Hello. My name is Edmund Johnson Smith and I found this site by googling my paternal grandfather's name, Willis Bion Smith.  He was born in 1857 in Syracuse, NY and it was told in our family that as a boy he had heard Lincoln speak.  Cool beans I thought.  I am a teacher in East Hartford CT, single, and interested in geneology.

Edmund,

Welcome to WikiTree! Looked at your grandfather's profile. It's great that someone has added so many sources and started a biography.

Did you know his profile has been orphaned. Any Wiki Genealogist can adopt him and be his profile manager. If this is something you would consider then take a look at the link below explaining membership to decide if you want to upgrade your account.
