The "Smith Family" of Houston County,Ga.

Updated September 30, 2005

Nine generations of "Smith" family decendents have lived in Georgia since the late 1790's or early 1800's. Prior to that they lived in North or South Carolina till the migration patterns of the times brought them to Georgia. The forced relocation of Creek Indian tribes in the early 1800's offered the opportunity to claim former Indian tribal lands in the land lot lottery of Georgia in 1820-1821. They were lucky winners and soon added to their holdings, purchasing adjoining lots and growing their families. The land holdings remained in the Smith family till the early 1960's. Their decendents still live in Georgia and are also spread from coast to coast.
