Found copy of will and sent to you regular email
I believe you will find information on the family in conjunction with Pendleton, W VA.  Perhaps Monangalia county heads of households - 1782 lds ref. Also, if this family is of German origin, do not forget that many attached themselves temporarily to the German Battalion/regiments of Frederick county, Maryland


There are quite a few listed in upstate NY as well as a rev commanding officer named moroni I believe

Based on the dates on the tombstone for Joseph Hiram Smith, I found the census for 1790-1810 for Pendleton, SC. While they don't list names they do list how many were in the household. Below I've attached the URL for Family Search.

Just an FYI, one of my ancestors, Billington Taylor, had 2 wives. The first one had 15 children and the second one had 1. So it's very possible that they did have 12 children.

Let me know if I can help further
