I have a working theory that my 3rd great-grandfather, William B Smith, was a son of Asa Smith.  Asa and John are DNA decendents of Andrew Smith or a sibling. Asa and his wife migrated to Trumbull County, Ohio around the time Trumbull County was formed in the Connecticutt Western Reserve.  He and his wife Olive had one living daughter born 1819 in Massachusettes.  They are found in the 1820 census in Bristol, Trumbull County, Ohio.  They had a second living daughter in 1829.  While no document found it is possible they could have had a living son in 1827.  The first daughter being born one year after marriage, the conjecture is they had lost children in between.  Brother John migrated, probably after the death of their father in 1823, and was living near them with his new wife in 1830.   

I am interested in any DNA connected decendents of Andew Smith that lived in Ashtabula and Trumbull County Ohio during this period of time.
