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.

Welcome Edmund, hope you have as much success as I have had on Wikitree, after 69 years of wondering, dna and the Wikitree family got me to my mother, younger maternal brother and to my 8th great grandparents.

Never give up
