I had a DNA test made and it said Levi Turner Smith born in Ga in Henry co Ga in 1832 was an ancestor although it did not say he was a direct ancestor. I know my direct ancestor was David Rauther Smith born 1800-1810 and who married Sarah Austin in who was born in 1832 in Ga and they married about 1830. The first record I can find about them is the 1830 Newton co Ga census. Newton co Ga is next to Henry co Ga. Henry co Ga was formed in 1821 so there was no 1820 Ga census and Newton co Ga was formed later in 1821 from Henry co Ga and other counties so the 1830 census was the first census for Newton co Ga also. Apparently Wells Smith and David Rauther Smith might have been brothers or maybe their fathers were brothers or their grandfathers were brothers. Would you know who the parents were of Wells Smith or where he was from before he went to Georgia etc. Any information you could send me to help connect these two Smith lines would be greatly appreciated. Would you send me the pictures you have of your Smith ancestors? Thanks, Ross Smith
