Okay, so this is what I do know:
George Henry Smith Sr was born 1849 possibly in Canada, married 1869 to Martha Almira Butts.  I believe I found them in the 1870 Lockport, Pa

Name:George Smith

Post Office:Girard
Value of real estate:View image
Household Members:

Yes, the names are a bit different, AND it says  he was born Pa, but do you KNOW how often they messed up census sheets??
This is the only George Smith, listed with an M (wife), in the 1870 census.  Unless they went to Canada in 1870, I honestly have no other leads on them.
After they married, they moved back to Youngsville, Warren, Pa area.  All three children (Anna, James, and George) were born in Warren County.  
After that, George Sr disappears, and Martha is married to Thomas Clark, living in Lockport, Pa again.
