Biography

James was born between 1783 and 1790 in South Carolina.[1][2] He was the son of David Smith and Sarah Rebecca Lindley.[3]

He appeared in the 1840 Census for Walton County, Georgia.[4]

James Smith died in Feb 1850.[5] Because he died before his mother's estate was distributed in 1857, his share was divided among his children, who (or their husbands) are all listed in the return filed by the administrator. They were: Elizabeth Ridgeway, Edmond Smith, John Farr (husband of James' daughter, Frances), Arnold Smith, David Smith, William Thompson (husband of James' daughter, Rebecca), Starling Clack (husband of James' daughter, Charity), and James Smith.[6]

Smith, David & Rebecca file; W.6082; Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant Application Files, 1800-1900 (Washington, DC: National Archives and Records Administration), Affidavit of Catherine Clack, 1855. Catherine's affidavit states that James, Mary, Ruth, Joseph, and Job were older than she. The names are stated in that order, leading to the conclusion that Catherine named her older brothers and sisters in order of age.
