Hi Shari,

My parents and grandparents are all from WVa. Logan and Man area. I've recently created a facebook page for the descendants of William Smute (from the online book "The SMoots of Maryland and Virginia) and George Whitfield SMoot. It is still not known who George Whitfield Smoot's father was but it is believed to either be James or Leonard (sons of John and Tomesen Smoot from the book) One of our members who is a descendant of George Whitfield Smoot recently did a DNA tests and it was found that he was also a descendant of William Smute from the book. It seems that you are connected to our family in a number of ways in the book so please feel free to join us at and add any info and pics of the family you would like. We already have quite a few members and photos on the page that you might be interested in. Hope to see you there.
