I'm looking for the parentage of Jesse Smith b. abt. 1783. He married Elizabeth Willis abt. 1813 in Belmont Co., OH. Her father, Robert Willis, bought land from Mahlon Smith in 1814. I'm wondering if there is a connection between Jesse and Mahlon Smith. Jesse and Elizabeth's children were: William Harrison Smith, Jesse C. Smith, Sarah Smith, Clarinda Smith, and unknown daughter. The family moved from Belmont Co., OH to Fountain Co., IN, then finally to Coles Co., IL.
