DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM SMITH


As a tribute to her deceased husband, Marshall Ashby Smith Jr., Rosalie Coudray Smith made two trips to England to research the ancestors of her husband. The results of her research are published in the SMITH GENTES and the Smiths of England are recounted here. I cannot verify that the early generations of Smith in England are correct.

From Pioneers of Old Hopewell; Ralph Ege; 1908;

"To Andrew Smith may be given the honor of naming Hopewell township, and a short sketch of his history may not be out of place just here as he was the progenitor of a distinguished family in the early history of the township.  In the deed of Cornelius Empson of Brandywine Creek, now Wilmington, Delaware, to Andrew Smith dated May 20, 1688, the tract is called Hopewell, and when on February 20, 1699, application was made by the inhabitants north of the falls of the Delaware for a new township, they requested in the petition that it be called Hopewell.  He resided within the boundaries of old Hopewell township in the vicinity of the present site of the Hospital for the Insane now in Ewing township."

Smith.  Jane is named in other property transactions until 1816; in 1831, when Andrew deeds the remaining property to son, Timothy, Jane is no longer mentioned so it is assumed she died between 1816 and 1831.  Land transaction:  2 July 1801 - James Reed and Joanna of Amenia; 629 acres $2400; to Andrew Smith.

Seventy-two yearsago he accepted the third angel*s message under the labors of Elder J. O. Corliss. In the early days of the message he served the old Michigan Conference as director of the eleventh district, working in company with Elder James White. The first Sabbath that Brother Stuttle kept was the day that he met Lillie Dale Avery, who later became his wife. They lived a life of devotion to each other and to the cause they always loved so dearly. The past eight months, since the death of his wife, have been lonely ones for our brother, but rest came to him just as suddenly as it came to his dear wife. He was sitting in his chair reading his Bible, when hs head dropped forward and he was gone. He rests by the side of his wife, awaiting the call of the Life-giver.

    MISC.: FROM GENEVA DAILY TIMES 18 MARCH 1905
Growing tired, as it is said, of the monotony of farm life and longing for the excitement and amusement incidental with life in the city, Daisy Smith, thirty-five years old, wife of Frank E. Smith of Romulus, left her home and husband some months ago and came to this city to live. That's the prologue. Yesterday Frank E. Smith of Romulus, a prosperous farmer, came to town in search of his wife, in response to a letter, so he claimed, that he received from her several days ago in which she promised that if  he would come to the city and bring $25 with which to buy her new clothes, she would return to the farm with him. It does not follow that Smith parted with the $25, nor does he divulge the difficulties experienced in inducing his wife to return home. At any rate he must have met with a refusal for late yesterday afternoon, he secured a warrant from Judge Wyckoff charging his wife with being a vagrant and having no visible means of support. Chief Kane took the warrant and went out to hunt for the woman. He visited a place where she had been staying but was informed that she was out. He had reason to question his informant's veracity but decided not to search the house until later. He returned to the station and was followed shortly after by the woman wanted. She was informed that she was under arrest and was immediately arraigned, charged with vagrancy. She pleaded guilty and sentence was deferred upon her promise to return to Romulus with her husband. The couple left town last night. Judge Wyckoff gave the woman some good advice finishing with the statement that if she was ever found in the city again, acting as she had been during her recent stay here, she will be severely dealt with.
