REVEREND PETER SMITH
This page and all others pages
at this site are an attempt to pay tribute to my Smith ancestors.
In 1974 my Father gave me a hand-written record of Rev. Peter Smith and his children. Included in this record were only Rev. Peter Smith's name, date of birth, wife's name, her date of birth, date of their marriage and both of their death dates. All of his children were listed in the same manner. Rev. Peter Smith's sixth child, Abraham, along with his wife and their children, were all listed the same. Also included was one of Abraham's sons, William Werden Smith, and family. William Werden's son, Marcellus L. Smith, had a daughter, Edith Mote Smith, who is my Grandmother.
No locations of events were noted on this record and my father had no additional information.
In 1998 I formally started researching the Smith family. In just two years time I have met many wonderful cousins who have contributed a wealth of information which has been included in these web pages.
According to written history, Rev. Peter Smith was born in Wales. After much research and additional documentation from cousins, I found there is a discrepancy. His forefathers were born in the United States so it is unlikely that he was born in Wales. We are ever searching for more details regarding his mother and father.
As research on Rev. Peter Smith unfolds, we find that our Smith ancestors were well educated which enabled them to be engaged in a wide variety of careers.
My goal, and that of all the researchers involved, is to provide as accurate a history as possible with proper documentation of sources.
Hopefully information found on this web site will help with your research. Please do not take information from these pages as it has taken some researchers as long as twenty years to compile. We have provided the email addresses of the researchers and we would appreciate that you contact that person for more information. You may freely link to our page.
