Notes on WilliamSmoak


1. Church records at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Cordova, SC,
show William Smoak to have been born in 1784.
2. Many records show a middle initial "G". This can't be confirmed
3. One story says he was called "William The German". Source of the "G"?
4. One son is William John, Jr.. Perhaps a name used to distinguish the two
as they lived in proximity?
