Lucinda's father, my 5th-great-grandfather, was John Og McIntosh (1753-1829). He was a Scottish soldier in Cornwallis' army during the Revolutionary War, who decided to stay in America and moved from Virginia to Kentucky before settling in Wabash County, Illinois. I'll have more on him in future posts, but this is my first confirmation of a Scottish connection on my side of the family.
Lucinda McIntosh Smith submitted a widow's pension for Asa's service in the War of 1812. I'll have more on that in a separate post, but if her information is accurate, Asa Putnam Smith was born in Nova Scotia, Canada in 1783. Lucinda McIntosh and Asa Putnam Smith were married in Mount Carmel, Wabash County, Illinois.
