My Smith surname has hit a brick wall in SW Virginia with James Henry Smith and Esther Kilgore.  James was born Aug 1824 and died after the 1910 census. I cannot make a definite parent connection.  I am working on documentation to prove the line.

Hi my maiden name is Smith.

I am tying to find my grandfather, Charles Austin Smith Or maybe his name was Austin Charles?  I know he lived in St .Louis Missouri in 1917 and was married to Cora O. Johnson, Werner (widow of Christ Werner d. 1914)Cora and my grandfather had a child by the name of Robert Charles Smith ( my father ) in 1917. Cora also had 4 daughter with Christ Werner.


I also know he was in the military as my father received benefits from his fathers military pension.

Cora died in 1918 and my father lived with Cora's parent Abner and Nancy Johnson until1922 when Cora's mother turned my father over to the Board of Children's Guardians for adoption. He was never adopted and grew up in an orphanage. What ever happened to Charles Austin?

Recent discovery for George Elbert Smith. (1875 - 1955)  On his death cert his mother is listed as Louise not Margaret.  He was born in Viroqua, WI and died in SD.

I can't find anything definitive on his father, James A or mother Louise.

Margaret, I have found the burial place of Mary Rench Smith. Oct. 11, 1825 - Jul. 23, 1892

Foster Cemetery, New Hampton, Harrison County,Missouri. Find A Grave Memorial# 21330081

And of Dunam Smith Sep. 12, 1826 - Jan. 18, 1895

Find A Grave Memorial# 21330062

They are in the same cemetery, and are both mentioned on the same marker.

Peter, on the other hand is a bit of an inigma. I have found one, but I'm not sure it's him.

Still trying to find family of Dunham Smith, born 12 Sep 1926 at Mt. Gilead, Marrow Co., OH. 1850 lived at Liberty, Henry Co., IN.  1860 lived in Jefferson, Henry Co., IN. 1870 lived at Athens, Gentry Co., MO. 1880 lived in Dallas Twp., Harrison Co., MO. Died 18 Jan 1895 at Harrison Co., Missouri. I show him married twice; one to Mary M. Rench 22 Nov 1846 and second to Sarah J. Flin 03 Jul 1883.  I have his family once they were in Harrison Co., MO but have not found were his son Peter was buried (1855-1959 in Indiana). I can not find his parents. Anyone know anything about this family?

Still looking for ancestor Josiah Thompson Smith born 1812 in PA.  He's my primary 'brick wall' after 30+ years of research.  Lived in Hamilton County, OH 1832-39, Des Moines Co. IA 1839-52, Siskiyou County California 1852-62, Los Angeles CA 1870.  Connected with Cummins family in Ohio.  It's possible the name "Milton" is associated with the family as descendants carried that name as a middle name.  There is info on Ancestry about him, but it is my work (but not submitted by me).

Hi: my maiden name was Smith.  I have only gotten back as far as my gr gr grandfather Schuyler Ephriam Smith b 1819 in Stanstead Plain, QC m Lucinda Robinson Blake b 1817 in Island Pond, Vt.  I think they were both hatched from eggs as I have never been able to go any further back.  Most of the family branches lived in the NE area & still do.

My paternal grandmother's maiden name is Smith. After years of frustration I recently found her family in the census on Ancestry.
