Clarke Smith was born August 7, 1760, in Scituate Township, Providence, Rhode Island to parents Richard and Lydia Smith.
The 1820 US Census has a Clarke Smith in the Scituate Township, Providence, Rhode Island, but this Clark Smith is marked in the 20-30 year old range, so it is not the same Clarke Smith. The younger is probably a son, nephew or cousin.
