Mother of Peter, Jr; Philip; Michael; William; George; Cassandra; John; Clara. She was known to run a musket/rifle boring mill during the American Revolution.

According to information I was provided some years ago, Peter Smith (d. 1773, White Deer Valley, Lycoming co., PA) left a widow, Catherine Smith (D. c1801, White deer Valley). A son was named Benjamin -- I don't have information about any other children. According to the information I have, an article was written about Catherine Smith. This article appeared in a book or periodical:

Shoemaker, Henry. "Catherine Smith, Forgotten Patriot of the Revolution," in Now & Then, Vol. V, p. 70.

I have checked PERSI and other sources, but ave been unable to locate a copy of the article. Any assistance would be appreciated.

In 1959, my great aunt, Miss Rachel Idel Smith researched and compiled a genealogical history of the SMITHs of DRIFTWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA... This story chronicals the story of Peter and Catherine's mill, lists Peter's brothers, and lists Peter and Catherine's progeny. I descend from Peter, Jacob, Daniel, J. Daniel, George Wash, Grant, Phyllis. I am anxious to share information.
Thanks in advance,

Looking for info on John Smith married Susannah Crist/Christ. They are named in a partition suit in Hancock co, OH in 1850 as living in Lycoming co, PA. Also listed is her brother John Crist/Christ. Parents of the Crists were John M. and Susannah Caup/Coup. I found a John Smith and Susannah on 1850 census but can find nothing else about them. Any help thankfully received. 1-4-2000

George, None of the names you mention fit my Smith Family file. I know exactly what you mean by the problems with the surname.

I know I picked your file of the RICKERS, but have we done the ENGLISH and the QUIGGLEs?

I just saw you message concerning the Smith family. I was wondering ifyou may have a connection. My great great grand fsther Was Arthur Milford Smith b Aug 21, 1880 died June 29, 1956 he was married to Hannah Welsh. He a brohter Warren Smith married to Alice Welsh and possibly a 2nd brother named Seth. His death certificate lists his parents as James Smith B Ca. 1844 (a Civil War vet) died about 1929-1932. He married to Elizabeth Carter. According to family tradition, James' father was killed in action during the Civil War and his father (or grandfather)was a Rev War Soldier. Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated. It is very difficult to trace the Smith family name.

Dear Georgie,

Saw your article re widow Smith of "Union County". I would be interested in seeing this article, if possible.
My 3ggrandfather, Jacob Smith b c1794 PA, m c1814 Elizabeth Grove b 1 Jul 1794 Union, PA. Their son, Daniel Smith b 27 Jul 1818 Union Co., PA m c1840 PA Mary Moore b 22 Feb Berks Co., PA. Daniel's son, George b 25 Dec 1840, born Lycoming Co., PA.

Would like to correspond with researchers of these lines. I have no earlier info for the Smith line. Elizabeth Grove was the daughter of Michael Smith, Indian fighter of PA. I believe Elizabeth's sister may have married a Lutz.
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide. Alice
