In the same year he patented "Smoot's Hazard" of 121 acres, lying on Fresh Creek in Charles County, which in 1749 he deeded to Benjamin Fendall for 20 shillings. In 1756 he patented "Smoot's Venture", containing 343 acres.
The will of Thomas Smoot was dated August 28, 1781, and probated November 5, 1782, in Charles County. Edward, Josias, and Benjamin received equaled portions of the dwelling-plantation "Thompson's Hope". Samuel was bequeathed 20 acres of "Gateson Addition", while Arthur was devised the remainder of the tract whereon he was then residing.

Samuel Smoot maintained his seat at "Hunt's Venture" in Bryan Town Hundred, where in 1783 he was taxed for 100 acres of land, with seven in family. A few years later at the first census, his household consisted of himself, his two maiden daughters, and four slaves.
The will of Samuel Smoot was dated October 8, 1792, and proved in Charles County on November 12, 1792, by Arthur Smoot, Joseph Morton, and James Canter. Elizabeth his wife was bequeathed realty during widowhood. Edward received one-half of the land purchased from William Gerard, lying in Fauquier County, Virginia, while John received the remainder. Anne was devised "Maidstone" purchased from James Carrico and one-half of "Hunt's Venture", the dwelling-plantation, while Betsy Abigail Monica was willed the other half.

Edward Smoot, son of Thomas and Abigail Smoot, migrated from his home in Charles County, Maryland, to Fauquier County, Virginia, where in 1784 he deeded "Thompson's Hope" to his brother Josiah Smoot. Four years later he conveyed "Gates' Addition" to his brother Arthur.
The first available census of Fauquier County, Virginia, that is 1810, shows Edward Smoot the head of a family with a number of children (5 girls and 3 boys), the births of which ranged from after 1784 to before 1810. In 1820 he was again the head of a family with 4 girls and 5 boys. Both census schedules show him to be a fair owner of slaves.
Unfortunately, the names of his children have not been established and therefore many missing links remain unbridged. Marriage licenses were issued to the following maidens of Fauquier County, who were of ages to be his daughters: Polly Smoot and James Wood, Aug. 8, 1806; Carey Smoot and John Shumate, Feb. 6, 1808; Asenath C.

(17-- - 1797)
Josiah Smoot, son of Thomas and Abigail Smoot, was born in old William and Mary Parish, Charles County. He married first Christian, the daughter of James Grant. After the death of his first wife, he on December 22, 1781, married Anne Douglas, by the Rev. John McPherson, of William and Mary Parish. It is proved that one son was of the first union, but some doubt exists whether Samuel was of the first or second marriage.
Children of Josiah Smoot
1. Charles Smith Smoot, born Dec. 9, 1774, married Rachel ----.
2. Samuel Smoot married Lydia Gill. q.v.
During the Revolutionary War, Josiah Smoot served as a private in Captain Richard Bennett Mitchell's Company, of Charles County Militia.1

His executrix, Anne Smoot, had the inventory of his estate recorded on December 5, 1797, at which time Deborah Smoot and Catherine Smoot signed as the kinswomen. The final account on his estate was rendered in 1805, by Samuel Smoot, showing distribution to the widow and two sons.
Ultimately Charles Smoot instituted action against the estate for the services of a negro willed to his mother, Christian Smoot, by her father James Grant, then claimed by Anne Smoot, the executrix of Josiah Smoot. The case was decided in favor of the plaintiff, while Anne Smoot was ordered to pay £97/19/6 current money and interest from December 9, 1795, the day on which Charles Smoot became of age. The widow died intestate, whereon the court on January 29, 1806, ordered an inventory of the personal effects.

sons' William and Thomas, both enlisted in the Revolutionary Army as privates during April 1776. William served in Captain Henry Fauntleroy's Company, 5th Virginia Regiment of Foot, commanded by Colonel Josiah Parke. During the first year of his services he participated in the battles of Brunswick and White Plains. At the former place, he reenlisted. In February 1778, he was engaged in the campaign around West Point. At muster, dated Pompton, December 1778, he was recorded as being ill at West Point, likewise, the musters of January and February at Middle Brooke, New Jersey, reported him ill. He was discharged February 28, 1779.
Thomas Smoot, his brother, enlisted at the same time in the identical company, and reenlisted in June 1778 for three years. In February 1778, he was reported ill at West Point, in Captain Bentley's Company, 3rd Virginia Regiment, commanded by Colonel William Heth. Subsequent muster rolls show him ill at West Point, where he died January 11, 1779.
Edward Smoot6 Edward Smoot, son of Samuel and Elizabeth Smoot, was born in Charles County, Maryland. By the will of his father he received land purchased from William Gerard lying in Fauquier County, Virginia, where he established his homestead. On June 11, 1788, bond was offered for his marriage to Susannah Hitch, with Christopher Hitch as the surety.
One does not find him as the head of a family in Fauquier County at the census of 1810, but it is believed that he was the Edward Smoot who was the one in 1820, with 5 boys all under 26 years of age and 5 girls all under 26 years. The following list of children is therefore probably incomplete.
Children of Edward and Susannah (Hitch) Smoot

