NAME(S): James Smith
NOTE: There seems to be some confusion with some family trees on Ancestry.com with a James W.
Smith in Oregon in 1900 and 1910 census and some have Joel Smith's second wife as mother
of James D., but the 1860 census has him and his twin brother Daniel listed at 3 months old
and their mother as Joel's first wife Caroiline. Joel's second wife's name was Elizabeth A.
Broadwell and the Oregon James W. Smith's mother's name was also Elizabeth which has
apparently lead some to think that the two James are the same person. They are not.
The James in Oregon was James Woodfield Smith who was born in Benton County, Oregon
Territory and who's parents were John C.and Elizabeth A. (Miller) Smith. The Oregon
James W. Smith died March 25, 1945 in Cottage Grove, Lane County, Oregon. This can be
checked out on the "Early Oregonian Search" website HERE. I had some difficulty tracing
this Jsames Smith after 1880 but was finally able to locate him in 1900 til his death in 1920
in Santa Barbara County, California.
