James Hamilton Smith owned a farm now located at 4121 Windy Road, Concord, the northwestern section of Cabarrus County. His great-granddaughter still lives at this address with her husband, although the house was torn down and rebuilt in the 1940's. In recent years, part of the old farm was sold to NASCAR race driver Ken Schrader, who now has his car-building operation there.
