SMALLWOOD FAMILY HISTORY
THE SMALLWOOD FAMILY OF CHOKOLOSKEE, FLORIDA (TREE 229, FORMERLY TREE 375)
C.S. 'Ted' Smallwood, a pioneer in Collier County, Florida, founded a general store on Chokoloskee Island in 1906. He retired in 1941, but the store continued to flourish, joining the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Restoration of the Historic Smallwood Store as a museum was started in 1990, and the store makes for an interesting visit today.
The family of Ted and his wife Mamie (born 1879 South Carolina, married 1897) continued to flourish in the area, and a tree of around 250 names is held by J Anthony Davis, one of the board of directors of the Smallwood Museum. The tree stretches back to Robert Smallwood (1733-1775) of Midway, St. John parish, now Liberty County, Georgia, and his wife Nancy Ann Mitchell (1735 - after 12 Mar 1799). Robert's mother was Mary nee Bateman, who died before 15 Dec 1773 in Midway.
