I am very lucky to have most of my genealogical research done by my relatives. I find the information fascinating, old stories, who is related to whom and all of that jazz. For most of my life though the Smith family origins and family tree were cloudy. So one day I asked my Aunt Norma, and she confirmed that my Great-Great – Grandfather Joseph Smith was a German Immigrant. The next time we met she gave me this nifty document (Smith Family History) about Joseph Smith, a C&O canal boat builder and an avid hunter, even into his spry golden years. She made a nice outline of the family tree, but I had some trouble figuring out the generations and such. So I made this image of the Smith Family Tree. (Family Members, please contact me: Siera104@gmail. com and please help me complete and/or correct this tree. I would be more than happy to ad photos and more information!) Thanks, and enjoy.
Update, since I originally posted this information to the web a cousin, Pamela Rhodes Smith contacted me. She was kind enough to send me some photos of the family to post. Check them out, here.
