red mail Smith 1714
My 4xggm was a Mary Smith. My cowardly nature has kept me from trying to find her ancestry even though I have been researching my family tree for 44 years! But lately I have screwed up my courage and tried. Various pointers have made me conclude that she was probably born in 1714 or 1715. I began to collect all the christenings of Mary SmithÕs within 30 miles of the place she married which was Claverley SAL ? 18 of them. Two in particular have interested me ? Mary Smith b: 4 Apr 1714, x: 10 Apr 1714 Old Swinford WOR. Mary Smith b: 23 Apr 1715, x: 25 Apr 1715 Old Swinford WOR. My Mary SmithÕs father-in-law was born in Old Swinford and I wondered if her husband met her when visiting his grandparents. There is nothing about any of the others I have found which makes them more likely than each other. Does anyone have anything on either of these SMITH families from Old Swinford WOR?
