I have recently mentioned Adam Smith whose daughter Susanna married Abraham Thomas. Adam had two brothers, Zacharias and John, and the three of them moved to Kentucky about 1777 (at least that the last year of any records in Culpeper County for them). Zacharias married, about 1760, Ann Elizabeth Fishback, who was the daughter of John Frederick Fishback and Ann Elizabeth Holtzclaw. Remembering that these Smiths had a mother, Ann Magdalena Thomas, the sister of John Thomas and of Michael Thomas, we see another Thomas and Holtzclaw connection.

About the same time that Jacob Holtzclaw was raising corn in Kentucky, Zacharias Smith was doing the same. Very likely, they had engaged in this activity together.

Adam Smith, was married twice and we can say very little about his wives names except the second wife seems to be an Elizabeth.
