Mary Agnesa (Klappert) Smith, Knee was born in 1752. She passed away in 1833.
She first married and raised a family with Jacob Smith until he died in 1794.  She remarried, sometime after Jacob's death when she was in her fifties. She became the second wife of Philip Herman Knie/Knee/Kny who was her son-in-law Jacob Rhodes’s uncle. Jacob Rhodes married Catherine Smith. Phillip, born 6 March 1745, was the brother of Jacob Rhodes’s mother.
Philip and Mary Agnes Knee had no children together. Each of them had many children from their first marriages. Philip died in Montgomery County, Ohio 15 Dec 1824. Mary Agnes passed away in 1833. She is buried beside Philip Knee in Ehrstine Cemetery, Trotwood, Randolph Twp., Montgomery Co., OH.

David S. Smith 1794-1837 m Elizabeth Whitehead 26 May 1822 Montgomery, Ohio.
Susannah Smith (a minor child listed last on the Orphans’ Court plea) the only mention I have seen outside of that source is a tree that says her birth was in Nov, seven months after her father died, and in the same year her brother David was born. It amounts to nonsense. Deceased was given as date of death. No source.
Agnes was the daughter of Johann Henrich Klappert and Anna Elisabeth Behr.
