John Smith came to Kentucky very early, along with his son after the Revolutionary War. He and his son, James Smith had a close relationship with both Daniel and Squire Boone. He died at the age of 106 after taking a stroll (yes a stroll at the age of 106 in 1841) and scratched his leg on a mulberry bush, and the scratch became infected. He is a hero, fighting in two wars and helping to settle and establish the beautiful state of Kentucky and Mill Creek in Hardin County.
