Notes on the Smith Family Written April 4, 1903 by William Smith II.


My birth:  William Smith II, I was born of Ralph and Ardinia Smith in the year 1867 on August 11th.  A noteworthy incident is the anniversary of the formation of my native county, Pittsylvania, one hundred years ago.

My father, a farmer, Ralph Smith, was born September 1, 1813. His parents were George K. Smith and Susan Smith (nee Adkins) The fatherof George K.was George Smith (an error according to family tradition)(By BlanfordTowlerAnderson)

The following are my aunts and uncles on my father's sideviz. Jabez, Booker died in his 28th year and worth about $12,000. He was a tobacconist.  Polly Smith married Mark Anderson; LetitiaSmith married
Ambrose Rucker; Nancy Smith married Watt Otey Anderson.  The latter were parents of Capt. Edward Anderson of the U.S.A. and how at West Point.  (Later he was Brig. Gen. Edward Anderson & died Nov.
2, 1937.  He retired several years ago and lived in Jacksonville,Florida.  He married 1st Henrietta Sands of Washington and New York– divorced her and later married Amelie Duncan, a daughter of Fannie SmithDuncan – the latter a daughter of William Smith, son of George K. Smith- By: B.T. A.)

William Smith Sr. married Rebecca Hodnett (She was an aunt of Asa Hodnett, sheriff of Pittsylvania County, Virginia).

Elizabeth Smith married Naaman Mahan; Rhodia Smith married George Reynolds.

My grandfather George K. Smith died in 1845 having made his will in1842.  In 1842-1843 he owned including the lands inherited from his son Booker who died single, about 1700 acres on Tomahawk Creek.  His estate valued at about $17,000.

My father during his single manhood taught a private school for a few months.  He was not considered a scholar and was what we might say was not highly educated.  This statement applies equally as well to my dear mother whose eyes are now dim with years and whose limbs andbody are weary from her unsurpassed energy exerted in life.

Father was tall, about six feet and manly, yet he was not fond of strife nor contentious, somewhat reserved and sought not public honors, hence unknown politically.  He was of an age, that exempted him from servicein the Civil War.  (War between the States) of 61-65 but nevertheless furnished two sons, Booker and George, who made valiant soldiers for States Rights.  The former never returning after cessation of hostilities to his father's fireside, having died in prison at Newport News, Virginia. He hath no love for the President of the Confederacy, but was an ardent admirer of Jackson and Lee.  While believing in States Rights he thought the South erred in seceding.

He was a good and upright business man such that he made ample and comfortable provisions for a large family and in 1894-1895 when he made advancements to his ten living children his estate was valued at $12,000 but in reality was worth $16,000 to $18,000.

He died at the advanced age of 88 years, four months and seven days, leaving a large family, widow and a concourse of friends to mourn his loss.

His mother, Ardinna Smith (nee Wright) was a descendant of Thomas Wright who she says, to her best information came from Bedford County, Virginia.

Thomas Wright married Sallie (alias Sarah) Pullen and of said marriage the following children were born:  Peggy married a Mahan; John P.Wright;  Christopher Wright; Polly married a Rorer; Joseph Wrightand William Wright.

Christopher Wright my grandfather married Betsy DeBoe of which marriage the following children were born:  Thomas Wright; Jno. Wright; Ardinia, my mother; Sarah; Polly; Elizabeth; Joseph; Christopher; William Abram; Abitha generally called Bee and Lucy.

The following lbiography of Clement Lanier is from the site accessed 8 Feb. 2014.


6 Clement Lanier 1737 - 1812
+Hannah ???? - Bef 1812

Clement was born in Brunswick County, Virginia as shown in a
record in the Library, Richmond, Virginia. "A Roll of Captain Bronaugh's
Company, July 13, 1856, shows "Clemt Lenore", drafted 1755 in Brunswick, VA
at age 18, size 5-5 1/2, Trade, Planter, Country, Virginia. Description,
thin faced, of light hair."

He died in November or December of 1812 in Rowan County, North Carolina
where he and his family had moved in 1783. He married in Virginia, Hannah
??, who died before 1812. Clement's will of January1, 1813, proved in
November 1820 in Rowan County, NC named sons John, Clement,Jr., Lewis,
William, Joshua, Seth, Daughter Rebecca Hardester, and son Elijah.

