U.S. States: New York: Jefferson County
Ranslow SMITH was born in 1805 in Jefferson County NY, according to a family Bible. He first appears in the census records in 1830 in Henderson NY, but moves on to Dodge County Wisconsin by 1850. He married Mary _____ about 1837 and had children Mary (b 1838)and Devier James Smith (1839).
Based on the census data, I think he is probably a son of either Asa Smith or Sylvester Smith, both of whom were in Henderson between 1800 and 1830. Sylvester Smith left a pension file which does not mention a son Ranslow. Does anyone know the names of the children of Asa Smith and/or Sylvester Smith?
Is anyone else researching this SMITH family of the Henderson area? Other SMITH names in later census records are Beebe, Ansel, Lyman, Eldredge, etc.
