Looking for information on the descendants of John Hartley Smith. He was born in 1835 in Jackson Co., (now West) Virginia, spent 1853-1855 gold digging in Mariposa Co., California, returned east to Syracuse, Ohio, then moved to San Bernardino County in 1880. He and his wife Adelaide Virginia Roberts had three sons, Harry W., Paul Verner, and Hudson. They were still living in San Bernardino County in the 1900 Census. But they then disappear, except for Pearl Verner Smith being listed in the California State Death Records, born 01 Jun 1870 and dying 28 Oct 1944 in San Bernardino County.
John Hartley Smith is a brother of Owen Brown Smith (1832-1891), my great-grandfather.
