What else do you know of this Eleazer Smith? so you know his children or brothers' children? I am looking for a Jacob Smith who lived in Madison, NJ around 1850's. He had married a Jane Dougherty, had at least three daughters, Mary, Sarah, and another daughter who married a Barnes.

Has any SMITH's of this line done any DNA testing.

Which of the many branches of the Greater SMITH Tree, does Eleazer, this one, belong?

I note that the ELMER girls are related to one another, who both married SMITH's.

One might venture a theory, since they are related, the

SMITH men, would also be so.


But then again, my MILLS have tripped over other MILLS lines, in their travels to the future.

Which by DNA testing, a MILLS did marry a SMITH, and that was in ca 1750s.

My brother, present day, 1960s mrried a SMITH girl.

Just for trivia.
