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.

1850 Census has two families of concern for me.

THOMAS SMITH with wife ELIZABETH they are Family #5

they live next door to a JOHN H. SMITH and wife Elizabeth

Also Family # 42


James Family and Thomas Family both went to St. Francis County Arkansas.

does anyone have any information about these families in any direction?

Yes, the U.S. census through 1840 is not particularly helpful unless one happens to be looking for the property owner!  Thanks you for the suggestions about Smiths DNA.  I'll will look into this.

Comment by Patricia Rose Enger on January 11, 2012 at 5:25pm


I agree completely.  Family Tree DNA and my "DNA Cousins" have been so helpful...except I still haven't found my connecting ancestor to our Immigrant Ancestor, Francis of Hingham and Taunton. 

Have you taken the Family Finders test?  I have, and that is fascinating - but no luck on my Smith yet... 

I would certainly agree with your recommendation!

My Smiths are from Massachusetts, descending from William, the emigrant who settled in Charlestown and died there in 1654 and his son Nathaniel who died in Haverhill in 1692.

I've been collaborating with my "DNA cousins" and it's been a great help!  I highly recommend joining the Northeast Smiths DNA group at familytreedna.

  In a US Census of 1790 through 1840 only the property owner's name is listed, with rare exception. Starting with 1850 all members of the immediate family are listed. Now to look for an 1860 US Census report...and, tragically, the 1890 Census was almost completely destroyed by flame and water.

I am currently looking for information on Elial C. Smith, born about 1822, probably in Ohio, who married Catherine Hamline.  The first census that Elial and Catherine show up on (that I have found) is 1850, when they and their children are living in Findley, Ohio.  They travelled to Michigan in 1854 and settled with their children, George Washinton Smith among those children, and show up in Salem Township, Allegan County, Michigan on 1870 and 1880 census.  I have not been able to find any information about the parents of either Elial C. Smith, or his wife Catherine (Hamline) Smith.  If anyone has any information, or ideas, I would be grateful the the help.  Thanks!
