    Robert successfully stowed away in a ship leaving Belfast, bound for Philadelphia, PA. Hunger and thirst forced him out and he was taken to the Captain who sold him to a man to work out his fare. He drifted west with other pioneers and stopped at Bedford or Hollidaysburg, PA, for a time because of hostile Indians. He is said to have married while in Hollidaysburg. When this threat subsided he continued westward and, sometime between 1770 and 1772, settled near Pittsburgh on what became known as the old Smith homestead
    Allegheny County was formed in 1788 from parts of Washington and Westmoreland Counties. The Smiths were living in the portion of Allegheny County taken from Washington County.
