I was first (in 2010 after receiving my DNA test results) to propose that Rucker Mauldin was son of Christopher Smith and Elizabeth Mauldin. Linda Cheek Smith has Rucker being born in Maryland. I believe he was born in Virginia. Elizabeth, her sister Mary and Christopher Smith (Mary's husband) grew-up near each other in Virginia and may have been friends when they were kids.
And you were RIGHT!!! I remember looking in the Cheek book and seeing that huge section on Rucker Mauldin-Smith. Wonder if the discrepancy in Maryland v Virginia could be due to the changing border between the states. Anyway, bravo to you!
