David Smith was one of four (along with M. Lowry, William Ross, and Garland Maxey) who certified the inventory appraisal of the estate of Alexander Smith in January 1832, Jasper County, Georgia. Alexander Smith died 4 April 1831 and was between 50 and 60 when he died (born, thus, about 1771/1781). D. Smith and Abr. Smith, among others, were also buyers of Alexander Smith's "perishable property" as recorded 27 Feb 1832, in Jasper Co. probate records. Any possibility that "your" David Smith and the David Smith mentioned in these records are the same? I've been trying to get a lead on Alexander Smith's birthplace and parents, without success.

Do you have the name Lucy in your Smith files. I have a David Smith Taylor that is her son. Maybe named after her father? She married Aquilla Taylor in Jasper Co. in 1821

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Lucy SMITH was related to Alexander SMITH in Jasper County, but she isn't one of his offspring, according to those listed in the probate records for him. She must be about the same age, given the 1821 marriage, as Alexander's daughter, Sarah C. SMITH, who married James L. MARTIN (my ggg grandparents) also in 1821.

One of the purchasers of items at the estate sale of Alexander SMITH was David SMITH. They were obviously neighbors (since most who bought at sales lived close by), but they could have also been brothers or cousins. I still haven't found out who Alexander SMITH's parents and siblings were.

Hope we can figure out who all the Jasper County SMITHS were and how they were related. I'll keep searching. Good luck in your research.

Basil Smith is listed in the 1830 Jasper Co. census. He married Malinda Simmons in 1814 in Putnam Co. I have extensive info on their decendents but nothing on their parents or siblings. If these names appear in your data, please let me know.

1816 Estate sale of Richard Sansom (16 Nov. 1816) Jasper Co., Georgia included Smith buyers: Tom Smith; Jane Smith; Jerry Smith. Daughters of Richard Sansom included a daughter, FANNY SMITH. She apparently resided in Jasper Co., Ga. until 1859 when a Mitchel AARON and a Charles OSBORN as an "interested party" applied to the court for letters of Administration de bonis non cum testamento annexo on the estate of Richard Sansom (administration of the estate not yet adminstered, with the last testament annexed or shown to the court). It says "it appearing to the court that under the last will and Testament of Richard Sansom late of Jasper county deceased, certain negro property was willed to the children of FANNY SMITH, and the said FANNY SMITH was to hold the possession on said negro property during her life, and it further appearing to the court that the said FANNY SMITH has departed this life.. A C. E. F. W. CAMPBELL and James C. AARON were appointed securities.

The copies of the originals from the Ga. Archives are in my possession.

Surnames: Wilkerson, Wilkinson
Hammon Wilkerson was related to John Wilkerson who died in Wilkes Co., Georgia. His (John Wilkerson's) legatees, in about 1812 or so, were George Malone (the Jasper Co., Malones wife, Martha Wilkerson), Samuel, Pleasant, Nathanial Wilkinson (interchanges with Wilkerson from one record to another) and Vincent Harrison and Joseph Johnson. There are many references to the estate of Hammon Wilkerson of Jasper Co., Ga. in the Georgia Journal Abstracts (Genealogical Abstracts of the Georgia Journal (Milledgeville) Newspapers) by Fred and Emilie K. Hartz, covering the year Hammon died and his estate administrated. I have in my own notes (doing Malone research) that Hammon's executors were Jeptha and Simeon Wilkinson, Administrators.His land is listed in an 1826 entry as being by estimate 227 acres of land lying 8 miles from Monticello near the road leading from thence to the Factory. Also one negro woman being the residue of the personal property belonging to said estate, administartors still as above. Somehow, I have that Hammon was of John Wilkinson's line, but I can't find in my notes how I surmised that. I have that Simeon Wilkerson lived in 15th district of Jasper Co. adj. Felix Standley, l01 1/4 acres. This in 1827. The land was levied on as property of a William Holloway, dec'd. and levied to satisfy fi fas in favor of Felix Standley vs. Stephen P. Bailey, administrator of William Holloway, dec'd.
