    Seeking information on marriage(s) & children of John O'Connor Smith

    Pamela McDonald Newbie

      John O'Connor Smith (or John OC Smith) was born 11 Dec 1760 in Oxford Township, Sussex Co, New Jersey. He died 19 Mar 1841 in Pickaway Co, Ohio. I have not been able to find evidence of his first marriage from which his eight children came. There is a marriage record for John Smith and Hannah Campbell in Pickaway Co, Ohio dated 24 May 1817; however, this marriage was late in John and Hannah's lives. I am specifically interested in John's daughter Sarah Smith (b. 6 Jun 1796 in Virginia; d. 24 Sep 1854 in Hancock Co, Ohio) who married John J Bell 17/19 Nov 1818 in Pickaway Co, Ohio. I am trying to establish proof that Sarah Smith was indeed John's daughter. I have been unable to find a probate document for John O'Connor Smith. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!
