Notes for ANDREW SMITH:
Andrew and his wife and seven children emigrated from Ireland to America in 1847, on the ship Berlin (having left Ireland in June 1847) landing in Philadelphia. He was one of the early pioneers of Beechwoods, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania. 
Andrew wrote in a family history around 1860:
"According to the information I received from my father, our ancestors lived in the west of Scotland, and belonged to the Covenanteers of that section. Soon after the assassination of Archbishop Sharp, about 1680, or during the persecution which followed that even, three brothers of the Smith family migrated to Ireland, and located on the River Foyle, between Londonderry and Lifford. The brother from whom I am descended was named Andrew. He rented a farm located two miles below Lifford, on which his desendants lived until about 1820.
I know but little of the history of our forefathers from their location in Ireland untl my grandfather's time. They were in Ireland during the civil war between King James and King William and I believe were driven into Derry along with other prostestants during the siege of that place."
