    Notes 
    • Research of Linda Smith Cheek

      Christopher Smith and Elizabeth Mauldin were not married. Elizabeth was a sister to Mary Mauldin wife of Christopher Smith. Christopher and Elizabeth had illegitimate son Rucker who went by the name of Rucker Mauldin. It was said that Rucker Mauldin knew who his father was. Christopher and wife Mary Mauldin Smith also had a son named Rucker Smith who died 1805 in Edgefield District SC and lived near Rucker Mauldin. Rucker Mauldin descendants test same yDNA as Christopher Smith.

      This is the line of Neil Smith and I thought it was my line for many years until YDNA came out. I do not research this line anymore. Neil Smith has taken it up. LSC

    • From Research of Linda Smith Cheek

      I have much more on this family of Rev. Rucker Mauldin and his three wives if anyone is interested. Linda Smith Cheek

      Rucker and Nancy Posey Mauldin were first buried at Cleveland Park near the Creek, in Greenville Co., SC and when the park was remodeled they were moved to Carmel Church, Pickens Co., SC

      Rucker Mauldin(see ydna R-M269-08 same as Christopher "Kitt" Smith) is not really a Mauldin, but a son of Christopher Smith 1730-1818 and from early history said his mother was a sister to the wife (Mary Mauldin) of Christopher Smith and that would be Elizabeth Mauldin. I found this in research records at the George Archives and from Kate Lamote of MASS who gave me a copy of the family Bible. The bible is also at the Georgia Archives.
      This from research of Linda Smith Cheek
      Rucker Mauldin m. 1st and had the first 7 children
      Rucker Mauldin m. 2nd Susannah "Ann" Miller Moore and had Mary, Rev. Rucker N. and Elizabeth F. Mauldin--Rucker Mauldin m. 3rd Nancy Posey Smith
