BEEDING, KITELEY, SMITH, SPATES posted by Diane Smith Battershell on Thursday, January 29, 1998

I am researching the family of Samuel SMITH b. ca 1740 MD? who m. Hannah KITELEY (possibly b. 1748 Baltimore Co).  I think that Samuel and his family were listed on the 1790 census of Montgomery Co, MD.  They moved to Rowan (later became Davie) Co, North Carolina about 1792.  Their children were: Jane b. 1770, John b. 1774, William b. 1777, Samuel b. 1779, James b. 1782, Thomas b. 1784, Levi Kiteley b. 1786, Sarah b. 1789 & Perry b. 1792.  They were probably of Scotch/English origin and of the Methodist Episcopal faith in North Carolina.  Jane SMITH b. 1770, married a BEEDING possibly in Montgomery Co, MD.  On the 1790 Montgomery Co, MD census, Samuel SMITH was listed after a Robert SPATES whom I've been told was also married to a Nancy BEEDING.  I would be interested in hearing from anyone who may have information or is researching any of these surnames.  Thanks!
