There is no stone listing for Nehemiah Smith. County death records were not started until 1867. If there is a will, the death date would be found. If she was indeed 90 when she died, it would seem that he must have died here if he was here. But, people only had wills if they owed property or other valuables. That would need to be checked. The old newspapers often did not mention deaths of women or if they did, there wasn't much information. But, that is another possible source. I did not see anything in the other books I have here at home for Nehemiah or Abigail Smith. Shirley
