It is believed that three of the Smith sons fought in the Revolutionary War - against the beliefs of the Quaker Church. DAR records show that Anthony, Jr. (13-201); James (20-129) and Noah Smith (40-244) were listed as veterans of that war. Anthony and Lydia Smith lived on Smiths Fork of Ten Mile Creek in Morgan Township and paid 1800 taxes to Greene County. The Smith's Quaker Cemetery in Morgan Township is near their farm. Anthony Smith's will (137 in Book 1, page 83) is on file in Greene County, Pa. Buried according to Quaker tradition, their graves are not marked with headstones.
SMITH, ANTHONY - Died sometime before 9 January 1810 when his 1798 will was filed in Prothnatory Court, Greene County, Pa. Letters of Administration were dated 2 February 1810 granted to Thomas Smith, Executor. (The other executor Timothy Smith being out of state.)
