There is a birth/baptism record on page 25 of the Zion Spies Evangelical Church Records, berks Co Pa, for a John Shmidt born 10/31/1796 bp 1/8/1797 parents Frank & Barbara, sp. George Babb & Wife Sophia. Found while researching the Schmeck line, placing here to rule out later. (Dates do not match, but is birth date proven?)
In the 1840 census there are the following unknown - may be children, or may be unrelated:
Male born between 1826-1830
Female born between 1835-1840
Female between 1826-1830
Female born 1821-1825
Stephen Smith Dec. 26, 1822
Jonas Smith 1828-1899
There is a Sarah, Age 6, in the 1860 census. Jonas, his wife and their daughter Hannah are also on there.. But Sarah is not theirs. Born in 1854, Hannah would have been 51 when she was born. Possible? But she is not there in 1870, at age 16, so I am not convinced.
