Hi, I am researching and looking for a connection between two Smith families, prevalent in Sussex County, Delaware, and Maryland.
My family comes down through Charlton Smith and Ann Marvel. I know Charlton was one of the first of his particular family to leave Maryland and travel and live in Delaware. His ancestors had been in Maryland for several generations before this happened.
The other Smiths I am researching is from the family of Charles Somerset Smith who married Elizabeth Sirman. They married, raised a family and lived mainly in Trappe, Wicomico, Maryland. His family of Smiths also go back several generations.
I am hoping to find some link, no matter how small between the two families. Has anyone out there heard or come across such a thing?
Any ideas, suggestions, etc., would be greatly appreciated!
