John Henry Smith Family

First Generation

John Henry Smith was born in 1793 in what was then Rowan Co. NC, Married Rachel Sapp in 1812, and died in 1870. Rachel (1792-1865) was the daughter of Newell Sapp and Sarah Brummel Covey. John and Rachel are buried at Abbott's Creek Primitive Baptist, Davidson Co. NC.

Was he the brother of Thompson Smith who married Elizabeth White?
