John Taylor Smith: [Frankie Ann Walker Roberts, The Descendants Of John W. Walker,(The Strode Publishers, Huntsville, Alabama 35801, copyright 1982)] p. 15: John and Sarah (UNKNOWN) Smith came to Georgia from North Carolina with their two oldest children in 1773.John Smith was a Revolutionary War Soldier (called Captain John Smith).He received bounty land in Georgia for his services. ***** [Flanders, Dr. C. "Doc", Temple, Texas, <firstname.lastname@example.org>] John Smith was called "Captain" because of his service as a Captain in the Militia of Dauphin County, Pennsyvania prior to the Revolution, during the Indian Wars.John was previously believed to have originated in the Carolinas, but recent research has revealed that he was living in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.He must have emgrated to North Carolina from Pennsylvania.John Smith is listed in the "Early Settlers of Georgia", p. 202.He is listed in this list as a private in the Wilkes Dragoons at the Battle of Kettle Creek, Wilkes County, Georgia.From McCall's "Roster of Revolutionary Soldiers" is the following:Captain John Smith, a Revolutionary Soldier from Wilkes County, Georgia was born in North Carolina [error].He married Sarah UNKNOWN born in North Carolina [error].He came to Georgia in 1773 with two children.He was with the Wilkes County, Georgia Riflemen.Captain John Smith received land for his services (see Knight's Roster).This account lists 12 children, which is incomplete. The will of Captain John T. Smith, deceased, estate James Kinman, executor was signed April 27, 1794, and probated on January 30, 1795, Wilkes County, Georgia. Returns were made against the estate in 1796, made in 1800, cattle sold and killed for the use of the family. James Kinman's account for tax on slaves Betsey, Esther and Joe, 1780. James Kinman and Thos. Grier, executors ordered to appear before Court March 5, 1800. Elizabeth Smith, Chas. Smith and John Walker, administrators September 1, 1800, warrant of apportionment. Returns for 1802 expense of dividing 408 acres of land in Greene County, between Nancy Smith, John Walker and heirs of John Taylor Smith, which land was granted John Smith, deceased. Drawing of lots of land in Greene County, between Nancy Smith and John Walker and heirs of John Taylor Smith, which land was granted John Smith, deceased, by heirs and legatees April 6, 1801, signed by Harris Coleman, John Pope, John Walker, James Wootten [sic] and Chas., Benj., Wm., Milly and Nancy Smith, and the heirs of John Taylor Smith. Receipts of Benj. and Wm. Smith for their pay as overseers of the estate 1799. Receipts of Betty Smith December 4, 1800 and February 19, 1801 for her dower and one third of the crop (Betty must have been the widow of one of the sons, probably John T. Smith, as Captain John Smith's wife was Sarah, (see will, Vol. 1, page 65).Receipts of Thomas Wootten [sic], Jr. 1806 for $95.00, being money allowed for horse, saddle, bed, etc.Receipt of Benjamin Smith 1801-1802 for legacy from father's estate.Receipts of Chas.

