The following two maps show the general location of the Smith family homestead near New Albany in Plain Township, Franklin County, OH, first on a plat map from 1856, and then on Google Earth imagery from 2010. Archibald Smith's property—identified here with a red frame—apparently extended west from Kitzmiller Road past Blacklick Creek (the Smith property is labeled "A. Smith Surveyor" on the original plat map). The Smith home still stands on the western side of the property, and the Abercrombie and Fitch Headquarters occupy the eastern side.
