(There is no household for an Israel Smith as found in the 1800 census.)8 He appeared on the census of 1830 at Mentz, Cayuga, New York, USA; This family doesn't meet any expectations for being the same David Smith found in the 1800, 1810 and 1820 censuses. David should be 51 by this census. This family is probably the D. B. Smith who operated a retail store in Mentz until 1858 (D. B. and Walter H. Smith, brothers, from Orange county, opened a store in the building previously occupied by J. E. Smith, in the fall of 1824. After four or five years of successful business they separated, the former continuing the old store, and the latter removing to one across the way, both keeping the same line of goods, which was a general stock. D. B. Smith became wealthy and continued the business till about 1858, when, on account of age and infirmity, he was succeeded by his son, John T. Smith, who still carries the business. Walter sold goods for several years, without marked success, till about 1851, when to removed to Chemung county. )

    This is the family that is 6 households away from Oliver Bonker, however, it is also next door to Henry Montgomery, so it is probably from the other Smith line in Montezuma.
