  • Notes 
    • Research of Linda Smith Cheek--

      This John Smith is not the one that died in 1822 with all the paper work on Ancestry. That John if anyone would take the time to read the paper work will see that John was mental with no family and state was handling his affairs.

      My John B. Smith left SC to Blount Co TN where his kin, Wm Wallace went. John married in TN had two kids then moved to Hall later Habersham Co GA where his brother lived. He and family are in the 1820 Hall Co Ga census with six children and when he died in 1822 his wife was pregnant and she moved to Laurens SC where family was on land her husband inherited from his father. Johns's wife Elizabeth was living in 1850 census with her son Wm Tucker Smith in Fork Shoals, Greenville SC.

      John's estate was adm by Daniel Ford, his kin.

      1820 census John Smith b. 1775 SC with wife Elizabeth b. 1776 TN living in Hall Co GA with 1 m 26-44 1F 26-44 2M u 10 1m 10-15 3F u 10
      So have 3 males and 3 females

      John Smith died in 1822 Habersham Co GA so there about 2 years as moved after 1820 census. Family to SC to be with family ca 1822-1823
      My James S. Smith was 13 years old when his dad died and mother did not marry again.