On January 17, 1824, he deeded negroes to his wife Susannah and the following children--Josias, Rebecca, Aryanna, and Elwin. At the same date he assigned all debts to his son Thomas. The deeds were witnessed by John Neale, Edward Smoot Jr., Samuel Smoot, and Matthew Neale, and recorded on May 24, 1824. As no further record of Edward Smoot exists in Fauquier County, it is probable the various deeds of conveyance were in lieu of a last will and testament.
Consequently, five children are conclusively proved. It is assumed, however, that Samuel (named from his grandfather) and Edward (named from his father) two of the witnesses to the deeds of conveyance, are sons. Thomas Smoot6

Thomas Smoot, son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Davis) Smoot, was born between the year 1750-1760 in Charles County, Maryland. His wife was Catherine (Caty) ----, born 1760-1770.

On May 17, 1819, he sold another tract to John N.

The will of Thomas Smoot was dated May 10, 1824, but it was not proved until the November session of the court in 1830, with James Owens as the testator. He bequeathed his wife Caty and daughters-- Betsy, Caty, Nancy, Charlotte, and Polly--all lands of which he was seized in Rowan County, including the dwelling-plantation and a small tract of woodland.

On August 12, 1795, Leonard Smoot and Milly his wife, William Norman and Mary his wife, and Ezekiel Norman and Nancy his wife, all of Culpeper and Fauquier counties, conveyed to John Norman for £55 a tract of land containing 106 acres in Bromfield Parish on the little fork of the Rappahannock River, formerly belonging to Courtney Norman, deceased, whereon John Norman was then domiciled. Among the witnesses was Courtney Norman II.
The first available census for Fauquier County (1810) shows Leonard Smoot as the head of a family, with a wife born before 1765, and four girls and four boys, all born after 1794. Only three children, however, have been proved.

His eldest son Edward M. Smoot enlisted April 20, 1862, in Marion County, Missouri, in Co. A, First Northeast Missouri Cavalry under Colonel McCullough of the Confederate Forces, and gave his life to the cause. His popularity led to his election as First Lieutenant on July 2, 1862, but the company was not fully organized until July 29, 1862, owing to the presence of the Yankee Army. The company was forced to disperse in squads on October 18, and was ordered to assemble in Arkansas. On November 25, the entire company, each and every man well mounted, arrived at Pocahontas, Arkansas, and reported to Colonel Burbridge, but on December 1, 1862, was reorganized at Mill Creek, Izard County, Arkansas, Lieutenant Smoot was present with his company at muster on July 28, 1863, at Moore's Mill, Calloway County, Missouri, but was killed by the enemy on August 10, 1863, near Stacton, Missouri.
A number of citizens of Marion County, made the following deposition on January 23, 1865. "That we were residing in Palmyra in 1862 and that in the winter of that year one Edward Smoot a Rebel soldier was confined in the Palmyra Jail . . . that he made his escape from the jail and was arrested by a Federal soldier (Andrew Alsman) of Colonel Glover's Regiment from whom he escaped after quite a struggle in which he wristed Alsman's pistol from him . . . We have no doubt that Smoot was harbored and concealed in the city of Palmyra while the soldiers were searching for him".
Samuel Smoot, the believed son of Edward and Susannah (Hitch) Smoot, was born in Fauquier County, Virginia, around 1790. From August 1 to September 14, 1814, he served as a private in Captain James Payne's Company of Riflemen, attached to the 44th Virginia Regiment which was formed in Fauquier County. He was stationed at one time at Camp Alexandria.
On Feburary 24, 1812, Samuel Smoot secured license in Fauquier County to marry Betsy Harris, the daughter of Thomas Harris. Peculiarly, he was not listed as the head of a family in 1820, but he and his wife of "Fauquier County" were among the representatives of Thomas Harris who conveyed land to Samuel Chancellor, of Rappahannock County, sometime after 1820.
