house 1st November next in good order. The deed was signed May 13, 1839, acknowledged Sept. 2, 1839 and recorded in Overtn County Deed F:76. A listing of children give by Tennga S. Conner, Dayton, TN., in an unidentifed Heritage Book which appears to have dealt with Overton and Fentress Counties in Tennessee.
