I am the author of the Smith Book mentioned by "DEB"
Yes there is confusion as to Sarah Smith (Bond by Thomas Smith..her brother) who married Thomas Gleaves, and the Elizabeth "Betsy" Smith who married Matthew Gleaves...all in Davidson Co TN. They are half-sisters, and have the same father,"Ezekiel Smith" and Sarah's mother was from Ezekiel Smith's first wife, the Cherokee Widow of Emanuel Choate who lived on The Holsten River in Washington District N C, and was killed by Indians in Dunsmore's War in 1774.
Elizabeth was by 2nd wife name unk. He left his first family in Washington CO NC (now TN) in 1784 with Green Berry Choate, and went to The Cumberland Dist. (Nashville),and lived rest of his life (1821) on Whites Creek Davidson CO TN. Thats a part of the story.. Bill Smith
