I have been trying to answer you for two days and just couldn't post anything.
Sorry you are ill. What I have to tell you may make you well, at least I hope so.
Now, for the Smiths. Hugh Smith was married to Ann McGee, one of the daughters of the Kentucky Pioneer, John McGee, who came to Kentucky with the McAfee Party in 1774. John's wife was Mary McCoun, daughter of James Maccoun and Margaret Walker. For many generations, these Smiths and McGees would intermarry. Prudence McGee, another dau. of John married James Harvey Smith, abt. 1803. They had the following children: Mary (Polly) Smith
James H.M. Smith, b. abt. 1806
Ephraim Smith, b. abt. 1812
Prudence M. Smith, b. KY
George W. Smith, b. KY (non compus mentus)
John Smith, b. KY
Margaret Smith, b. KY
HUGH SMITH, b. KY
Jane Smith, b. KY
Unfortunately, I don't have a list of Hugh Smith and Ann McGee's children, but I do know that many of them went to Indiana to settle. I found this: In 1793, "James McGee, Robert and Samuel McAfee and James Currens, Samuel Forsythe and Richard Steele Jr. surveyed approximately 30, 000 acres on the White River in present day Jackson Co.,Indiana.
Upon their return home, they learned that Congress fefused to make any more grants. About 1809 James sold his land on the Salt River in Kentucky and purchased part of the land he'd surveyed in Indiana." So, some of the McGees did go to Indiana as well as the Smiths. These McGees would later go to Missouri from Indiana and settle near my Simpsons.
I hope this helps you out, Barbara, let me know.
