Aaron A Smith b 1824 St Marys Auglaize OH



AARON A. SMITH was born in St. Marys township, Dec. 14th, 1824.  His father Henry A. Smith was a native of Delaware who came to Ohio with his mother when a boy, and lived near Cincinnati until his marriage.  In 1821, he came to Auglaize county and settled among the Indians.  He selected a farm in section nine, now within the corporate limits of St. Marys.  He endured many hardships in the development of his farm, but by unremitting labor and skillful enterprise he prospered financially, until death terminated his career in 1843, at the age of forty-four years.
     The mother of Aaron A. Smith bore the maiden name of Elizabeth A. Hinkle, and was born at Mill Creek, near Cincinnati.  She was the daughter of Captain Asa Hinkle who commanded a company of soldiers in the war of 1812.  Captain Hinkle was so favorably impressed with the quality of the land, and the lay of the country around St. Marys that he returned and entered two hundred and forty acres in section twenty-two.  These lands he afterwards distributed among his children.
