Smith Genealogy - Chatham Co., NC

Welcome to my Smith web pages. I have another Smith line, not related to this one. Click here for more on the Smith family of Carter Co., TN.

My Smith lineage begins with Esther Smith (1765/70-1850) who married Wilson Gilbert in the 1790's in Chatham Co., NC. Esther is a child of Thomas Smith and Esther (---) who married before 1759. Thomas's parents are unknown. Some of the Smiths were Quakers.

Since this is such a very common name my interest in it is strictly limited to Chatham Co., NC in the 1700's and early 1800's.
