SCHMIDT, SMITH posted by Deonna Smith Vaughan on Sunday, November 2, 1997

I am trying to locate members of the Bernard SMITH family. Bernard Smith was my gg-granduncle who immigrated from Prussia sometime in the mid-1800's. His original name was SCHMIDT. His wife's name was Lydia, and they had the following children: William - b ca. 1862, Henry - b ca 1866, Mary A. - b ca 1868, Charles b ca 1870, Emma - b ca 1873, and Maggie - b ca 1877. I believe Lydia died in 1881, and Bernard died in 1898. They were members of the Amity Reformed Church. At the time of Bernard's death his son, Charles, was working at the Cumberland Independent job printing office.
