There is an autobiography of Oliver (Alvin) Smith in the "HCC 1881" in the Jeffereson Twp section. Copied Here... "OLIVER SMITH farmer : P. O. North Robinson: was born in Crawford Co. in 1846, and is a son of Joseph Smith, who was of German descent, his parents coming to America about 1795, and settling in Pennsylvania, where they lived and died and where Joseph lived until about 1840, when he came to Crawford Co. In his family there were five children - Leonard, Gilbert, Mary E., Matilda and Oliver, all of whom live in the county yet. Oliver is the youngest of the family, and he yet resides on the farm that his father purchased when he came to the county and which was cleared and improved by the family. In 1869, Oliver was married to Eliza Van Voorhis. daughter of W. R. Van Voorhis, whose biography appears in this work, and who was among the first settlers of the county, from this union, there are seven children - Florence V., Frank, Le Roy, Jessie M., Orvil A., Harry. and the youngest is yet unnamed. Mr. Smith has always followed farming and stock-growing, for a business."
