This was taken from from Victoria Smith Wolfe obituary.
If anyone knows William Smith wife name please e-mail me at

William SMITH, who about the year 1830, with his wife and three sons, Joab, George and Robert, came from Botetourt County, Virginia, to West Virginia, and were taken by cold weather near Sissonville, where they went into winter quarters on what is now known as the Greenbury FISHER farm at the mouth of Allen's Fork of Poca, at which place both the parents died and are buried on a point overlooking Poca, near their winter's abode. After which George and Robert found permanent homes on Poca and Eighteen Mile Creek, and Joab SMITH, the father of Mrs. WOLFE, came to Ripley and later went to Ohio, having taught school in West Virginia and Ohio until the Civil War broke out when he left Ohio and came back to West Virginia, where he taught several private schools, one for the Honorable George CROW.
