4. appeared in the household of Peter Smith Jr. In a census in 1820 in Brunswick Twp., Schuylkill, PA. 4 4 The only Smiths (or alternate spelling) in the 1820 census Brunswick Township are Peter, Jacob, and the widow Eve.

It appears the 1820 census listings for Brunswick are listed in order of who lived next to others, rather than being alphabetized.

On page 6 we find Peter Smith was recorded with this household
Free White Persons - Males - Under 10: 2 sons born 1811-1820
Free White Persons - Males - 26 thru 44: 1 father Peter born 1776-1795
Free White Persons - Females - Under 10: 1 daughter born 1811-1820
Free White Persons - Females - 16 thru 25: 1 mother born 1796-1804

Listed before Peter are Michael Riegel, Ernst Fisher, and Jacob Paul. Listed after Peter are John Shaner and John Paul.

On page 8 of 9 Jacob Smith was recorded with this household:
Free White Persons - Males - Under 10: 1 son born 1811-1820
Free White Persons - Males - 26 thru 44: 1 father Jacob born 1776-1795
Free White Persons - Females - Under 10: 2 daughters born1811-1820
Free White Persons - Females - 16 thru 25: 1 mother born 1796-1804

Listed before Jacob are Michael and Christian Deibert, and after him Daniel Hummel and Magdalena Heiser..

Further down the same page is listed the widow Eve Smith, living alone:
Free White Persons - Females - 45 and over: 1 Eve born before 1775

Listed next after Eve are households Jacob Hoffman born 1776-1795 and Cornelius Hoffman born before 1775. It is very likely the widow Eve Smith is living next to the Hoffmans because the families are related or intermarried.


Eva married Peter Schmidt Sr., son of Johannes Dietrich Schmidt and Anna Maria. (Peter Schmidt Sr. was born on 12 May 1759 in Reading, Berks, PA,9 10 died on 29 May 1809 in West Brunswick Twp., Schuylkill, PA 9 10 and was buried in West Brunswick Twp.: Zion Red Church, Schuylkill, PA 10.)
