Wow, do we have a lot of surnames in common?I hardly know where to start.With your William Smith, do you know where he was from?
My Shaffers/Shavers, etc. came from PA originally and ended up in Illinois.That is probably my most difficult line, can't go back as far as I can for Smith, even.
The Nowlins, Waldens, etc., were originally from Virginia, went to Kentucky and Indiana.
When I get a chance, I will review some of your postings to see what you're looking for specifically.Today I have company coming and given the number of names we have in common, this will take a while.
