Sorting out the Smith / Schmidt clan:
We have a number of Smith's/Schmidt's in this group, so I thought I might start a thread to sort out the connections and allow us to flush out history of others tied into this community. I know Brian Hamman's family were part of the community which included the Smiths back in New Jersey.
Here is what we know. In this group we have a number of Smith cousins. They all trace back to one of two early immigrants: Mathias Schmidt and Johannes (John) Schmidt (Smith). The connection of Tunis Smith Sheats is also part of the Johannes clan.
