The Gasper Smitley listed as being born in 1844 in Pennsylvania and buried in Allegheny Cemetery is the son of John Smitley born 1811 and Keziah Whitmore born 1814 and died 1893. Gasper was the brother to my 2x great grandfather, Joseph Whitmore Smitley. I am trying to find John Smitley 1811's parents.
