Family Group Sheet

Colby Smith And Rebecca Henry

1. COLBY2 SMITH (THOMAS1) was born Abt. 1751 in VA, and died 1835 in Washington Co., GA. He married REBECCA ANNA HENRY 1775 in Chatham Co., NC. She was born Abt. 1753, and died Aft. 1820 in Washington Co, GA.

Notes for COLBY SMITH:

Most of the information we have for Colby Smith is tradition. Tradition says his parents were Thomas Smith from VA and Sarah Anita Colby of MA. There are several DAR members who trace their lineage to Colby Smith of the Virginia Militia. No record has been found of Revolution War service but he did draw land for his service in NC and in the 1832 land lottery in GA.

We first find Colby Smith in Chatham Co, NC where he was granted 200 acres on the great branch of Bear Creek.

CHATHAM CO, NC LAND ENTRIES 1778-1790

Feb. 25, 1779 --COLBY SMITH enters 200 ac on the great branch of Bear Cr; border: a pine near the branch, runs up said branch, & "round"; includes the "plantation" he lives on; warrant issued Oct. 26.

1832 Land Lottery
25 2 199 Smith Colsbey r.s. Peacock's Washington

We find him next listed on the 1790 census in Chatham Co, NC having 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16, and 5 females.

Tradition says Colby Smith left Chatham Co, NC about 1798 and moved to Burke Co, GA. He soon moved to Washington Co, GA where he lived out his life.

The 1790, 1800, and 1810 census records for Georgia are missing - destroyed in a fire in Washington, D.C. during the War of 1812. Colby is listed on the 1820 census for Washington Co, GA. He is listed as Colesby Smith and has (2) males 10/16, and (1) over 45. Females 16/26 and over 45.

Colby is listed on the 1825 Tax list for Washington Co, GA. He is buried in Young Family Cemetery with no dates. His death is estimated at about 1835. During the late 1920s or early 1930s a DAR marker was place on his tombstone.

No record has been found for his parents and some of the children listed for him are based on speculation.

Notes for REBECCA ANNA HENRY:

Rebecca Anna Henry's father may be Micajah Henry of Chatham Co, NC. This is speculation and has not been proven.

Children of COLBY SMITH and REBECCA HENRY are:

i. LUCY3 SMITH, b. Abt. 1775; m. GEORGE WEATHERS.

Notes for LUCY SMITH:

That Lucy is the daughter of Colby Smith is tradition and word of mouth. That she married George Weathers is family tradition. No real information has been found for her. The following are research notes with no real connection yet.

ii. THOMAS B. SMITH, b. Abt. 1776; m. LETTIE SMITH; b. Abt. 1780.

Notes for THOMAS B. SMITH:

The only records for Thomas that has been found Is the 1825 Tax list for Washington Co, GA which shows him owning 400 acres of pine land. Also, the 1820 census record for Washington Co, GA which lists: Males: (1) 26/45, (3) under 10, and (3) 10/16. Females: (1) 26/45, (1) 10/16, (1) 16/26.

The Bethany Baptist Church minutes for 1820-1830 mentions Thomas Smith and Lucretia Smith. The authors of "Colby Smith and His Descendants" speculate that Lettie may be short for Lucretia. They also speculate that John Smith, Jr. may be the son of Thomas because of the similarity of names. John Smith, Jr. was born abt. 1810 and married Clarky b. abt 1811. Who is John Smith, Jr.?

Notes for JOHN SMITH:

John was a farmer. He may have had another wife before he married Catherine but no records or legends survive. The speculation that he had another wife is because he was over 40 years old when his first child was born and he was much older than Catherine.

4. MICAJAH3 SMITH (COLBY2, THOMAS1) was born Jul 18, 1790 in Chatham Co., NC, and died Sep 24, 1878 in Washington Co., GA. He married ELIZABETH DUTY Abt. 1812 in Washington Co, GA, daughter of RICHARD DUTY and ELIZABETH THOMAS. She was born 1795 in NC, and died Aft. 1870 in Washington Co, GA.

