Additional Notes: Gabriel Smith was my grt. grt. grt. grt. grandfather. It is believed that his wife was Sarah Anna Downs. I want to thank the person providing
me with new information that proves Gabriel was married to Sarah, source: from book series, "Elbert County Deed Books, 1791-1835," by Michal Martin Farmer, pub. 1997
from Elbert County Deed Book P, p. 4, a deed made on 15 Feb. 1806 from Gabriel & his wife, Sarah Smith to Hugh MacDonald for 140 acres, being a part of 2 tracts of 100 acres
each granted to the said Smith on 22 Feb. 1787. He later married Matilda Carter, nee Chandler, on Sept. 30, 1837 in Carroll County, Ga. Gabriel lived in Wilkes, Elbert, Franklin &
Carroll County, Ga. at different ! times. He entered the 1820 Land Lottery of Ga, drawing land in Irwin County and he also was also on a list of names of men who drew land from
Capt. Walters' District in the lottery of 1825 who were Revolutionary soldiers. Gabriel also entered the 1827 land lottery, drawing land in Muscogee County, Ga. But because he did
not take up the land, the land reverted back to the state. His daughter, Sarah Smith born on 02 th Sep. 1802 in Elbert County, Ga. & was my grt. grt. grt. grandmother and she
married James Brown in Franklin County, Ga. on 16th Feb.1822. Sarah & James Brown removed to Randolph County, Alabama.
