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.
For Margaret Kropf:
Margaret, I have found the burial place of Mary Rench Smith. Oct. 11, 1825 - Jul. 23, 1892
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.
Find A Grave Memorial# 66292412
I do hope this information help a bit, Margaret.
SMITH from Buckinghamshire - my branch came to Toronto in 1870s.
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.
I found where George Elbert Smith is buried. There is a memorial for him at Find a Grave. Witten Tripp County South Dakota, USA

I hope this helps you out bit.
My paternal grandmother's maiden name is Smith. After years of frustration I recently found her family in the census on Ancestry.
Comment by Barbara A Smythe, Jan 24, 2012
Smythe is my married name, but I have found that it might be Smith. My husband's grandfather was Charles M Smythe supposedly born in 1861 in Richland county Wisconsin. On his marriage record in 1895 he said his parents were J D Smythe and Elizabeth Williams. I have after years of research found a Charles M Smith with parents John D Smith and Elizabeth Williams who were married in 1844 in Marion county OH. This family is on the 1850 Marion OH census, 1860 Richland WI, 1870 Algona, Kossuth IA and 1880 Elizabeth was a widow on the Wesley, Kossuth IA census. I can not find Charles M on any of the census' with this family, but he married a Lottie Williams in 1886 in Clinton, IA listing parents John D Smith and Elizabeth Williams and another son of John D Smith and Elizabeth Williams married a Lottie V Williams in Richland, WI in 1897 with the same set of Smith parents and Williams parents. I have researched all of the children of this John D Smith family and do not find a Charles anywhere. This above information has too many coincidences. If anyone knows this Smith family please contact me.
