Adonijah Smith, 2nd child and first-born son of Stephen and Mary Smithm was born in Sussex co New Jersey in 1796. The family left New Jersey in 1809 and settled in Fayette Co Pennsylvania for a time. In 1823 they moved to Meigs County Ohio on a flatboat, and bought land in Meigs county near Chester.

About 1825 Adonijah Smith married Mary Butterfield. They became parents of eleven children; seven sons: Furman, Stephen, Josiah, Clark B, Isaac B, Giles B and Silas; and four daughters: Margaret, Sarah Ann, Melissa, and Samaria.

In 1851, Adonijah Smith was an election supervisor in Salisbury township where he is listed in the censuses of 1860-1870 and 1880. There is some confusion over his exact death date.
