The Good Ship Robert and Alice Passenger List

The patriarch of the Smoak family in South Carolina was Johann George Rauch. The Smoak/Smoke/Rauch families arrived in America in the 1740's. The German name "Rauch" literally translates into English as "smoke". This explains the name evolution in the English colony of South Carolina.
Here is the list:
