Moving West

 Thirteen Generations of a Smith Family
The Ancestors and Descendents of Albert Burton Smith


Samuel Smith and his wife Elizabeth were among the earliest settlers to America. They sailed west from England to Massachusetts in 1634 seeking new lands and opportunities. Their descendents now number in the thousands. This is the story of one line of those descendents and the related families who generation by generation pushed further into the American west in search of their own new lands and opportunities.
