Smith came to Charlton from Connecticut. He bought, at 20 shillings per acre, two hundred acres from the 5,000 acre tract, (Lot 4), lying south of what is now the west end of Charlton Village. He occupied the site on and off over the next eight years with his wife Hannah. Smith was engaged in the coasting trade, and appears to have been a privateer during the Revolutionary War. He had eight children with Hannah and he died in 1828. Smith deeded the cemetery to the public in 1808. Several Revolutionary War veterans are buried here.
