Obituary found on the internet:

SMITH CAPT. JAMES L. SMITH (Age 71) MSC, USN (Ret.) Beloved husband of Barbara B. Smith, died May 2, 2010 at Park West Hospital in Knoxville, Tennessee. He was preceded in death by his father, Cecil Justin Smith. Survivors, among others deeply mourning his passing, are: his mother, Lena J. "Jackie" Smith; sister, Mary K. Morrill and family (in Missouri); sister-in-law Linda C. Kean and family (in Maryland, S. Africa and Florida); step-mother-in-law, Elizabeth Harcourt and family; extended loving family in multiple states. CAPT Smith took great pride in the fact that he served in the United States Navy for thirty-eight years, and distinguished himself by rising from the lowest enlisted rate to the grade of Captain. During this time, he was blessed with a growing number of officers junior to him, and enlisted personnel, who sought him out to be mentored; served three voluntary years in Vietnam; and as Commanding Officer of the Naval Hospital in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, wore a "dual hat" as the Joint Task Force Officer during the Haitian "exodus" and "influx" into Cuba in 1991. In addition to serving God in his every day life, he participated in many church Committees and activities. As a testimony to his faith and love for his fellow man, he used his own funds to build a church in Vietnam. He was raised in Michigan, graduated from George Washington University, and received his Master's Degree from Central Michigan University, which he accomplished in ten months while working full time as the Medical Construction Liaison Officer for the renovation of the old and building of the new National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland. CAPT Smith was a kind, loving, gentle, generous, patriotic and unselfish Christian who put God, his wife and family, and his country above everything else. He will be so sorely missed by his family and friends, leaving a great void that can never be filled. Due to complications at Arlington National Cemetery, he won''t be laid to rest until early September. In lieu of flowers, it is requested that donations be made to the National Kidney Foundation , 30 E. 33rd Street, New York, New York 10016. Due to complications at Arlington National Cemetery, he won''t be laid to rest until early September.

This family needs further research.

The family free on FamilySearch.org may be mostly correct. It shows James Polk Smith b. 28 jan 1844, but places his birth in Monticello, Dickerson Tp., Lewis Co., Missouri, where he died in 1920. All other records say he was born in Ohio. This tree makes him the son of Arthur E. Smith and Orpha Hull, from Adams Co., Ohio, who later lived in Brown Co., Illinois, from an Irish Smith family who settled in Adams, Co., Ohio. The tree shows eight children, with birth dates from 1864 (before the marriage of the parents) to 1885, all in Brown Co. Interestingly, the tree includes a photo showing six couples, consisting of John A. McCoy and his wife Nancy Perry, and five of their children: Hanna M..., Lucy, Elmina, George, and "Matt" (=Martha?).

Census:

1920: Highland Tp., Lewis Co., Missouri: James P. Smith age 76 is living with "Herbie" Smith family (this is Kirby).

1910, Dickerson Tp., Lewis Co., Missouri: James P? Smith and Melmina J. Smith.

1900 is very faded, Dickerson Tp., Lewis Co., Missouri: Jas ? P Smith, b. January 1844; Elmina b. March 1844 ? , mother of 11 children, of whom 7 are living; son William A. b. December 1876; daughter Lucy C. b. March 1885 (age 15), and son George T. b. September 1887 (age 12).

1890, Highland Tp., Lewis Co., Missouri, Veterans' Schedules, James P. Smith, Private, Co. E, 1st Ohio Artillery, service May, 1862 to April, 1863, disability chronic diarrhea for 25 years. (Thus, there should be a pension file!)

1880, Elkhorn Tp., Brown Co., Illinois: James Smith 35; Mina 34; Elizabeth ,15; John A. 13; James S., 11. Abby A., 8; Kurby ? , 6; William A., 3; Nancy, 1. Evidently the daughter Sabra, whose birth on 15 jan 1881 is recorded in Brown Co. (on microfilm of county birth index), died young. While the birth records (or the index to them) appear to be complete from about 1878, the last two known children, Lucy and George, do not appear, and we therefore suppose they were not born in Brown Co., even though the 1900 census reports that they were born in Illinois.

So far, this family has not been located in the 1870 census. They are not in Elkhorn Tp. or Lee Tp. in that year.

An entry in the Lewis County Journal (Monticello, Missouri) on 23 mar 1923 notes that "James P. Smith is spending a few weeks with his son W. A. Smith and family." In the same newspaper, Friday, 29 jun 1923, his obituary appeared: "James P. Smith Dies at State Hospital. Word was received here Wednesday morning by W. A. Smith that his father had died Tuesday night at the hospital at Fulton, where he had been the past three months. The body was taken to Louisiana where it was met by Tebo Smith who accompanied it to Lewistown where the funeral services were held Thursday at ten o'clock. James P. Smith was born in Ohio 76 years ago. He spent the first part of his life in that state and in Illinois, coming to Lewis County 31 years ago. He was a farmer and had lived in the western part of the county since coming from Illinois. He was a member of the Baptist Church and had been a faithful member. About two years ago he suffered a paralytic stroke which affected his mind and he continued to grow more feeble until death came. His wife died in 1910 and five sons and a daughter are left to mourn him: John of Tolona, W. A. of Monticello, Tebo of Louisiana, Jim of Lewistown, and Mrs. Lucy Covey of Montana. The family has the sympathy of many friends and other relatives." Presumably, "Tebo" is the son listed in the 1900 census as George T., and the place is the city of Louisiana in Pike Co., Missouri. Fulton is the county seat of Callaway Co., Missouri. Tolona and Monticello are in Lewis Co., Missouri. The date of death was 27 jun 1923, according to the death certficate, from acute dysentery, but the date does not agree with the obituary, which appears to place it on the preceding day, 26 jun 1923. According to the obituary, he came to Lewis Co., Missouri about 1882

[6295] per parent's birth place in 1880 census, for son John A. Smith b. 1868 IL, grandson of John A. McCoy b. 1825, with this family in 1880 census, #529 in Mt. Sterling Tp.

