Faye Jarvis Moran and Elizabeth H. Harris,



Jack Flower is researching the Meredith Smith line in Stokes Co., NC. and would like to correspond with other Smith researchers. His e-mail address is:

Many of the names on this page came from a gedcom (Bennett.ged) whose author is unknown, posted on the now-defunct Sharing database in 1995. If anyone can identify this file, please let us know! Update - thanks to Jack Fowler we now know who the gedcom belonged to. The site and material belonged to James Waco Knott who passed away in 1999. He decended from Rome O. Bennet who was related to this Smith family.

The names and dates in this gedcom are largely consistent with Forsyth County cemetery, census and estate records, and with notes in the Records of the Moravians in North Carolina, which were used as supplementary sources.

This page was created on May 13, 2001 and revised on June 14, 2005.
