Thanks. I had looked at this Isaac before and cannot find any further documentation on him in Montgomery Co. And as you probably noticed there is no male in the household other than Isaac himself. Joseph Smith's age per other documentation puts his birth anywhere from 1800 to 1810. Since there is no 1820 Census, it is difficult to determine what happened to Isaac Smith & his family because Isaac is not listed on the 1830 Census records, but Martha Smith is. And of course, even if Joseph were born as late as 1810, he is 'of age' by 1830 and living on his own.
Similarly, it appears that 2-3 other Smith males in Montgomery Co, NC are likely to have been his brothers or very close kin. But, I have been unable to find any evidence as of yet. These families were all poor farmers and left no estates or wills behind.
I have drawn all manner of conclusions from this and other info, but none of them have born any further information.
