Autosomal tester
John Preston Smith was in Orange Parsh, Orangeburg Co SC in 1840. One of his children, Ivy Eldridge Smith b 1836 died in 1904 in Lexinigton Co SC. (Of interest is that there is an IVEY Smith in 1800 in Orangeburg SC, related somehow). Also, in 1850, a Robert Smith m Levisa Malone is living nearby and he also seems to have come from Orange Parish, Orangeburg Co SC -a YDNA test of a male Smith descendant of both lines would tell whether this theory relationship is accurate. 

Son William Preston Smith b 1867 SC married Emma Talulia Wofe in 1900 in Florida. He can be found in 1900 Bronson, Levy county, Florida, as well as his brother Frank, then Watertown, Columbia County, Florida, and Bradford County, Florida

If you are a descendant of any of the above Smiths, particularly if you are a male Smith descendant, but all others welcome too, please come join the project
