red mail Smedley, Rev. Joseph B., Mary Ann Ratcliff
I am searching for early information about my G-G-Grandfather, the Rev, Joseph B. Smedley, b 1792 in Derbyshire*, d 1877 in Mansfield, Arkansas. The initial 'B' is probably Bucknell. It appears in two following generations. *Family accounts also indicate possibility of his birth in Notthingham, Milnethorpe, Westmoreland, Sheffield, Melbourne, or Manchester. His parents are unknown, therefore, locating birth/baptism records is going to be difficult. He was married to Mary Ann Ratcliff, b. 30 April 1799, Manchester, m. 26 Dec 1820, St Johns Church, Manchester, his residence listed Milnthorpe on the document. Mary Ann died 6 July 1836 in Indian Territory, Oklahoma. Joseph's occupation on the marriage license was listed as Minister of the Gospel. He graduated in 1818 from Mr. Bogue's Missionary Academy (Gosport Academy); and was ordained Sept 18, 1818, Stepney Chapel. He preached at Congregational churches in Milnthorpe 1818-1822. He sailed from Liverpool to Philadelphia, PA, aboard the Ship "Arab" in 1829. His occupation on the ship's record listed "dyer". (Possibly he worked in a mill in the Derbyshire area?) Mary Ann and six children joined him in Philadelphia two months later. Rev. Joseph B. Smedley had had a distinguished career in the US. He was hired in 1835 by the US Government and served with the Baptist Mission Board as a teacher and missionary in the Indian Territory of Oklahoma. From 1829 until his death in 1877 at age 85, his activities were well-documented with, publications, news articles, letters from two presidents, and records in the Oklahoma Archives. He was postumously inducted into the Oklahoma Baptist Hall of Fame in 1992. His wife, Mary Ann Ratcliff, was the daughter of John Ratcliff and Mary Jeffries. John Ratcliff was said to have been a diplomat to Holland. Any information you may have about Rev. Joseph B. Smedley's parents, date of birth, siblings, or information about Mary Ann Ratcliff's family will be greatly appreciated. I will gladly share information. Thank you, Arlena
