I don't suppose you have any info on the parents of Hiram Wesley Smith? My Elizabeth Smith born 1823 in Gallia Co. Ohio was the daughter of Solomon & Catherina Hartsook Smith. According to census records Solomon & Catherine had at least 3 sons, only 1 of whom a name is known. It looks like Hiram is a good guess for their eldest son. My Elizabeth & her brother George both went from Gallia Co. to Knox Co. Illinois, but at a later date than Hiram. Just after 1900 my Elizabeth's daughter Martha Hale moved to Oregon where she married. I feel she must have had some relatives there. Hiram would have died by this time, but she likely had cousins in the area.
As for the James Watts, son of John, whom you mentioned I have little info. I list him born about 1830 in Cass Co. Indiana, died 1873. I have no info on his wife. I show John Watts Sr. born Virginia Feb. 18, 1775, died Oct. 4, 1844 in Cass Co. Indiana. He married his 2nd wife Martha Woodkirk in 1824. I show them with 2 children, John & Eli. I have complete info on Eli. Anything you can add on your ancestor would be appreciated.
