  • Name Joseph Henry Smith  [1, 2
    • Joseph Smith was also known as Henry Smith according to historical records of Lower Merion Township about his grandson, Thomas V. Smith. He apparently took over the proprietership of the Flat Rock Hotel when Henry Grow Sr. died in 1826. When he died about 10 years later at the age of 33, his wife, Catherine ran the Flat Rock Hotel built by her father, Henry Grow Sr. with the help of her son, who was 14 at the time, until he was old enough to continue alone as the proprieter. Mary Righter Grow was still listed as the head of household in the 1830 census. She probably still lived in the family farmhouse. The Flat Rock Hotel sat on the northeast corner of Henry Sr's. original property. That portion was split and deeded to William Grow Smith by 1851.