Jane SMITH       (ID #I17632)

(female)
Father: John (Laban?) SMITH (d. BEF 1868)
Mother: Mary MCCOY (b. ABT 1814, d. AFT 1880)

Family 1 :
  1.  Mary Alice SMITH (b. abt 1858, d. 2 AUG 1934)
Family 2 : James A. MCCOY (b. 1841, d. 21 FEB 1882)
Family 3 : Bartholomew HOBACK (b. 1 APR 1832, d. 7 APR 1893)

 

Her story is still very murky. One interpretation is that she married first a Francher or Fanshier, then married James A. McCoy. That would account for the step-daughter Alice Francher (born 1859, but her age may not be reported correctly— her presumed mother is on the 1860 census in Johnson Co., IA, still unmarried) living with James and Jane in the 1880 census. In the same household are three "nephews" surnamed Wright and Francher, perhaps children of a brother and sister of Jane's first husband. We have not been able to locate any of these people in the 1870 census.

We are indebted to Brea Mefford for providing information about Jane Smith and her marriage to Bartholomew Hoback. Through this marriage, Jane became a Civil War veteran's wife and then widow, and so information about her and her previous marriage is found in Hoback's Civil War pension file.

There are a few mentions in Brown Co., IL after 1880 of a C. S. Fanshier or Fanschier and a Tryphena Fanshier, his wife, as well as a couple of daughters. However, we have not been able to connect these to Jane Smith. Instead, internet sources identify them as Charles Skaggs Fanshier and his wife Tryphena Ann Fairchild. A brother of Charles Skaggs Fanshier, James W. Fanshier, married Mary Allie Smith, born in Iowa about 1858. James and Mary divorced in the early 1880's, and she remarried to Henry Collins in 1884. Could Mary Allie Smith have been the Alice Francher of the 1880 census? But if so, how is she related to the family of John and Mary McCoy Smith?

The unidentified "nephews" in the 1880 census were John Francher, age 4, and Oliver Francher, age 6 months. These would seem to be the children of James W. Fanshier and Mary Allie Smith who are identified on the internet as James S. Fanshier, born about 1876, and Oliver P. Fanshier, born 20 dec 1879 in Elkhorn Tp., Brown Co., IL. The other "nephew" was Afney Wright, age 18, still a complete mystery.

We speculate that Mary Allie (Alice?) Smith, who married James W. Fanshier, was the daughter (whether by a previous marriage or not) of the present Jane Smith, and thus properly the step-daughter of James A. McCoy. The children of this couple were termed "nephews" in the 1880 census, for lack of a better term to describe their relationship to James McCoy. Does the same convention apply to Afney Wright? We were unable to locate any other reference to him in other censuses, suggesting that he was recorded with some other name in 1870.

Father: Reuben SMITH (b. 8 JUN 1767, d. 25 SEP 1840)
Mother: Sarah Beach CLARK (b. 20 MAY 1773, d. 17 JAN 1834)

  5. +Joseph A. SMITH (b. 4 NOV 1825, d. 13 DEC 1913)

 

Will copy filed at Grant Co., Indiana shows the date of the will as 14 oct 1849, written at West Union, OH, and witnessed by G. W. Nixon and R. H. W. Peterson, naming wife Isabelle A. Smith, children Reuben C., John M., Joseph A., Mary A. Wilson, and Sarah C. Rees. The will was admitted to probate in Adams County, Ohio 30 dec 1876. It notes that the sons are under bond regarding the disposition of the family farm and payments to the daughters. Terms of the bond are not stated. The will copy was made in 1879, likely when questions arose about the terms of the estate. For the text of the will and the probate proceedings, click here. The probate records for Adams County were lost when the courthouse burned in 1910, so it is a happy accident that the text of the will is preserved in Grant County.

[5363] 1860 census, Adams Co., OH. In 1858, John B. Smith's son Reuben P. Smith says his uncle Joel was living in Brush Creek, Adams Co., OH, and will copy (Grant Co., IN, ?? sep 1879 notes township. But he may have died Grant Co., IN.

Joel J. SMITH       (ID #I14864)

(male)
Father: John B. SMITH (b. 19 MAY 1792, d. 9 SEP 1849)
Mother: Elizabeth CHAPMAN (b. 3 DEC 1797, d. 30 SEP 1853)

 

He chose Josiah I. Earhart, former probate judge in Davis Co., IA, to be his guardian 21 sep 1851, implying that he was still under age 21 on that date. On 31 mar 1852, he filed a petition in his own name to show cause why there should not be a final settlement of his father's estate, thus by that date over age 21. He is still in Davis Co. for the 1860 census, single at that time, and his whereabouts after that are unknown. One mention in connection with his father's probate includes the middle initial.

[11285] Sources differ as to what happened during the French and Indian Wars...one says Capt. Smith was taken to France and stayed there two years. Another says he was taken to Quebec as a prisoner and finally made his way to England. Ltr from Jean Cloud of Redwood City, CA, dtd 29 Jul. 1982, mentions that Smith was sent to England after his capture. "He appears in many record of the House of Burgesses in Virginia and in Quebec records".

The early records of Augusta, Rockingham and Botetourt counties in Virginia contain many references to John Smith and his family. Not all agree on the number of children and the following list, compiled from printed genealogies and church records, may contain some discrepancies.

There seems to be little doubt that John Smith was a very patriotic man and this trait was carried on by his sons.
