Smock Ancestors

Please be lenient when reviewing the info listed here. I've just recently begun researching this family and am still attempting to put everyone in their proper place. As always, if you notice anything wrong with the facts presented here, please send me an e-mail and I'll make the necessary correction.

Good grief but this is a tough family to research! It seems that every male named their sons with the same names. Trying to differentiate one Cornelius or Leonard from another is no easy task. To make matters worse, there usually isn't but a year or two that separate the two Smock's you're trying to research. And don't even get me started on how many other researchers have their own opinions on who goes with which family! Adding to the confusion is the belief by some researchers that the Smock's originated in Germany. I believe they originated in The Netherlands.

WILLIAMS about 1873 in Union, Crawford County, Pennsylvania. She was born July, 1848 in Pennsylvania and died between 1910-1920 in probably Wood County, Ohio.

Notes for IRVIN SMOCK
On the 1900 census, there is a 3 year old girl, MILDRED, living in the household and she is listed as a granddaughter of IRVIN, born in December, 1896 in Pennsylvania. She is ELLA'S daughter but ELLA is listed as single with the last name of SMOCK. Could ELLA being an unwed mother be the reason the family moved to Ohio? In 1896 it was scandalous to have a child out of wedlock so maybe they moved to salvage ELLA'S reputation. MILDRED is born in Pennsylvania but by 1900 the family is living in Ohio so they moved sometime during those four years.
Also on the 1900 census, it is listed that FLORA had seven children with six living. There is a four year gap between IDA and MILTON so there could have been a child born during those years but on the 1910 census, it shows FLORA having six children with six living. So which is correct?

  1. LOUIS W. SMOCK, b. November, 1873, Union, Crawford County, Pennsylvania
