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.

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.
