    • The Schmidts have been called Hollanders and it has been widely accepted that they were from Germany although the exact region is to be determined. The first generation of ancestors in American were still using the Schmidt name and then changed it to Smith by the second generation. No theories as to the origin of the name were passed down. There is debate as the the migration path the Schmidts took. Some thought they may have been a part of the Palatine Immigration, but there were banners bearing the portraits of Johannes and Christeen that were displayed at the Smith family reunion in the 1800's which bore the statement, "Arrived 1686, Organized 1876". The genetic 'cousins' of Johannes Schmidt, Mathias Schmid (b. 1689 d Aug 1753) were according to Sharla Smith, Alberdine Jontry Smith (who did most of the family research on her family and her husband's (Smith) family, the Schmidts left Germany because their land was purpose flooded to induce them to leave. They came with the Amish but were not themselves Amish. Schmidt was another form of Anabaptist. Also, since England helped them escape Germany and come to America, his decedents would not fight against England in the American Revolution and left for Canada.
