George Lynch Smith Rev.1

b. 1775, d. 1868
     The Rev. George Lynch Smith was a North Carolinian by birth who first appeared in Georgia around 1807 when he became an elder and minister of the newly formed Disciples of Christ and performed marriages in the Athens area. He moved c. 1820 to Morgan Co. where he resided until the early 1830s, when he moved, after a break with the Desciples, to newly formed Stewart Co., in southwest Georgia. From there he was a delagate to the State Constitutional convention of 1833. He formed his own branch of the Christian Church at Red Hill in 1837, calling it Providence Chapel. This church, built in 1857, remains today as a monument to the religious and pioneeing spirit of the Rev. Mr. Smith. In 1847 the county lines were changed and his land was transferred from Stewart to Marion County. Around 1852 he moved to Macon Co., Ala., and apparently continued his pioneering spirit well into his 8th and 9th decades, until his death at age 93. He is said to lie in an unmarked grave at Mt. Tabor Churchyard, in the Smith-McGarrah cemetery on the southern edge of Marion Co.

George and Delanna Smith had 12 children, many of whom had very unusual Christian names. George Lynch Smith Rev. was born in 1775 at North Carolina. He married Delanna Peddy circa 1812 at Georgia. George Lynch Smith Rev. died in 1868.
