Ledstone Smallwood is the son of Col. James Smallwood and Hester (Evans) Smallwood. He was born in 1667 in Charles County, Maryland. He was their second child, I believe. One source, apparently has his birth year as 1687.

He married Elizabeth Garland and they had nine children: Charity, Elizabeth, James, John, Ledstone, Mary, Susanna, William and Henrietta. Henrietta was born in 1718 and she is the child from whom I am descended. She married Daniel Noland, thereby connecting my Noland ancestors with the my Smallwood ancestors. She died in 1780.

The above information was obtained from the Truman Library website.
