Re: Smail family of Pa / Bavia (sp?)
According to the 1888 History of Mercer County, "John and Mary Smail, natives of Germany, came from Westmoreland County to West Salem Township in 1812 or '13.They reared eleven children, viz.:Jacob, John, Samuel, George, Susan, Elizabeth, Polly, Sarah, Katie, Christina and Rachel. The parents died in West Salem, where their descendants are quite numerous."I have Jacob marrying a Magdelena Klingensmith and George marrying a Priscilla Baker.John Smail, aged 27 years, born in 1794 is buried in the Baptist Cemetery located in West Salem Township, Mercer Co, PA.Contact me if interested.
