My 4x grandfather was Williams Smeathers. On the Historical Marker in front of the Hartford Museum, KY, it says he was A Man of Courage.|
In a book "Law of the Heart" by Dorothy Gentry of Owensboro, KY, she mentions he was 'Just & Honorable' man.
I believe this. Although we have a difficult time proving his participation in the Rev. War, and his whereabouts prior to 1797, this story below at least gives a picture of this grandfather whose blood still flows through our veins four generations later with honour, justice & courage.
