John Newton Smith 

Submitted by: Linda Stewart
John Newton SMITH, son of Christopher SMITH and Sarah WALLACE.
Born Oct 31, 1829 in Point Pleasant, Clermont Co., OH.  He died 2 May 1900
in Grant or Garfield Co., OK.  Buried in Grant Co., OK.
He married Rebecca WILSON who was born in Moscow or Cincinnati,
(daughter of Matthew James WILSON and Anne MANNING), in
 Clermont Co., OH 17 April 1851.   She died 11 Dec. 1913 in
 Enid, Garfield Co., OK
Family history says that the Wallace's were from across the river in
Kentucky and that Sarah died when John was about 6 months old,
which would be about April or May 1830.  (I haven't found the record yet.)
Also that Christopher had a Grist Mill on the Ohio River at Point Pleasant,
but haven't found any proof of that except family stories.
John is my 2nd great grandfather.
