GGGrandpop George and the rest of us, My "Unknown Rogues" Gallery, The Surname List, The Finley Clan
With a name like Smith you're in genealogical trouble right from the start. This page is about the surname SMITH, it's founding father - George - and his descendants.
To make it easier to navigate this maze I've included an index (in the left frame). Pick a letter in the top frame and if I have completed that persons page it will be link colored.
But, if you've done any genealogical work you already know that no project, like this, is ever complete - It is always "Under Construction" ........
Browse to your hearts content. Everything here has good solid sources unless otherwise noted.
And now - off to the man that started the whole thing. I haven't been able to find his parents or siblings and even his birthplace is shrouded in mystery but he existed and he is my Great, Great Grandfather -
Anderson, Watts, Henderson, Kirkwood, etc. Harford County, Maryland folks - 1701 to present times.|
Calvert - The Lord Baltimore family, the founder of the State of Maryland.
Day - It all started with the Quaker line of Day's - John III, son of John, Jr., son of John, and like that. Mostly Maryland and Pennsylvania - 1730 to present.
Finley - James Finley built my house in Harford County, Maryland in the late 1700's. There is a lot of Finley stuff.
Hash - Hash's from all over the place. Did you know that Joseph M. and Sydney (Wyatt) Hash had 24 kids? And he lived to be 98. 1700 to present.
Kirkwood - An old Harford County, Maryland name. Most of the information was taken from the genealogical work of Annabelle Smith, great lady, no relation.
Stewart - Small file. I forget why I did this. It centers around James Stewart and Rachael Wycholl of Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Dates from 1696 to 1981. Mostly Harford County though.
Bond, Brice, Butterworth, Clark, Colegate, Fell, Johnson, Scott, Ward, and Wheeler. This one ties in with my Smith and Wheeler genealogies. Some rather distinguished Maryland families are represented here, William Fell of 'Fells Point', Baltimore City, fame and my ggGrandfather Daniel Scott, Land Surveyor to several of the Lord Baltimores.
Colegate, Few, Wheeler, and Whitaker - Harford County - 1680 to 1890. I do a lot of work with the old land tracts, leases and land patents in Maryland. I did this to keep the family relationships straight. The info came from deeds, patents, wills and probate records. I've been working on it for about 30 years.
I have inherited pile of pictures from relatives. Many of the folks in this picts nobody knows. Maybe you will ..
