Smith Quick was the youngest child of Elijah Quick and his first wife Sarah (Reynolds) Quick. Elijah was the son of John Quick & Marget (Pedrick) Quick, and Sarah was the daughter of Titus Reynolds & Sarah (Husted) Reynolds. Smith's parents were married in New York, where Smith Quick and his elder siblings were born; but not long after Smith's birth the family moved West, traveling some distance down the Allegheny, and Ohio Rivers, on a flat boat built by his father. Smith's mother Sarah died sometime around or before 1824, after which Elijah would marry the widow Naomi (Gookins) Hosford. The Quicks did well where they settled in Indiana, and it was in Dearborn County, Indiana, on December 20, 1838, that Smith married the love of his life Mahalah Tryon, and started building a family of his own over in Montgomery County. However, in the 1850s, Smith and Mahalah picked up and moved on to Bement Township, in Piatt County, Illinois, where he farmed; and like the Quicks before him - prospered. Two of his sons: Isaiah, & Elsberry, served their country in the Union Army during the Civil War; and two of his sons: Elsberry, and Jasper, like their forbearers, became pioneers themselves, and helped to settle the Oklahoma Territory.
