According to the ROWN COUNTY REGISTER article on the PITT/SMITH BIBLE by Gloria Smith Padach in 1994 (pp 2049-2056), Rebecca (Anderson) Smith was buried in the Cedar Creek area of Rowan County, where she lived wi th her daughter and son-in-law, Fancian and Charles Hunt. She is buried in Eaton's Baptist Cemetary in present day Davie County, NC, where her headstone states she died August 12, 1785, age 86 years. From [Rev. Morgan Edwards, Materials Towards a History of the Baptists, II:106]. Thomas Smith who rebelled so strongly in Hopewell that he became fugitive, died at his home on Swearing Creek. His widow, Rebecca, many years his junior, lived to see more wagon trains arrive, some with neighbors and kin from Hopewell, including the Baptist Stouts, Eatons and Merrells. She was there c1752 when a huge wagon train brought several hundred people, including most of the congregation of Scotch Plains Baptist Church from Essex County, New Jersey, and undoubtedly heard sermons in 1755 by that church's visiting minister, "Rev. (Benjamin) Miller-(who) spent several weeks at the Jersey Church for the colony was made up of many persons from his neighborhood.-"'
