Query: GOLDSMITH of Harrison County

GOLDSMITH—Looking for information on the family of my great-great-grandmother, Mary Jane GOLDSMITH (born about 1800 in Harrison County, Indiana). She married David SHIELDS (born about 1800 in Fulton County, Illinois) on August 24, 1826 in Harrison County, Indiana. They had a son named Samuel Heizer Shields—is HEIZER/HIZER a family name? I believe they also had a daughter named Naomi.

All I know about Mary Jane’s family was that her father was named Samuel Goldsmith. Is the Samuel Goldsmith who married Lydia BOOKER on October 31, 1835 in Harrison County any relation? If anyone has any information on this family, I would appreciate it.

  1. Hizer/Hiser is a family name, my ancestor India Viola Rous married a Jefferson Cornelius Hizer in Switzerland County, Indiana in 1885. He was the son of Cornelius Hizer and Maria Dunning who were married in 1855 in Switzerland County, Indiana
