6 March 1997 Donovan Yingst dyingst@rmci.net SMITH/YINGST

Maria SMITH, b. 4 Nov. 1774, probably in Lancaster Co. (now Lebanon) m.Abraham YINGST about 1795. She d. 7 April 1847 in Derry Twp., Dauphin Co.Abraham was born 10 January 1775, Lebanon, Lancaster Co. and d. 13 May1855, Derry Twp. Dauphin Co. Both are buried in the United Brethren Church Cemetery at what was Derry Church, Dauphin Co. A deed from Abraham and Maria YINGST, dated 1 April 1847, conveys 70.6 acres in Derry Twp. to John YINGST (a son); one adjoining land owner in the land description is Christian SMITH, perhaps Maria's relative. Christina SMITH of Millerstown, Annville Twp., Lebanon Co. wrote her will 17 May 1828 stating that she was the widow of John SMITH; she listed thefollowing ten children: Catharine, wife of John BLAUCH (deceased), Mary, wife of Abraham YINGST, John, Christina, wife of Jacob ULRICH, Elizabeth, wife of Michael MEYER, Elias, Conrad, Sarah, wife of Daniel STUMPFE, Joseph, and Nancy, wife of Rudolph BOLTZ. She named sons-in-law Abraham YINGST and Rudolph BOLTZ as executors. In a codicil dated 2 Feb. 1841, she withdrew Abraham YINGST and Rudolph BOLTZ as executors and named her son, Conrad SMITH as the executor. Lebanon Co. Index to Estates lists Conrad SMITH of Annville Twp. As the Executor, with the will probated 18 August 1842; from this, it is presumed that she probably died July/August 1842.The Lebanon Co. Index to Estates lists John SMITH of Annville Twp. as deceased and Christina-Conrad SMITH as Administrators; Letters of Administration, Inventory, and Bond were filed 17 March 1818 and the Account was filed 29 February 1820. So far, I have not obtained any of the documents, but presume that John SMITH died intestate, probably February/March 1818.

I would like to hear from anyone that has ties to or knows about this family, especially SMITH. All responses are welcome!
