After James died in May 1820 in Harrison county, Ohio, Edith Markee married Francis Smith in Harrison County. They then moved to Coshocton County. Francis and Edith had at least 6 children.

The children of James and Edith Markee were:
William Markee who wed Miranda Johnson
Thomas P. Markee wed Lucinda Van Horn
James Markee wed Eliza Ellen Hilton, Eleanor Norris and Emaline Alloway
John Wesley Markee wed Permelia Davidson
Edith Markee wed James Hobby.

Edith SMITH d. 19 Jun 1869 Linton Tp., m., age 77, b. N. Carolina, p. Unknown, cod. Unknown, LR. Linton Tp., pgs. 11-12.
I believe that Edith Atkinson was the daugther of Thomas Atkinson and Ruth Harvey. From the Quaker records it list a Edith Atkinson born June 29, 1793.

Edith b. 6-29-1793.

Edith is buried with her second husband, Francis Smith in the Plainfield Cemetery in Linton Twp, Coshocton county, Ohio.
It list her as having died on June 19, 1868 and her age as 75 yrs 11 months and 19 days. By using the Birthday calculator it computes her birth date as June 31, 1792. It is off by a year, but still believe that Edith was the daughter of Thomas Atkinson and Ruth Harvey.
If use the date of death from the death record, it would be June 31, 1793 as her birthdate.

In the 1860 census, indicatates born in NC. pg 112A, Coshocton county, Ohio.

1813, 11, 23. Edith (formerly Atkinson) dis mcd
I believe this is when she married James Markee on Nov. 23, 1813, and she was then discharged.

Edith Atkinson Markee and Francis Smith had the following children:
Sarah Smith wed Benjamin Williams
Finley Smith wed Elizabeth Hawk (I think)
Francis A. Smith wed Sarah E. Wells
Daniel A. Smith wed Mary Barcroft
Charles Smith
Nathaniel Smith wed Susan Norris (I think) Nathaniel died during the Civil War.

Francis Smith was in the War of 1812. He was born in Virginia. His death record indicates that his mother was a Wells. I have not found his parents yet. A short obit indicates that he was related to an Edward Wells of Coshocton.
