John Smith

NOTES: The names of John and Charity Smith were obtained from William Smith's death certificate when it was in the possession of Daisy Smith Truell (his granddaughter, sister of the first J. Avery Smith). Researcher Miles Gordon writes that 1880 Census records indicate that the parents of both John and Charity Smith were born in New Jersey, but it's not clear who at that late date would have had certain knowledge of this. (Mr. Gordon's notes tend to disregard the forward direction of time.)x
