This is the same Wm Smith as I found down at College Corner (OH/IN)? -
he lived about 3/4ths mile due north of town, on the Indiana side - as I
remember a descendant of his is still living in the home place. I had no
connection of him to the Church there (Lower Four Mile - about 1 mile
north of his place. Please give me more information on him.
