Ca. 1815 - Ca. 1845
Anna Everhart was born about 1815, in Hawkins County, Tennessee the daughter of Jacob and Catherine Everhart. On 14 June 1834, Annie Everhart and Leonard Smith were married in Greene County, Tennessee by Thomas Smith, Justice of the Peace. Leonard's uncle, Joab Dell, was on the marriage bond.
Leonard Smith was born 10 July 1812 in Greene County, Tennessee the son of Jacob and Barbara Dell Smith. His father's will was probated in Greene County on 5 July 1847 and named Leonard and his brothers Thomas, Henry, and John and sisters Rebecca, wife of Jacob Wattnebarger, Barbara Ann, and Hannah.
Both Anna and Leonard Smith were mentioned in Anna's mother, Catherine Everhart's will when it was written on 9 September 1844. Anna was still living at the time the will was written.
By 1850, when the census was taken, Leonard's wife was named Elizabeth. All of the children living in their household would have been born while Anna was still living and would have been the children of Leonard and Anna Everhart Smith. Children on census: Jacob age 15, William, age 13, Catherine, age 10, Henry, age 9.
Since their last know child was born about 1841, it is likely that Annie Everhart Smith died soon after her mother's will was written in 1844. After the death of Annie, Leonard married Elizabeth last name unknown.
On 10 December 1850, Leonard Smith sold his land in Greene County, Tennessee and with several other families moved to Carroll County, Indiana. There he purchased land and settled about four miles west of Burlington, Indiana. He is believe to have lived the remainder of his life there.
Elizabeth Smith died in Carroll County, Indiana on 11 September 1864, and Leonard married Samantha (Susan) Ford on 19 April 1866.
