Some SMITH research notes
Notes: The following persons named SMITH may have possible
connections to the family of Simeon and Eliza (Wheeler) Smith
- perhaps as children. Absolutely no proof of a connection exists,
but the names, dates and places make further research of interest.
Wheeler B. SMITH - b. about May 20, 1777; d. Feb. 26, 1845;
bur. Presbyterian cemetery, Sand Hill, Gowanda, Erie Co., NY.
Resided in Kent, Litchfield Co., CT, and Chenango Co., NY. Married
Priscilla STURTEVANT about 1798. Children: Sophia; Josiah; and
Polly SMITH - b. Ashford, Alleghany Co., NY, the daughter of
Simeon SMITH of Ashford, CT. Married Apr. 4, 1793, Perkins Bushnell
WOODWARD (b. 1770 Ashford, CT). The WOODWARDs lived at Centreville,
Alleghany Co., NY in 1853. Children: Anna; Polly; Phineas; Elizabeth;
Eliza; Perkins B.; Ezra Smith; Polly; and Christiana. <see
Bond, p. 664>
An analysis of SMITH given names Cattaraugus Co., NY, and in
the given names in the MERRILL family by Marlin MERRILL suggests
some relationship of Tamma SMITH to Henry, John, and/or Mason
SMITH of Yorkshire, NY and Hillboro, NH.
