Hi Robert,

I'm wondering if your James C. Smith might be related to my Abraham/Abram Smith who was born abt 1792/1795 in North Carolina. Abraham's father was possibly a James Smith b. abt 1779 d. aft 1850.

Here's what I have:
1. Abram/Abraham Smith b. abt 1792/1800 in NC and died after 1850 in Abingdon, VA. His father was possible james Smith b. 1776 d.aft 1850
Abram first married to Elizabeth Stuart b.? d. bef 1844 in WA CO, VA. They had a daughter Lydia Smith b. 1825, d. 1888 who married John Johnson b. 1829.
Abraham's second marrigae to Sarah/Sallie Lintecum b. 1809, d. aft 1865 in VA. They had 10 children:
--John b.1827,
--James b. 1833,
--Amanda b. 1835,
--Thomas L (my ggrandfather) b. 1838, d. 1900 in Russell Co, He married twice. First to Nancy Booth b. 1842, d.between 1870-1880. Their children were: William David, Virginia A. Edward M, Cora W, George M
His second marriage was to Virginia A Moore b. 1861 d. 1955. They married 17 Jul 1880 in Sullivan Co, TN. They had 10 kids, Mary, Ella, John Wesley, Whitley Fullen, Benjamin Gilder, Henrietta, Walter Chesterfield, Hattie L, and the twins Charles Lawrence & Robert Clarence (Uncle Katy)
--Abram b. 1841 d. aft 1880,m. Louisa McNew
--David L b. 1843,
--William b. 1843 d. 1923, m. Fannie
--Margaret b. 1848,
--Susan b. 1851,
--Mary b. 1856

This is a start. It might be possible that your James C. Smith might be related to my Abram Smith as they both came from NC. I do have the DNA test for my Smith line from one of my Smith uncles who's now passed on. That would be a sure way to see if our Smith's are related.
My Abram Smith is J2 #28040 at this link:

I can send you my whole Smith report, if my Smith's look like they might tie in with yours. Let me know. And anyone else reading this board.
