Notes for George Smith:
The Smith's are listed in 1871 British Census living on 2 Albert Street, Hetton-Le-Hole, County Durham,England.He worked as a coal miner in England and continued mining after his arrival in the United States.They immigrated to the US in 1881 or 1882.While doing research, I learned that it was less expensive to travel by ship from England to Canada.Many immigrants then crossed the Canadian border into the United States, finally settling in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan.This may have been the route of the Smith family.They first settled in Robinsville, Ohio before migrating eastward to Pennsylvania.I found them listed on the following census records:
1900 Census - Plain City, Beccaria Twp., Clearfield County, PA.
1910 Census - Dean Twp., Cambria County, PA
Buried in Protestant cemetery on Wapsononock Mt. (Wopsy) near Dysart, PA.
See list of burials in Richland-Dean Cemetery.(I included the whole list.There could be someone of interest listed.)
