History of the Town of Canadice, Ontario County, N.Y.: Daniel Beardsley, who had married the widow of Wheeler Thorpe of Delaware county came into town in 1818 and became the first settler on the place now owned by Lewis Rix.  This farm had been a part of the Smith place, consequently a portion of the owners of that farm will be repeated here.  After Beardsley, Jared Green, William Smith, John Morley, Ezra Spencer, Tilda Beers, Lorenzo D. Beers, Osband TerBush, Mrs. Eldridge and her son John were the owners.  Lorenzo D. Spencer once kept tavern here in a house moved from the south-west corner of the Becker farm.
Isaiah Smith, the father of Robert, came from Buttermilk Falls to Scipio in 1814, staid one year there, and came to town, and he and Robert lived together.  He was in the Revolution as body guard to General Washington, and his two sons, Robert and Samuel, were in the war of 1812, and were stationed at Brooklyn Heights.  Robert, by Susan Livingston, by an act of the Legislature, conveyed the farm to Humphrey Bump, from Cayuga county, in '26, and he sold to James Gay, who disposed of it to John Whitaker,.......
Isaiah Smith, spoken of before, built the first house on the Henry Hoagland farm in 1821.  He sold to Hoagland in 1823, who died on the farm, and the heirs sold in 1866 to the present owner, John R. Hicks.
History of the Town of Canadice, Ontario County, N.Y., by D. Byron Waite: The highway from the foot of the Canadice as far south as the residence of Hector was laid out July 20, 1812. South of that there was nothing of a road kind except an Indian trail leading up the lake shore. Gould staid here until 1818, when he sold out to Silas Reynolds, Sr., and went to the farm of Peter C. Swarts, where we shall leave him at present. Reynolds sold to Jeremiah Green, after which the farm passed thru the hands of Wm. Smith, Lorenzo D. Beers, Oscar F. Sisson, Chester Richardson and Cyrus Swan to the present owner. Green put up the frame of the present house and Wm. Smith finished it after he came in possession. Smith lived and died on the farm. The children of Smith were, Wm. who died in Ossian; Rebecca, the wife of Sam'l Marley, in Birdsall; Olive, wife of Milo Eldridge, a shoemaker and P.

Family tradition was that she was a midwife.
Matilda was cared for in her old age by William Kernahan and his daughter Ina. She also stayed with her other children. She reportedly died at a poor house.  Algia Walker remembers his Grandmother Matilde Goho being taken away by horse and wagon to the poorhouse when he was about six years old.  He never saw her again and doesn't know when she died or where she is buried.
