Captian Jeremiah Smith was one of the first settlers in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia having come to the area from New Jersey. He was a heroic frontiersman who helped tame the frontier wilderness of Old Frederick County, VA. He fought with distinction during the French and Indian War and was a leader of economic development during times of peace. He is a direct descendant of two of the Founders of New Jersey, Thomas Smith and John Pancoast.
