  1. I am wondering if somehow these Smiths are related to my 4th great grandfather Bernard Smith (born 1772? MD) who traveled from Maryland through Kentucky to Perry County, Missouri. His wife was Ann Drury and they had a son named James Joseph or Joseph James (born 1814? possibly in Kentucky and not Perry, Missouri?). I am told that his father was also Bernard Smith (born 1750’s) and married a Miss Gallaher. I am not sure if Bernard and Ann Smith stayed in Kentucky or moved through to Missouri.
