About Alexander Smith

Alexander Smith (c. 1740-1779), with the backing of his father, John Smith, acquired several tracts of land and a ferry site on the Cape Fear River. Alexander's father, his older brothers, and the Needham Bryan family had established the town of Smithfield on the Neuse River twenty-five miles to the north. Alexander's father, who migrated from Virginia, had served in the Colonial Assembly from Johnston County in the mid-1740's. Both of Alexander's older brothers, John and Samuel, had served in the Provincial Congress in 1774 and 1775. All were staunch supporters of the Revolution, and John, Jr. was appointed a lieutenant colonel in the Continental army. Alexander himself was among the patriot forces at the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge.
