My Nesmith line is via Maryland and Pennsylvania, with a John Nesmith who is reported to have been deported to this country via the ship Johnson sometime prior to 1688.
His grandson, Isaac Nesmith was born January 30, 1750 in Mt. Pleasant Twp, York Co. PA. He married Nancy Ann Johnson of Bush Creek Forge, Frederick Co, Maryland on December 29, 1791. I am looking for Revolutionary War information, either civilian or military on Isaac (for DAR purposes)
Isaac's son, Thomas Johnson Nesmith was born in Washington, DC on November 6, 1795 and is reported to be a veteran of the War of 1812, serving with Captain M. Murray during the Battle of Baltimore...and am also looking for information on this as well...(for daughters of the War of 1812 purposes!)
Have extremely enjoyed searching various sites for information and history! Thanks for your attention!
