I started searching for information on my great, great, great, grandfather 5 years ago and am now going back to Woodstock again. I'm hoping that some new people might read my message and be able to help me. Sylvester married a Hannah Hayward, Jan. 18, 1787 in Woodstock, Ct. Their first child was Caty, dob Oct. 25, 1787 Woodstock, Ct.
Sometime around late 1787 Sylvester, along with brothers, James, Levi and possibly Asa Smith settled in Williamstown, Vt. Sylvester and Hannah then had 6 sons:
John dob Nov. 14, 1789 died Aug. 20, 1808
Joseph dob May 1, 1792 died ??? no info
William dob May 19, 1795 (was a Capt. in the war)
married a Mary ?? dob @ 1802 Ct.)
Benjamin Howard dob Jun 17, 1800 died Jan 17, 1899 Gouverneur, N.Y.
Abida Smith dob June 9, 1803 (my great, great, grandfather)
died Jan. 16, 1886 in Clarendon, Michigan
Hathan Waldo? dob Aug 1, 1806 died ?? no info
Does anyone have any info on this branch of Smith? Would love to hear from you.
