David there is a Daniel Smith that our ancestor must be named after. His name was Daniel Smith Hilton. He was born 1788 in NC. We have found a Daniel Smith connected through the above documents with obvious son in laws named Helton. There was another Daniel Smith that was a Cherokee Agent in TN agency around 1805 timeframe with Return Meigs. I know there is a connection between our families and will post anything we can find in relation to the two men just mentioned. Malinda Hilton had several children by a John Smith and was given 90 acres by him. She moved into Georgia and the last kid is named Smith. Those before him were all Helton. Trying to figure all of this out.
