Information on Henry Smith

Some records have his name as Henery Smith, but the Revolutionary War documents where he was paid for his services in helping General Thomas Sumter and his army when Sumter was wounded and stayed at the Smith home for three days have his name as Henry Smith.

His wife Amy's name is variously spelled Amy, Amelia, Emi, Amey and probably other spellings. Her maiden name is not proven.

Henry Smith:

a. Henry Smith is listed in 1740 Importation of Henry Smith, son of John Smith as one of "his own Charges from Ireland to Philadelphia & from thence into this Colony" [Orange County, Virginia Order Book II, Circuit Court of Orange County, Orange, Virginia, 1740 p. 205]

Tinkling Springs Church, Augusta County, Virginia: Baptisms of children of Henery Smith

Abraham Smith 2 October 1748
John Smith 27 April 1749


Henry and Amy Smith's family Group record notes by Sandra Smith Gwilliam: Most of the birth dates are assumptions.

Sources for the children of Henry and Amy Smith:

1. Abraham Smith:

List of Baptisms 1740 - 1749 Tinkling Springs Church by Rev. John Craig, First Pastor of Old Stone Church in Augusta County, Virginia". [Note from Wallace Smith-"I believe he was also the first pastor of the Tinkling Springs Church"]:

2 October 1748: Henery Smith, a child baptized named Abraham
Abraham is listed in his father’s will: And first to my eldest son Abraham I will & Bequeath my second volum [sic] of Pools Anotations [sic] York County, South Carolina Wills Vol. A-12 Page 65 Will No. 37. (FHL film: 229694)
Abraham’s will was proven 14 Jun 1806, Union County, SC, Will Book A pp 97-101
2. John Smith: Baptisms 1740 - 1749 Tinkling Springs Church by Rev. John Craig, 27 April 1749: Henery Smith, a child baptized named John
John is listed in his father, Henry Smith’s will: “To my son John I Bequeath fifty Acres of Land... to my son Henry...together with one half of the fishery in his Brother John's division” York County, South Carolina Wills Vol. A-12 Page 65 Will No. 37. (FHL film: 229694)
Guy Smith (President and Historian of the Col. John Smith Society) sent a photocopy of John Smith's headstone. The birth date on it doesn't match the christening (baptism) record of John, son of Henry Smith in the Tinkling Springs Church records, but sometimes children weren't christened right away.
The discrepancy in the dates in the records makes it seem that John is older than Abraham Smith, but in his father's will, (Henry Smith), Abraham was named as the eldest son.


3. Gideon Smith:
Gideon Smith’s will is found in: Probate records of District 96 South Carolina will proved Aug 23, 1783 which names his wife, his son and some of his brothers.
Gideon Smith's Will, No. 18 - Box 87 - Pack 2140: Will dated August 20, 1779 in 96 District. Proven August 23, 1783.
4. Elizabeth Smith.
I have no notes for her or any sources of who gave me the information on her death date. She could possibly have been the single daughter, or she could have been the daughter who married the Jolley and had a son named Henry Jolley.
5. William Smith:
He is listed in his father’s will:
“To my son Jonathan I will my Negroe Wench named Rosse reserving at the same time forty pounds to be paid by him to his Brother William in trade”
6. Daniel Smith:
Lt. Daniel Smith died from wounds received at the Battle at Stono, fought on 20 June 1779. Daniel died August 1779 at Old Barracks Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina. In Smith Wills-Deeds & Family Histories, Vol. I,, by Linda G. Cheek, it states that Daniel had a son named John Smith.

10. Sarah Smith
Listed in her father’s will: ... to my Daughter Sarah Ramsey.


11. I have added an extra daughter who isn't listed specifically in the will by name, but there must be at least one because he specifically states that his estate is “to be divided amoungst my daughters married and single”.
