      dau of

      Kennedy Crosson of family that owned alot of land

      near Langenburg.  Kennedy's farm was immediately

      south of the farm taht was Davis Whitten's.

      In l898 they moved onto Kennedy Crosson's farm,

      which George W appears to have owned, since he

      ran it as if he did and profitted from it greatly.

         Martha Ann, b 4/21/1889

         George I b 9/9/1892.

      farm near Chesterville that Jim McVey heard about 

      from his mother and wondered if it was John Smith's

    (This is confusing; DAR's Delaware Bible REcords has these

    two daughters of Mary Jane.  Then an Emma dau of Mary Dorothea,

    m the Zinberg.)

   Britain She d 7/24/1924 he d 1/18/1908 both buried New 

   London Presbyt Ch cemetery.

   Adopted one son at age six as of 1903; William J Kennady.

     He created rucus, was temporarily jailed because he threw

     a violent rage, believing he was disinherited, burned his

     father's will, tried to flee (?) and was found hiding in a

     doorway of the family house.  Eventually it was decided he

     inherited his father's estate.

   A brother of John Westly committed suicide due to depression.  

   Robert Sr came from Ireland; James Kennedy married Catherine

   Dehaven is not of the same family.  The Kennady's were a 

   small family. 

   (notes from Jim McVey make it appear

   that he may be son of marriage to Catherine sister of Mary

   Dehaven; she married James Kennedy 1785-1860, that is signif

   for some reason.)

Winfield Scott b 4/28/1847  married Almeta _____ lived in

    White Clay Creek 1900 census

    Winfield Scott is the name of a famous Civil War era general

    and U.S. presidential candidate.  

Children of William Henry Smith Sr and Mary Emma Thompson

Willard Thompson Smith b  Dec 12, 1871,White Clay Creek,

    DE.  Died Salt Lake City, Utah, Jan 6, 1925, of carcinoma

    of the stomach.  He graduated from college in 1892, and in

    1900 was serving the second of two terms as a member of the 

    5-person Delaware State Board of Education, specifically

    responsible as Superintendent of Schools for Delaware County.

    He served one term in the state legislature. Then, after

    1908, he went to Salt Lake City, Utah, as a special agent

    for teh U.S. government land office - according to his

    death certificate.  On 28 Aug 1908

    prob in Delaware City, Delaware, he married Julia Rebecca C

    Sadler, the daughter of James E adn Laura Sadler.  She d 1927.

    The 1900

    census shows her in Delaware City with her family and 

    Willard Smith, strangely enough, boarding.  James Sadler

    is said by Willard's son's widow to have been a mayor of

    Delaware City, and Willard's son William was a mayor of

    Delaware City for about two terms in the 1950's or so.  James

    Sadler was also a coal seller.  Smith family members still

    live on James Sadler's property, but in 1900, it was mortgaged

    and James and wife came from Maryland.  

    1880 census has

    him nine years old, census enumerated ___ day of June. 

    registration at Delaware College age 16, Sept 6, 1888.

    Regitration for bar (not admitted until Nov 1903), Delaware

    he said on Sept 20 1897 he was 25.

    Willard is buried in Salt Lake City. His widow returned to

    Delaware City. Then somehow one of the five children got sent

    to live with Aunt Mayme, my father's aunt, and the others got

    sent to two of their mother's sisters in Delaware City. Laura

    and Gertrude.