Notes for MICAJAH SMITH:

Micajah Smith was born in 1790 in Chatham Co, NC (1860 Census) to Colesby and Anna Smith. He was a twin to Rebecca who married William Young. Tradition says that the Smith family moved from NC about 1800 to Burke Co, Ga and then on the Washington Co, GA. The 1790, 1800, and 1810 Census records for Georgia were lost during an attack on Washington D. C. in the war of 1812. The first census record for Micajah is 1820 in Washington Co, GA. He is listed there through 1870 except for 1850.

Name: Micajah Smith
Death Date: 24 September 1878
County: Washington
State: GA
Country: USA

Notes for ELIZABETH DUTY:

Elizabeth Duty was born in 1795 in NC (1860 Census record). She was the daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Duty of Granville Co, NC. She married Micajah Smith about 1812. Elizabeth died after the census was taken in 1870 as she is listed with Mycager Smith in Washington Co, Ga.

It is uncertain who Elizabeth's parents were. Much more research needs to be done.

Children of MICAJAH SMITH and ELIZABETH DUTY are:

i. JOSEPH DUTY4 SMITH, b. Dec 6, 1813, Washington Co., GA; d. Jul 17, 1887, Washington Co., GA; m. (1) REBECCA ELMIRA JOINER, Abt. 1835, Washington Co, GA; b. Mar 25, 1815, Washington Co., GA; d. Mar 5, 1864, Washington Co., GA; m. (2) SOPHIE WHIDDEN, Dec 30, 1864, Washington Co, GA; b. Feb 23, 1830, Appling Co, GA; d. Jun 24, 1880, Washington Co, GA; m. (3) MARY PEACOCK, May 10, 1881, Washington Co, GA.

Notes for JOSEPH DUTY SMITH:

Census records show that Joseph was born and lived all his life in Washington County, GA.

Joseph D. Smith was born in 1813 in Washington Co, Ga. He married Rebecca Elmira Joiner in 1835. Elmira died in 1864 and he married Sophie (Whidden) Smith, widow of Daniel C. Smith. To the marriage she brought her two daughters, Mary E. and Emma T. Sophie and Joseph had one son, Ednar Columbus born in 1866.

Some believe that Joseph married a third time to "Mary". In 1880 he was still living with Sohpie and since he is 67 yrs. old in 1880 and he died in 1887 I think it is unlikely that he married again.

Notes for REBECCA ELMIRA JOINER:

All census records show Elmira Joiner Smith living in Washington Co, GA.

Rebecca Elmira Joiner was born in Washington county, GA in 1815. She married in 1835 at the age of 20 yrs old. She died in 1864 after living her entire life in Washington Co, Ga.

Notes for SOPHIE WHIDDEN:
Died of Typhoid Fever.

Notes for MARY PEACOCK:

Mary Peacock Pierce Vann was the daughter of Uriah Peacock and sister-in-law to Nancy Ann Smith Peacock, Joseph Duty's sister. Mary's first husband was Phillip B. Pierce. She was the second wife of William Wesley Vann, who was killed in a runaway horse accident, whose first wife was Ruth Armour Kennedy.

Notes for GEORGE SMITH:

George Smith was born in Georgia - probably Burke County. Although the rest of Colby's children were born in North Carolina, all the census records for George's children say their father was born in Georgia. The 1850 census record for Washington County, Georgia lists him as being born in Georgia and he is 54 years old. That would mean he was born in 1796. Colby moved his family to Burke County about 1798 which means that George may have been born in North Carolina. But ages were often wrong on census records and George may have been younger.

1850 Washington Co, GA. George 54, Viny 43, Elijah 41, Sarah Ann J. 16, Colby 18, George F. 14, Elizabeth 12, Martha A. P. 10, Daniel J. 7, Nancy M. 5, Vina 3, Eli 29. All were born in Georgia. George, Elijah, Colby, and Eli were listed as planters. If this Elijah is the son of George and Viny his age is mis-stated. He should be age 21.

George was listed on the 1825 tax list for Washington County, GA. He paid a poll tax but did not have property. On the 1828 tax list he paid tax on 400 acres of pine land. In 1851 he received a Headright and Bounty land grant of 600 acres in Washington County.

George was a member of Liberty Grove Baptist Church but moved to New Bethel Church in 1848.

George died about 1854 but no record or burial site have been located.

Notes for LAVINA PHILLIPS:

According to family legends Lavinia was a Philips but some believe she was a Kinman. Her mother first married John Philips and later married Kendrick Kinman.
