In Washington Co VA, 1850c, there is an aged James Smith, 80y old (b c1770): HH41 and repeated in HH156: SMITH, Abram, 48; Sarah (Linticum), 40; John, 23; James, 17; Amanda, 15; Thomas, 13; William, 11; Abram, 9; David, 7; Margaret, 2; James, 80. In the repeat (HH156), James is listed as age 74.

I have seen that his wife was Catherine Snodgrass, but no source to back this up. It does appear, however, that this family of Abram/James had some Montgomery Co VA connections. The grandson of James, Thomas Smith (above) married in WCV on 13 Jan 1863, Nancy Booth, 21, d/o Wm. Booth & Margaret - Boothes in that area are from Montg. Co. VA originally. There was an Ann/Annie Smith in the neighbourhood that married David McNew, s/o George McNew Sr.
