Nr. 1381: I listed Downing Rucker Smith as the tenth child of Isaac Smith, Sr., and his wife Margaret Rucker, but I did not give any of the children for him. He married Catherine Boehme (Beam, Beemon) and they had five children including:

William Downing Smith, married Diana Yager (daughter of Blind John Yager), and they had thirteen children (one more died in infancy), of whom six were: Fielding Smith, who married Rhoda Carpenter, Nancy Smith, who married Benjamin Garr, Ellen Smith, who married Joel Smith, Mary Smith, who married Jonas Finks Blankenbaker, Barbara Jency Smith, who married John S. Yowell, and Robinson G. Smith, who married Elizabeth Shirley Clore. Benjamin Smith, married Anna Yowell. Susannah Smith, married Isaac Smith, Jr., son of Isaac Smith alias Sims. Downing William Smith, married Elizabeth Bush. Asa Smith, married Barbara Yager, and had four children, including Weeden Smith, who married Alpha Yager. Darryl Diemer, the author of the above, and I had some discussion of whether it was proven that Catherine Boehme was the wife of Downing Rucker Smith. I had another suggestion for the husband of Catherine Boehme, who happened also to be a Smith of another family. We could never conclude anything positively, but Darryl felt that he was correct. In telling this, I am not saying that Darryl was wrong. I would say that I have some doubts. (15 Mar 02)
