Schmittou Family

by admin on August 11th, 2008

Looking for anyone that is part of the Schmittou or Von Schmittou Family

I live in Texas and i have been researching the Schmittou family for about 2 years. Any information would help. I know they came from the TN area. I have plans to make it up that way in March or April. I understand there is also a Schmittou Farm and Schmittou Cemetery. Any information or pictures would be great.
Please respond to

    Hello…I realize your post is old but I have just come across it. My great-great grandparents were Schmittous from Slayden (Dickson County) TN. I have been told that the family name had originally been Von Schmittou but the “Von” had been dropped so as to sound more “American”. About two weeks ago I visited Potts Cemetery (in Slayden)where my great-great grandparents (Virginia Schmittou Thomason and J W Thomason) are buried. While looking for Potts Cemetery, we also came across a Hayes Cemetery nearby which had several Schmittous and (I believe, if memory serves) Von Schmittous as well. The Schmittous in Hayes Cemetery are not related to me, as far as I know. I would love to hear anything you might can share regarding the Schmittou/Von Schmittou family. It appears this site does not allow email addresses but I will check back on the message board.

    I am new to this site and just came across your 2008 entry. I am a GG-GS of Alpha Sarah VonSchmittou that married John Richard Smith, 26 Nov 1856. I have photos of their markers in the Freeman Cemetery, Dickson Co., TN, as well a family photo of them, their children and some G-children at Beefrange, TN (an old community near Cumberland Furnace, Dickson, TN). Alpha Sara’s line is through parents Obriant and Elizabeth (Baker) VonSchmittou and G-parents F.F. and Ally (Reynolds) VonSchmittou. Both Obriant (29 May 1812) and Elizabeth (8 MAr 1814) were born in TN, F.F. was born in Prussia (6 Jan 1772) and Ally Reynolds (11 May 1774) in NC. No marriage date for Obriant and Elizabeth, F.F. and Ally were married 27 Jun 1811. Hope this is information you can use. We enjoy sharing family information, but especially photos. Do by chance have any VonSchmittou images?

    Regards, Daniel Vaughn
