Robin & List -

Joseph Smith, of Warrington twp, York co,PA, son of John Smith, dec'd,
married 7 Dec 1752 to Rachel Beals, of Huntington twp, York co,PA, dau
of Jacob Beals, at Huntington MH, under auspices of Warrington MM.

On 20 Jun 1765 Joseph Smith & hw Rachel & children Isaac, Jacob, Abraham,
Nathan, Seth, and Levy, were received at Clifts MM, Calvert co,MD, on certificate
from Warrington MM, York co,PA.

On 5 Jun 1775 Joseph Smith & hw Rachel & children were received at
Hopewell MM, Frederick co,VA, on certificate from West River MM,
Anne Arundel co,MD.

I have seen no definitive proof of the parentage of Seth Smith of Ohio
but a good circumstantial case can be made that Joseph Smith & Rachel Beals
are his parents. This is supported by the IGI, reference FHL 538565.

According to some researchers the family of Joseph Smith & Rachel Beals
consisted of Jacob, Isaac, Abraham, Nathan, Seth, William, Caleb, Levi,
Mary, & George.

Marriages of the following children are recorded at Hopewell MM in the EAQG:

15 Aug 1776 Jacob Smith marr. Patience Ballinger, dau of Josiah & Elizabeth,
of Frederick co,VA
8 Jan 1778 Isaac Smith marr. Mary Allen, dau of Jackson & Betty, of Dinsmore
16 Oct 1783 Abraham Smith marr. Martha Payne, dau of George [& Rachel], of
Berkley co,VA
4 Jun 1789 Levi Smith marr. Alice Payne, dau of George & Rachel, of Berkley
17 Feb 1791 William Smith marr. Hannah Thompson, dau of William & Elizabeth,
of Frederick co,VA
9 Apr 1807 Mary Smith marr. John Griffith, of Ross co,OH, son of William &
Joanna, both dec'd
13 May 1813 Levi Smith marr. 2ndly Mary Rees, dau of David & Martha, dec'd,
of Berkley co,VA
21 Sep 1826 Levi Smith marr. 3rdly Mary Hackney, dau of Joseph, dec'd, & Martha,
of Frederick co,VA

Clearly from the EAQG Seth's brothers Abraham and William Smith were also members
of Newhope MM, Greene co,TN. Part of my interests lie in the fact that Hannah
dau of Abraham Smith & Martha Payne, married Samuel Stanfield (c1788-1835) and
named her two oldest children Abraham Smith Stanfield (c1809-aft.1860) and Martha
Payne Stanfield (1811-1887). This group was a part of the Quaker Migration to
from Greene co,TN. The Stanfields settled originally in Edgar co,IL with some
going on
to Marion co,IA.

A name sake of this Seth Smith was Seth Smith Littler, b.20 Feb 1804, Highland
d.18 Oct 1827, Fulton co,IL. The latter married Fanny Brown, 15 Apr 1823,
Fayette co,OH.
Their only known son was Nathan Littler (1825-1888), onetime member of the Iowa
Seth Smith Littler was the son of Samuel Littler (1773-1827) & Sarah Stanfield
This Samuel Littler is thought to have been a cousin to Seth Smith. Sarah
Stanfield was a
cousin to the Stanfields that came to Edgar co,IL.

The following Family Group Sheet is from my Littler Quaker Database. This info
has not been as thoroughly researched as I would prefer, so this is "for what it
is worth":

Subject: [Q-R] Seth Smith - 1800's VA/OH

Looking for information relating to

Seth SMITH (member of Hopewell VA MM) (b. 1787?)
son of Joseph SMITH & Rachel BEALS
married Elizabeth Littler

>From Quaker Ency.
in 1806 found in Highland Co. OH , I believe in
Fairfield Twp.

Rachel SMITH m. 1806 Nathan Linton in OH.
Ruth SMITH m. 1810 in OH.
other children????

I am wondering if Seth is related to either
Thomas SMITH or David SMITH; also found in
Fairfield Twp, OH. It is known that Thomas
SMITH was a Quaker.
