OLD SMITH FAMILY PHOTOS



I WANT TO THANK JEAN BARNES, DESCENDANT OF THOMAS SMITH, AND SON HUGH SMITH, FOR HER GENEROSITY IN SHARING HER PHOTOS WITH US, E-Mail, jeanb1261@earthlink.net


  • Smith House Before Restoration, newspaper photo (Bel Air 'Aegis' or Havre de Grace 'Record')sent to me by descendant, Mary Henderson. The Smith Ferry House, now on the National Register of Historic Places, photo shows the Civil War era school house on the left before it was moved and the 'not original' back porch.


  • Thomas Smith Sr. Home
    He built a portion of this home that still exists and is located in the Susquehanna State Park, Maryland. It is privately owned and not open to the public. The owner has a lifetime lease and after his death it will be owned by the National Park Service. This is the back of the house that faces the Susquehanna River and what used to be the wharf or dock. The river was much higher in 1774. To the right (of the view from the house,) out of view is Havre de Grace and the Chesapeake Bay.
    He purchased the Ferry in 1772 and shortly after started the construction of this house.- Photo courtesy Jean Barnes