From this we see Clement Jr who probably the groom in the marriage bond was
prob born ca 1780 and alive in 1820. I would think the David Miller named on
the Rowan Co bond to be about the same age.

There was the Hon, David Miller b 5 Feb 1775 at Boones Fork in Rowan Co. son
of William Miller and Mary "Polly" Eldridge. It appears David may have been
the Justice of the Peace in Rowan.

Cossum Bennett was born Jan 29, 1687. Cossum was a minor when his father, William, died. Daniel Field was appointed trustee by Cossum's father "for the good of my son to advise and instruct him in the management of his estate." Approximately one year following the death of his father, Cossum petitioned the court to release Daniel Field as his trustee.

D & W 3, pg. 210. COSSOM BENNETT son and executor of WILLIAM BENNETT humbly sheweth that your petitioner was of the full age of seventeen 29 January last and having received my father's estate of DANIEL FIELD, administrator, during my minority, instant, prays that DANL. FIELD may be discharged from the same.
23 Feb. 1703/04. Acknowledged.

Shortly afterward, the following deed appears.

D & W 3, pg. 273. 27 Sept. 1704. MARGRETT HART of Stafford County to COSSUM BENNETT and JOHN HUDSON. For a consideration already received. My interest of the within land according to the last will and testament of WILLIAM BENNETT.
Signed: Margaret Hart
Wit: NATHL. POPE, GEORGE ESKERIDGE
27 Sept. 1704. Acknowledged by MRS MAGARET HART.

Note that the will of William Bennett gave Cossum's sister Margaret, William's plantation in Stafford Forest. One might therefore assume that the Margaret Hart referred to in the above deed is Cossum's sister. That may not be correct.

Daniel Field, trustee for Cossum Bennett also had a sister named Margaret, who married Edward Hart. Therefore, it is possible that the Margeret Hart is Daniel's sister, not William's daughter. Many sources identify Henry Cossum as Margaret Field's first husband. I have not confirmed this information, but it does explain the source of the name Cossum. A man named Henry Cossume did in fact live in Westmoreland near the Machotick River, the same area where the Bennettts lived as evidenced by the following deed.

I have not researched deed records for Henry Cossume, so further investigation in that direction might prove fruitful.

Magaret Field married Edward Hart, presumably after the death of Henry Cossum. Edward Hart was Justice of the Peace for Stafford County, Virginia, in 1702. On September 4, 1703, an inventory of the estate of Edward Hart was filed by his widow, Margaret Hart. After the death of Edward Hart, Margaret married Charles Ashton, who is the grantor in the deed mentioned above. Note also the name of the grantee, Joshua Hudson.

Margaret's marriage to Charles Ashton, and her prior marriage to Edward Hart are evidenced by the following Stafford County deed.

7 Jul 1706. MARGARET HART of St. Paul's Parish in Stafford Co., to CHARLES ASHTON of Washington Parish, Westmoreland Co., for £50 sells 500 acres, the said ASHTON intending by the sufferance of God Almighty the said MARGARET HART to espouse, marry and to take to wife. July 10 1706, this deed recorded between MARGARET HART and CHARLES ASHTON, GENT.

Proof that she is the sister of Daniel Field is contained in the following deed in Westmoreland County.

Book 4, page 165. Jan 22, 1708. MARGARET ASHTON, widow of CHARLES ASHTON, Dec'd., to his sons BURDETT and CHARLES ASHTON. Her 'loving brother DANIEL FIELD ' to be her attorney.

The deed from Margaret Hart to Cossom Bennett and John Hudson was dated Sept. 1704. John Hudson is the brother of Joshua Hudson mentioned above. Since Edward Hart died in 1703, Margaret (Field) Hart was a widow at the time and had not yet married Charles Ashton. Therefore she could deed property in her own name. Also, it seems significant that Magaret Hart does not refer to William Bennett as her father in the deed. Since her brother Daniel Field was trustee for Cossum during his minority, it may very well be that Margaret obtained property from her brother that had been willed to Cossom and was simply conveying the property back to Cossum upon his reaching majority.


In 1708 Cossum Bennett, Catherine's then husband, relinquished his interest in the estate of Charles Ellis to the widow, Joyce Ellis. This record confirms the identify of Catherine Ellis as the daughter of Charles Ellis. Stafford Co. Book Z, p. 419.

Eliza Riley may be the daughter of Nathan Riley and Sarah Briggs. This information is not verified.
