I believe our Margaret Jane SMITH MARTIN is the daughter of Catharine Smith. I created this database to assist you since I've solved the mystery of Catharine SMITH of Adair Co. but I can't find her marriage record to Thomas GROVES.

  • ID: I148
  • Name: Rebecca SMITH
  • Surname: Smith
  • Given Name: Rebecca
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1841 in (, Adair, Kentucky)
  • _UID: C0FE1A2AEDB58C4F8CA8331DCD1708433219
  • Note:
    I have no proof of this and it should be searched out.
    !On the 1870 census, next door to Ben and Margaret SMITH MARTIN is Sterling PITTMAN with wife, Rebecca, and a few doors away is Patience SMITH and Ab DUDLEY. Next door to the Sterling PITTMAN family is more RODGERS families and a James DUDLEY who is married to Therrisa SMITH, daughter of Jacob SMITH.
    !The Sterling PITTMAN family is still in Green Co. on the 1880 census and their first born daughter is named Catharine and their last born son, age 3, is named "Pearn" Pittman. They are within doors of Margaret and Ben MARTIN.
    !When Ben MARTIN applied for CW benefits in 1879 they were in Menard Co., Illinois. A witness on that affadavit was Sterling PITTMAN, although I can't find the Pittman's in Menard Co. at any time, however, according to Ben's affadavit he and his family lived in Menard Co. several times since the CW but they are always on Green Co. censuses, not Menard Co.

    !Rebecca SMITH is not found on an 1850 census but she wouldn't be because the household of Catharine SMITH avoided censuses like the plague.
    !On the estate settlement by the court on William Perrin Grove, decd, of Adair Co. Patience SMITH and Rebecca PITTMAN is listed a creditors to the estate, dated 1867. There are others listed as creditors but from the censuses they are merchants that were apparently owed by the estate.
