Subject: [BRE] William R. Smith genealogy
Date: Sat, 16 Sep 2006 19:37:40 -0600

Does anyone have information about William Rose Smith, born between 1750 – 1760?
He lived in Franklin County, Virginia, moved to Union County, Indiana and then
in 1825, moved to Putnam County, Indiana. He was a Minister of the Gospel and
might be the minister, William Smith, briefly mentioned in Rev. Merle Rummel’s
“The Virginia Settlement or the Four Mile Church of the Brethren.” At his
death in 1839, he was married to Martha (unknown last name). Additionally,
some members of the Four Mile COB also moved to Putnam County. Does anyone
know if COB church records exist or are available from that time period in
Putnam County. (1830s+) and if so, where I can access them? Any help is most
appreciated. Thank you. Janie Smith
