Earl on your Atlantic Co. Ancestors of Robert M. Smith (1808-1861): father: Thomas Smith 1785-1816, father: Elias Smith ca. 1738-1806, mother: Sarah Ireland. Elias's father: Elisha Smith ca 1705-1775, mother:Zeruiah Billings. Zeruiah's father: Simon Billings. Elisha's father: Simon Smith. Simon Smith's father: Joseph Smith. I do not have the documentation for this, it came from a 5th cousin who is very active in the Atlantic County Historical Society and has writen a book on his family.

This website ruled him out for me as father candidate.

http:/freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wcarr1simon_smith.htm 1

but maybe this is not the same Simon Smith; I do remember an Elisha Smith in a Simon Smith estate so look again: This website confirms Simon and there is DNA also but it is from England and KY.

However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Elisha:
