John Smith was a part of New Jersey.

John Jewell Smith was apprenticed to the tinner's trade under Gould Phinney, at Elizabethtown, N.J.

He removed to Goshen, Orange County, N.Y. in 1824 and established a thriving tinning business in partnership with Henry Merriam. Their business developed with the growing village and they extended their trade through all the adjacent country.

In 1859, John entered into a business partnership with William C. Baker and formed the firm Baker, Smith & Co. where they manufactured and improved a low pressure, self regulating, steam warming and ventilating apparatus (an invention originally by Stephen J. Gold). John became President of the company[1].
