Smith and associated lines from a GEDCOM at RootsWeb by Ronald Cox [email@example.com].
There was a John Smith as part of the1787 party; a married man, horse and cow, no children.
Hence would suggest either before 1787.
[Willard Tottle claims 1778- email 2 Jun 2001. Othneil, Silas, John & 11 other families incl. John Kelly b. 1748 made up party.]
Question as to name- was it Cooper, or was he called "Cooper" because of his trade?
