Judith, Thank you so very very much for your message. How wonderful that you know about the builder of your house and his sons. You are certainly living in history. I don't think it was our Reuben unfortunately who built your house.
Our Reuben Smith went to NY soon after the Rev War and then to MI with his sons early 1800s. Our Reuben was one of the Vermont Sufferers who were granted land in Chenango Co NY after the Rev War. We still have never found any birth record for him. He was born in 1755 in your town. Thanks so much. from Ruth