Division of personal estate of John Smith, deceased, March 4, 1813, no administrator mentioned, Robert Mathews gets Easter, David and Matilda; Jas. Smith gets Lewis and Jordan; Bethiah C. Smith gets Joe and Stephen Smith gets Betty, Burwell, Phereby and Rachel (see Vol. 1, p. 183).Receipts of Thomas Wootten [sic], Jr. to Chas. Smith, guardian, for $501.00 part of his legacy in right of his wife Mildred from her father's estate.The confusion in this listing results from two deceased John Smith's. Evidently, John Smith mentioned here is Captain John Smith, the elder, and John T. Smith, or John Taylor Smith, as he is sometimes referred to, is the son of John Smith the elder, but both having deceased at approximately the same time. From the list of children mentioned in the "Early Settlers of Georgia", p. 202, a fair representation of his children can be made: Alexander; Mary, who married James Wooten, the son of Thomas Wooten, Sr.; Martha, who married John Walker; Elizabeth; John Taylor, who married Peggy UNKNOWN; Nancy; Frances, who married Harris Coleman; William; Benjamin; Charles, who married Nancy UNKNOWN; Milly, who married Thomas Wooten, Jr.; David, who married Elizabeth Pugh; Margaret who married John Pope. Captain John Smith is mentioned in the records of the Battle of Kettle Creek, Wilkes County, Georgia as being "called Captain".Whether or not he was an actual officer is speculative, there being no records to affirm or deny it.Interestingly enough, there was a John Smith that was brought to Court for fighting on the side of the Tories.From the records of the Battle of Kettle Creek, there can be no doubt that that was not this John Smith. The Smith's were alleged to have been Quakers, from their association and marriage into Quaker families.I have found no records in the recordings of the Monthly Meetings of the Society of Friends to affirm or deny this claim.Anyone who has researched genealogy will attest to the problem of identifying one John Smith over another without more information on them.The date that John Smith emigrated from North Carolina to Georgia is not known, but he probably didn't arrive there until about 1785 or later, because the birthplaces of many of his children are listed as North Carolina. He was known to have been in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania as early as 1744 (p. 439, "History of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania"). He married, second, Sarah Baskin (sometimes spelled Baskins), who had been captured as a child, in the spring of 1756, by the Susquehanna tribe of Indians known as Shawanese. John Smith had a son from his first marriage named James, who was killed in 1744 by Indians on the Susquehanna [River] above Peter's Mountain. [It] seems that young James was serving as a servant for a trader named John Armstrong. John Armstrong, James Smith and Woodworth Arnold were murdered by Indians of the Delaware tribe, one named John Musemeelin, on the Juniata River. Seven white men and five Indians went in search of the bodies of those murdered; after some search, found and buried them. The murderer was afterward apprehended, and delivered up to his own nation, and imprisoned at Lancaster, whence he was removed to Philadelphia, lest he should escape, or his trial and execution produce an unfavorable impression on his countrymen about to assemble for a conference with the whites at Lancaster.The atrocity of this murder was so aggravating that a Provincial Council was held, and it was resolved that Conrad Weiser, the Provincial Interpreter and Indian Agent, should be sent to Shamokin to make demands in the name of the Governor for some others concerned in the murder.This occured on May 2, 1744.Since James was murdered in 1744, and John's wife Sarah Baskin was abducted in 1756 when she was seven, this proves she had to be his second wife, and not the mother of James.James' mother is believed to have perished in childbirth. In the Book "Quaker Grants in Georgia" a list is given of all [Georgia land] grants issued to Quakers from 1770 to 1774.The surveying of and settlement on the various farms and town lots began as early as 1768.In some instances this time lag between settlement and surveying, and granting was as much as two years due very probably to the hardships and difficulties of the journey between Wrightsboro and Savannah, the seat of government. Except as specifically noted in the list, none but Quakers received grants in town and township prior to the Revolution. Individual Quakers received grants totalling 30,650 acres in the township which, added to the 672 acres in the town, made a total of 31,322 acres settled upon. During 1774 and 1775 the Governor granted to himself and to certain favorites and members of his Council another 11,967 acres, but in all probability that remained uncultivated, vacant land. John Smith received 100 acres on March 7, 1775, Book M, p. 1091 and Richard Smith, received on lot No. 33 in the township, 250 acres on July 3, 1770, Book I, p. 159. On page 306 and 307, "Early Records of Georgia", are listed some familiar names: Jacob Thrash, Sr.; David Kinman; James Kinman; Jehu Pugh and Robert Pugh, who were all given two draws in the land lottery of Wilkes County, Georgia. Martin Thrash received one draw. In the list that was compiled by Robert Willingham, Jr., in the Library of Congress, as he searched the records for Representative Robert G. Stephens, listed under the Wilkes Dragoons, there is a list of the men who fought at the Battle of Kettle Creek, found there at p. 47 are Captain John Smith and Nathan Smith.The Pope, Wooten, and Stewart family members are listed as well.James Kinman, executor of John's will is believed to be a relative of Alcie Kinman, possibly her father.Alcie Kinman married Robert Pugh, father of Elizabeth Pugh, who married David Smith, son of John Smith. ***** [Flanders, Dr. C.
