My John Hill's sister Sarah born 1769 Beekman Dutchess NY married a Matthew Smith born 1756 NY, likely Westchester or Goshen there in Wallkill. His father was Wait/Wright Smith, Goshen was Ulster County 'way back.

Towner A Jayne: believes Wait is eldest son. Matthew, blacksmith, also a son. And that an earlier Wait Smith, could be Matthew Sr's father, died Oct 1763 Wyoming Valley PA Indian massacre. Matthew Sr's uncle = Oliver = Wait's brother, sons of Wait Smith b 1687 Jamaica LI. Oliver d Goshen NY 1750-53.

*So not only do I wonder if & to whom widowed Sarah remarried, stepfather to Smith children, but who was Matthew's stepfather, who raised them when Matthew's mother was widowed.

And I'm unaware if "we" have a Thomas when and where you need him.
