MRIN-33 Charles Smith and Hannah Carr

Charles Smith and Hannah Carr

My maternal 4th great grandparents

MRIN-33

Charles Smith

  • Born: about 1793 in Maryland
  • Married: Hannah Carr on 13 Jan 1820 in Randolph County, (West) Virginia
  • Died: 16 Apr 1858 in Pendleton County, (West) Virginia
  • Buried:
  • Cause of Death: Dropsy
  • Parents:

Hannah Carr

  • Born: about 1792 in Virginia
  • Married: Charles Smith on 13 Jan 1820 in Randolph County, (West) Virginia
  • Died: sometime between 1850-1860. She is seen in the 1850 census in Randolph County, but not the 1860. Her husband died in 1858 in Pendleton County. She could have died in either location. So far, I have not been able to locate a source for her death. I’ve seen a few family trees that give her date of death as 1854, but not one of them offered a source as to where that date came from. It looks like they just copied it from one another.

  • Cause of Death:
  • Parents:

Their Children

  1. Andrew C. Smith (1820-1903)
  2. Mary Smith (????-before 1850)
  3. Jemima Smith (1825-1894) Married Jacob Roby
  4. Fatima/Fatema/Phatama “Fay” Smith (????-????) Married John Wolford

The 1850 census shows that Charles and Hannah were raising their granddaughter, America Smith, age 14. An 1852, Randolph County, WV marriage record found for America Ann Smith to Isaac Wolford states that she was a daughter of…(and of course there is faded handwriting and a white line going down the middle of the first name) “Mary Smith” is the best reading I could get.
