Notes for Elizabeth Kerr: Continued Notes from Andrew Smith's page:
17 October, 1795, William Brackin, yeoman of Orange to AndrewSmith of same, for the natural love and affection which he bearethAndrew Smith and for better maintenence and livelihood, 63 acres 3-1/2ch beginning at Jacob Gravenses Garrison's line...up StoneyCreek...signed William Brackin; witness William Brackin, Jr., WilliamKillon. Proved November Term, 1795. Bk 5, p. 312 (This suggests thatson-in-law Andrew Smith did not own property in Orange Co. before1795. Perhaps this is the reason why there were not three AndrewSmiths listed for any one year from 1785-1791.) Young Andrew and hiswife Hannah may have been living elsewhere.) 11 November, 1795, Andrew Smith of Orange to Lewis Dishing ofsame, 100 pounds, 189 acres on waters of Deep Creek adjacent JamesDuke, Armous King, Wm Robb. (Tract granted by N.C. to Andrew Smith).Signed Andrew x Smith, proved August Term 1801. Bk 9, p. 332 (Notethat Andrew's 189 acres was granted by N.C. in 1785. Is it possiblethat it was for service in the Revolution in Pennsylvania where anAndrew Smith served?) 22 December, 1795, Jess Thomas & Eleanor his wife of Orange toAndrew Smith of same, 66 1/2 acres on Stoney Creek bounded by Brackin...Proved MayTerm, 1796, Bk 5, p. 450 (Which Andrew Smith is this? Is young Andrewbuying more land or is his father moving to be closer to the Brackinsand his son?) 20 November 1801, Andrew Smith of Orange to James Warick of same,150 dollars, 65 1/2 acres West side of Stoney Creek, bounded by thelands of Brackin and Boyle...proved August Term, 1804, Bk 9, p. 214.(This must be the land that Andrew Smith bought from Jess Thomas in1795, minus 1 acre). 16 March, 1804, Andrew Smith of Orange to Jacob Garrison, 220dollars, 63 acres and 3 1/2 ch, beginning at Jacob Garrison'sline...up Stoney Creek...proved November Term, 1805. Deed Bk 12, p. 78(This is the land that William Brackin gave his son-in-law, AndrewSmith in 1795). 1800 census of Orange Co., N.C. Unfortunately, this census isorganized in a loosely alphabetical way rather than geographically.All the surnames beginning with "s" are listed together, yet theSmiths are interspersed as though it had been written as the districtscame in. There were two Andrew Smiths listed, but one was misspelledas "Andrene". Andrene was listed beside Robert, John and WilliamSmith, the same names as those who owned land on Back Creek in OrangeCounty. This Andrew's numbers were: 11101-00101. Andrew and his wifewere over 45. This is consistent with what is known of Back CreekAndrew Smith from his descendent Ann Guthrie, except that one of hisdaughters must have been living elsewhere. The numbers for the theother Andrew were: 11110-03010. This must be young Andrew and HannahBrackin, both 26-44. If they were 21 or so when they married in 1781,they would have been born c. 1760. Their oldest child was a boy inthe 16-25 group, probably born c. 1782. What happened to Andreus/Andrew and Sarah? Did they die between1795 when their 189 acres was sold and this 1800 census or did theymove elsewhere. They would have been about 65 in 1795. No probaterecord has been found for Andrew and there were no female heads ofhousehold in 1800. If Andrew had no land at the time of his death, itis possible that there was no probate record.
