Looking for Hiram Henry Smith for 45 years

Query by lolasrosebud

This is my ggggrandfather. He was born in Chautauqua County New York in 1807. All the Smiths in our family led down from him and are all recorded. He was somehow involved with Israel Cash, also from Chautauqua, as he married his daughter Sarah in Lorrain Co. Ohio. There was a Jesse Smith who was a partner with Israel, but can find no info on "that" Jesse either. If anyone has any information, please contact me.
Thank you,
Rosemarie Grant

Thanks for all the replies, but it is his* parents* I'm looking for. I have been looking from the Plymouth colonies forward in hopes of finding a connection. At the time of his birth, that part of the country had only a few backwoodsman living there.

I could be wrong but I believe, Hiram Henry SMITH 1807-1872 married JULIA Cash at Russia, Lorraine, Ohio on the 13 March 1831. Julia,who was born 3 March 1814 in Franklin, Delaware, The daughter of Israel CASH 1784-1845 and Hannah WEBSTER 1785-1824.
Henry was born on the 3 September 1807 at Chautauqua and died on the 28 February 1872 in Sonoma, California. I know of one son to this marriage. Daniel Webster Smith born 21 January 1853 at White River, Oakland, Michigan and died 7 December 1930 at Fresno,California. Daniel Webster SMITH married Sarah Jane WEAVER 1850-1878 on the 13 June 1873 in Modesta, California.
Unfortunately I have nothing on Henry Hiram Smith as far as parents go. But maybe this opinion will help. Jan

Hmmmmmmmmm. Have you got another 45 years in you Rosemarie?

Thanks Jan. I have this info, but have never been able to find HH's parents. I have read lots of history books regarding this time period, both on line and in print, and find nothing. The CASH family's traveled from Scotland, colonies, Duchess County N.Y,Ohio, Iowa, Nebraska, and on to California/Oregon trial etc. Ours Smiths joined them with HH. and also the CARD family with the marriage of son William J Smith. No indeed I don't have another 45 years, and would like to get this resolved if I can before my teeth get any older. Thanks again Jan for the info I didn't have re: Sally Cash marriage.

Will keep slugging away,

Dear Jan, You are so good to people! As I travel through journals, I can't help but notice your response to subscribers. Many times, as the above responses indicate, you give census dates, ancestral identification, birth, death etc. Possibly many subscribers (including myself) have difficulty sometimes reading data. You lead them right in. This allows for better understanding and a jump start for them. You are to be praised. Thank you.
