William Smith is the son of James Smith who was one of the original Smith brothers from Darke County, Ohio.  James, his sons and daughters with their families immigrated to Benton County, Indiana area about 1836.  The elder James died almost immediately after arriving in Benton County and is the first to be buried in the cemetery.  This William Smith is likely a first cousin to our James Smith who left Darke county for the Fort Wayne area in about 1844 or 1845.
