Frank Smith (shoemaker, postmaster) died 1904

I am trying to find more information on Frank Smith. Family information is that Frank was born in 1832 and had died in 1904. He was supposed to have lived in Cumberland County but he was supposed to have been buried in Lewisberry, which I believe is in York County - unknown which cemetery. Frank worked as a shoemaker, storekeeper, and a postmaster and his second wife was supposed to be a Leah Updegraph. Frank was actually supposed to have been born to an Elizabeth Bond of Maryland Line, Maryland (& later of York, PA) but for some reason Frank was raised and adopted by a Mrs. Smith, who later married a Mr. Low. Frank also had a son named Charles H. Smith who was a principal of New Cumberland High School in the early 1900s. Frank's brothers were William Henry Bond, Alfred Bond, and Edwin Bond. This information about Frank was relayed to some Bond relatives of mine who had gotten it from a Sarah Jane Smith Young back in the 1970s who stated this was mentioned in the Smith Family Bible. I am very interested in trying to learn more about Frank's background (where he's buried, exact death date, did he leave a will, etc) and if anyone is familiar with this family. I and several cousins have been trying to find out who the biological father was to Frank and his brothers and what the reason was that Frank was adopted by another family. If anyone can shed any light on Frank, I'd be very happy to hear further. Thanks in advance!
