I have worked for many years to connect myself to my father son line, and I have been able to prove with civil war documents, marriage certificates, and census reports that I am the direct decendant of Richard Smith b. 1794 married to Mary. Son- Joseph W Smith - Walter J Smith - Roy E Smith - Ronald H Smith - Jeffery L Smith - Zachary E Smith ( me) . 

I am hoping I can get help finding his father. I believe it to be a realation to James G Smith who recieved land for his service to NC in the revolutionary war. Tax records show James G Smith living next to Richard Smith and James Smith.

Hi, Zachary. You are the perfect candidate, since you are a male Smith, to do a YDNA test.  That may tell you whether you match into any existing YDNA groups in the project.
